Street dance is a generic term used to describe dance styles that have evolved outside of the dance studios and on to open spaces such as streets, parks, school courtyards, etc. They are often social in nature and involves improvisations and interactions with the other dancers and spectators. Generally, a street dance is based on a unique feel or style that is expressed through the dance, usually tied to a certain musical genre. The street dances include hip hop, breakdance, krumping, punking, reggae, jazz and house dance. Street dance competitions are getting increasingly popular and several international events are held around the world every year. These competitions focus not only on judged battles but choreographed shows as well.
Fraser & Neave Sdn Bhd is organizing a F&N Freestylz Show Ur Moves Street Dance Competition and is inviting all budding street dancers to sign up for this competition. The top prize for this competition includes a trip to South Korea to train with Gamblerz Crew who are reportedly one of the best B-boys dance crews in the world. B-boy stands for breakdancing-boy but the style is different from the 1980s breakdancing in that it fuses traditional moves with a more modern hip hop style. The second and third place winners will receive cash prizes of RM8000 and RM5000 respectively. At the event launch held by F&N in Kuala Lumpur recently, there were street dance performances by Floor Fever Crew, Alex Ng and Mohd Naim Mohd Fauzi.
The F&N Freestylz Show Ur Moves Street Dance Competition is open to all Malaysians between the ages of 15 and 25. Participants may only enter as a team, with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5 crew members. The preliminary rounds will be held from now till July 12 and which will culminate in the grand final scheduled for August 15 2009 in Kuala Lumpur. Judging will be based on choreography, technique, execution, creativity, rhythm and showmanship. To promote this competition, F&N will be taking to the roads and conducting roadshows in 140 locations in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak. Be sure to be there when they visit your hometown.
