So you think you can dance? Forget about the ratings juggernaut that is Dancing With the Stars and dance like nobody is watching, because Atlantic Records and DiscountDanceSupply.com, the leading Internet source for high-quality dancewear, will be hosting a first-of-its kind contest in support of Christina Perri's debut EP, The Ocean Way Sessions, which is available next Tuesday, November 9. Fans will be challenged to choreograph a dance using one of the EP's tracks, which can be heard here, starting today. Submissions will be accepted from November 8 through the 30 and a winner will be announced on Monday, December 13.
The contest's top ten will be generated by votes from fans. Voting will open November 9. The top ten vote getters will be announced with their videos at www.discountdance.com. From these ten finalists, a winner will be selected by a distinguished panel of judges including Christina Perri, Stacey Tookey (choreographer So You Think You Can Dance), Chelsie Hightower (dancer on Dancing With the Stars), Tabitha & Napoleon Dumo aka Nappy Tabs (So You Think You Can Dance), numerous Las Vegas shows and America's Next Dance Crew choreographers) and Shannon Mathers (So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing With the Stars choreographer and owner of CDR).
The grand prize winners will be flown to perform their choreographed dance routine live with Perri on January 16 at the CDR Convention in Dallas, TX. Get ready to dance your ass off.
The contest is a continuation of Perri's hope to give back to the dance world. A performance to "Jar of Hearts" on So You Think You Can Dance not only ignited their audience, it also propelled Christina to the Top of the iTunes chart and into a record deal with Atlantic Records. Her love for this community has continued through to her music video, which was choreographed by Stacey Tookey and features an all-star crew of dancers.
Are you planning to dance your ass off for this Christina Perri contest?
