Amateur and professional dancers aged between 18 and 35 can register for the contest. They can submit their dancing entries in group or individual until April 24 and audiences will vote for the best entries on the institute’s Facebook page before the panel of judges picks them on April 30.

Three selected groups will be named on the Facebook page on May 2 and the winning one will pocket a cash prize of VND10 million (nearly US$500). They will attend a workshop with artist Anne Nguyen to improve their performance at Ben Thanh Theater in District 1 on May 4.

Anne founded the company in 2005. Influenced by her scientific background, Anne deconstructs the various hip-hop moves and opens up new areas of expression by setting geometrical constraints. In an extension of her practice of martial arts, she develops choreographic principles that bring hip-hop dancers into contact within their own dance forms.

Anne won the 2013 Nouveau Talent Chorégraphie SACD prize in France.

The contest is supported by Gameloft Vietnam, Dancenter, Saigon Dub Station, Arabesque Dance Vietnam and MTV Vietnam.
