Red Bull Dance Your Style National Final happening this weekend in Atlanta

The highly anticipated Red Bull Dance Your Style National Final is set to take place in Atlanta on May 18. This global all-styles, 1v1 street dance event will feature the best dancers from across the country, competing for a chance to advance to the World Final in Mumbai.

The event follows a bracket-style tournament format where dancers battle one-on-one to surprise music selections. This setup highlights the spontaneous nature of street dance, challenging competitors to adapt their moves on the spot. With no pre-planned choreography, pre-selected music, or a panel of judges, dancers rely solely on the crowd’s vote to advance to the next round.

Tickets for this unique event are available for purchase here.

In addition to the main event, various workshops will be held, led by some of the world’s best dancers. These workshops are open to the public for registration while spots last. On May 17, a Battle Royale will take place at the Center Stage Theater, featuring 2v2 battles and a major Team USA vs. Team Africa headlining battle. Tickets for this event are also available for purchase here.
