The dance floor is heating up following the first-ever Red Bull Dance Your Style Cebu qualifier event. This event has sparked a wave of enthusiasm among dancers and dance enthusiasts across the country, as Red Bull, known for its support of sports, culture, and high-energy events, is back for another year in the world of dance.
Red Bull Dance Your Style is a unique competition that celebrates individuality, creativity, and the diversity of dance styles. Unlike traditional dance competitions with set routines, Red Bull Dance Your Style encourages dancers to showcase their improvisational skills and freestyle moves. It’s all about embracing your personal style and letting your passion for dance shine.
Last July 15, Cebu concluded its first ever qualifier round for Red Bull Dance Your Style at Trademark Cebu, marking an exhilarating milestone in this year’s competition.
16 dancers from the region showcased their extraordinary skills and unleashed their creativity on the dance floor. The atmosphere was electric as performers gave it their all, leaving no doubt that Cebu is a powerhouse of talent in the dancing world.
After seeing stellar performances, Shihan Maui, known on the dance floor as Baby Titan, emerged as the dancer who took home the crown. His performance was nothing short of outstanding, captivating the audience with his unique style, precision, and artistic expression.
“Winning the regional tournament for Red Bull Dance Your Style competition is a lifelong dream fulfilled,” Maui said in an interview. “Since I was a child, I’ve been captivated by the power of dance and the thrill of competition. It’s been a journey of countless rehearsals, pushing my limits, and never giving up on my passion. This victory represents the culmination of years of hard work and dedication. It’s a testament to the unwavering belief in my abilities and the sacrifices made along the way.”
In addition to Baby Titan, three contestants proved to be standouts in the competition, earning their spots in the top 4. These included JPY, Taw, and Nemesis, who was also the competition’s only female finalist.
With Cebu’s regional qualifiers now over, eyes now turn to the regional qualifiers in the country’s capital of Manila. Set to happen on July 22 at URBN QC.
The top 4 finalists from each qualifier will eventually move on to the National Finals in September. From there, the winner of the National Finals will qualify for the Red Bull Dance Your Style World Finals in Frankfurt, Germany in November.
