New York City Throwdown
All winners will receive Our ECS Champions shot glasses as well as a bottle of Winners Milk to wash down all the GLORY
We are trying something new this year with our first ever Anything Goes NYC Team Battle Competition.
Here are the rules:
We are accepting 8 teams total (teams must have at least three couples to enter). Teams can perform ANY or AS MANY styles of swing as they like. While this is meant to be a partnered team competition solo jazz and charleston are also acceptable... in fact, anything is acceptable (extra points for a solid running 90's style running man).
Saturday Night, after our first band set.
All teams dance one after the other. 16x8 choreographed sections. Each team will get two passes through. Our judges will choose the top 4 teams. All BPMs for this contest will be set at a medium/fast tempo which will be good for Lindy Hop, St.Louis Shag, Balboa and Collegiate Shag.
Judging guidelines for Prelims: points awarded for badassery.
**Mid band set we will announce the top 4 teams. This will allow each team to reconvene if necessary**
Saturday Night, after our second band set.
One on One/ Team vs Team to live music.
