Dancers, listen up! The Gatsby Dance Competition is returning for the fourth time. If you're a student who is into b-boying, popping and locking or modern dance, this is the competition for you! The competition is open to all students in Malaysia, and from seven other countries: Hong Kong, Indonesia, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan and Thailand. Think about it, if you make it past the Malaysian Finals, you might just get to dance off with students from these countries - and in Japan too.
Auditions will be held in several locations around the country - Johor Baru (Oct 15), Penang (Oct 22), Kota Kinabalu (Oct 29) and Kuala Lumpur (Nov 5). Shortlisted candidates from each venue will automatically qualify for the Malaysian Finals, which will be held on Jan 14, 2012. All you need to do to join the competition is - apart from knowing how to dance - to download a 'theme song' from the list given at the Gatsby Dance Competition Malaysia facebook page to practice to. Then, head to any of the 'recruitment drive' venues.
If you can't make it to the venues, worry not, because you can also upload your videos to the facebook page, where fans will vote for their favourite clips. Participants with the most number of 'likes' for their video clips will also qualify for the finals. Here's the best part- the Malaysian champion will go on an all-expenses paid trip for the final showdown against winners from seven other countries in the Asia Grand final in Japan on March 10. 2012.
