For a chance to dance at the Festival Light’s Switch On, dance crews from all over the Mother City will give it their all.
This weekend, ten neighborhood dance groups will compete at the V&A Waterfront for the top spot and the chance to take part in the 26th annual Festive Lights Switch-On.
Only 10 people will compete in the Dance Battle for top honors at the V&A Waterfront Amphitheatre on Sunday, November 19, from 13:30 until 15 :15, according to the City of Cape Town, who received 46 entries.
Cash prizes will also be awarded to the top three, with the winning team receiving R10,000, R5,000, and R2,000 respectively.
At the yearly Festive Lights Switch On, dance professionals Blake Williams and Nkosinathi Sangweni will be chosen to perform on the main stage.
Blaqshandis Dance Crew from Nyanga, 021 Rebels from Bonteheuwel, Street Kings from Tafelsig, Dynamic Dance Co from Plumstead, Born Spartans Dance Arena from Brackenfell, Hood Hop/Swag Step Crew, TENACITY Movement from Ravensmead, and Creativeworks Dance Studio from Diep River are the top ten crews.
The City also extends an invitation to the public to support these crews at the Waterfront event. One of the most well-liked ways to express oneself in our nation and city is through dance, so I have no doubt that this showdown will draw a packed house. Additionally, there might be some public prizes while the crews compete for attention and cash prizes.
