LOS ANGELES, May 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The premiere one-on-one street dance competition is coming to the US for the first full-fledged tour this summer. Red Bull Dance Your Style is all about giving freedom to dancers and showcasing the world of street dance in front of a live audience. The dancers are invited to compete live in the round in front of an audience who will vote based on their ability to WOW the crowd to advance to the next round.

Red Bull Dance Your Style showcases the best dancers in the US across hip-hop, popping, waacking, and locking. Participating artists will have to use the dancefloor as their canvas to thrill, surprise, and delight the audience. Winners from the Red Bull Dance Your Style US National Final in Vegas in September will advance to the Red Bull Dance Your Style World Final taking place in Paris, France on October 12th.
After more than 50 events held in more than 30 countries all over the world, the global street dance battle will bring together only the most exceptional talents to compete at the first-ever World Final.
