To start of the Day of Movement this year, they will have a two vs two kids category and a one vs one adult category for the freestyle dance battle. There is a $200 cash prize per division, three judges, and the dance battle is open to all styles. The semi-finals and finals will be held during the Spring Performance. If a student needs a partner, they will allow adult relatives to enter with their child. This will be a very fun experience!
At 2 p.m., they will host a free family dance masterclass with Chrybaby Cozie, who is the guest artist this year! Chrybaby is a pioneer/creator of Harlem Litefeet and one of the EDN! Teachers in New York City, and they are so excited to have him inspiring the community! Finally they will hold their EDN Spring Performance (starting at 3:30 p.m.), where their weekly classes and various guest artists perform for their community.
The event is donation-based. Everybody Dance Now! will allocate all funds raised towards continuing to offer free or low-cost dance classes to hundreds of dancers each week.
