No plans for the weekend? Gather your dance pals and join us in our biggest celebration yet as part of the Teenage Dance Challenge 2019 Finals, happening this Saturday (12 October) at The Star Vista!
This year, we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of TDC with our biggest edition yet! In addition to the killer performances from our finalists, you can also look forward to a plethora of exciting activities in store for everyone – from fun arcade games to mass random play dance sessions, and more! Check out what you can expect at the Finals:
#1 FREE GOODIE BAG WITH PURCHASE OF MAGAZINE
From 5pm to 7pm, simply make a purchase of two of our latest Teenage issues which will come bundled with a slew of awesome beauty goodies and vouchers at just $5 (that’s a pretty sick deal if you ask us!). You will also receive a coupon that will entitle you to either a round of Pump It Up or classic Mario Kart. Be sure to come down early to get first dibs at the arcade machines!
#2 SHOW US YOUR BEST K-POP MOVES
Think you’ve got what it takes to give our K-pop Dance Cover category finalists a run for their money? Watch out for our Random Play Dance Sessions that will be happening midway through the event, where K-pop songs will be blasted at random for y’all to flaunt those moves. The stage is all yours!
Psst… OG K-pop fans, there will also be a session dedicated to throwback bops from the likes of Super Junior, SNSD, 2NE1 and more – you wouldn’t want to miss it.
#3 CHEER FOR YOUR FAVOURITE GROUPS
Things are starting to heat up! From 7pm onwards, get ready to cheer your hardest for your favourite dance crews as finalists from the Street Dance and K-pop Dance Cover categories storm the stage for the long-awaited final showdown.
Don’t worry if you’re not able to come down and show your support, join us in our Instalive as we will be live-streaming the competition as well as the results reveal in intervals, starting from 7pm on @TeenageMagazine!
#4 MEET OUR STAR-STUDDED PANEL OF JUDGES
As the saying goes, “to be the best, you have to be judged by the best”. This is why we’ve enlisted a star-studded panel of judges to grace this special occasion, including veteran choreographer Kim Dong Hyoung of 5th Avenue School of Jazz and Dance Factory of K-pop, as well as Akif Halqi of local dance crew STARREseconds.
Joining the lineup are also two new faces: Alfred Sng, a former K-pop trainee who went on to become a multifaceted performer in his own right, and Tasha Low, whom you might recognise as the ex leader of K-pop girl group SKARF and a fan-favourite contestant in Idol School.
Fun fact: did you know that Akif, Alfred and Tasha are star alums of Teenage Dance Challenge too?
#5 TAKE PART IN FUN STAGE GAMES
Besides the competition, we’ve also got fab prizes to be given away to the crowd courtesy of K-beauty brand THEFACESHOP. There will be a slew of interactive stage games to look forward to, where the audience members can take a shot at nailing spontaneous dance challenges and walk away with these goodies!
#6 PARTY IT UP AT THE AFTER-PARTY
The party’s just getting started! After the winners announcement, there will be an after-party where a DJ will be on site to spin till late – because what better way to celebrate the victory than a night of electrifying tunes, great atmosphere and trophies in hand? It’s time to hit the dancefloor!
Teenage Dance Challenge 2019 Finals will be happening on 12 October from 5pm to 10pm at The Star Vista Atrium. We’ll see you there!
