More than 200 young contestants from eight schools in Ho Chi Minh City and ten schools in Hanoi gathered at Kim Lien High School in Hanoi and Hung Vuong High School in Ho Chi Minh City last month to participate in the first round of auditions for the dance4life Hip Hop Dance Contest, titled â€œStart dancing. Stop AIDS.â€
Organised by Rutgers WPF in cooperation with Big Toe Crew, all performances were filmed and their video clips uploaded to the official contest website (www.dance4lifehiphopcontest.vn) where the public voted for their favourite dance crew.
Winning dance crews will have a chance to perform with Big Toe Crew at the contestâ€™s final events on May 8 at the Youth Theatre in Hanoi and on May 15 at Hung Vuong School in Ho Chi Minh City. Their performances will then be broadcast worldwide through the dance4life International and dance4life Vietnam websites.
