1. The dance contest is open to groups consisting of 4-16 members and may be made up of all males or females or a combination of males and females. They do not necessarily have to be a cover group, but this competition is open to cover groups as well. If you’re a group of friends who just LOVES to dance, this contest is for YOU!
2. Shoot a video of your audition piece.
– Start with a short introduction or a welcome message from your group (30 seconds max)
– The dance piece may be a mash-up of Kpop and non-Kpop songs, as long as 80% of the music is Korean
– Minimum of 3 1/2 minutes, maximum of 5 minutes
– This will serve as the group’s audition video
IMPORTANT: This should be a video specifically shot for this audition. Videos from past performances will not be considered.
ALSO IMPORTANT: Only one (1) dance/cover group per individual. One person joining two or more groups is STRICTLY NOT ALLOWED.
