Crews Wanted: GLOW Dance Festival Battle

June 11, 2012

GLOW Dance Festival (Saturday 30 June) is the biggest, most spectacular dance event ever to be staged in Herefordshire. One day. One night. 3000 people. 500 performers. 6 stages. Drums. Fire. Live Music and Unforgettable dance.

Teaming up with Breathe the Beat, GLOW is hosting a battle on the main stage and we are looking for 8 bboy/bgirl crews, with up to 4 members each to take part. The battle will be made up of both professional and semi-professional crews, so it’s a great opportunity to mix with the best and see how you stack up!

Usually found competing in (and winning) dance contests around the globe, Brooke and Roxy from Plague Dance Crew, 2011 Hip Hop International World Champions, will be performing at Glow alongside Hereford’s 2 Faced Dance Company and other unforgettable acts. Brooke is one of the most versatile street dancers and Roxy is fast becoming one of the top b-girls on the planet both with skills across all styles of dance from popping to hip hop to tap dance, even acrobatics!
