Dancers from across Qatar will showcase their talent at Doha’s first ‘Hip-hop Challenge’ at the Qatar Volleyball Association Gymnasium in the Al Arabi Sports Club on March 23.
Organised by Events and Beyond in collaboration with Simply Pinoy magazine and Renderfarmtown, the competition is aimed at uniting diverse nationalities in Doha through dance. Conchita Ponce, one of the organisers of the event, said that part of the proceeds would be donated to World Vision Philippines, a charity and non-profit organisation which helps thousands of poor students in the Philippines go to school.
Ponce said: “This is not just a competition where an individual or team proves their superior dance skills. It is also a cultural show that is open to all nationalities and whose message broadens the horizons of the definition of hip-hop. It brings together both amateur and professional dancers for a cause as it is also a fund-raising campaign for World Vision Philippines. Our aim is to unite and bring together different nationalities and involve as many people as possible to be part of the legacy that this challenge wishes to leave behind. ”
The dance competition is open to young male and female dancers between 14-35 years of age, who will battle it out for cash prizes.
The hip-hop dance showdown is divided into amateur and professional categories, with each category having duo and group performances. A duo composition can be both boys or girls or a combination of both, while a group performance must have a minimum of six and a maximum of 12 members regardless of their gender.
