The Namibia Dance Sport Academy is hosting the Global Dance Supreme – Namibia online qualifiers from 1 to 3 November 2020.

This is being done to select a national team that will represent Namibia at the Global Dance Supreme Inter-Continental Online Championships being hosted from 26 to 29 November 2020 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

This qualifier is endorsed by Dance Sport Namibia, the national dance and dance sport control federation.

Both dance events will be hosted online due to Covid-19.

The dance styles recommended by Global Dance Supreme include Hip Hop, Break dance, Popping, L.A. Style, House, Krump, Voguing, New Jack Swing, Locking, Dance Hall and Afro-Style.

To enter the competition you need to record a clear, unedited video of your dance crew using front centre angle only.

The video can be sent to Venancius Rukero at 081 239 1244 or [email protected]
A Namibian team was selected in September 2019 to participate in the inter-continental championships. “Due to the xenophobic attacks in South Africa at the time, we decided to withdraw from the competition,” said the president of Dance Sport Namibia, Venancius Rukero.

He said that dancers are quite eager to participate in the championships.

“Dancers from the Erongo region have won several national dance competitions. Many dancers on our national database are from the Erongo region. I can confidently say that it is a region of great dancers. I would love to see dancers from the region enter this competition and showcase their talent.”

Rukero explained there are three different divisions dancers can enter and compete in.

There is the Tiny Tots Division (5 to 10 members) for dancers aged 5 to 8 years. Their routine should be about 90 seconds.

Under the Amateur Division (5 – 10 members), there are various age groups; junior (7 to 12 years – routine should be 90 seconds), teen (13 to 17 years – routine should be 2 minutes), duchess (all female; 15 years and older – routine should be 2 minutes).

For the legion division, which can include 11 – 40 members, there’s no age restriction and the routine time should vary between three minutes to three minutes and 30 seconds.

In the national championships division, the crew category consists of 5 to 10 members.

The age groups are junior (ages 7 to 12 – routine should be 90 seconds); teen (ages 13 to 17 – routine should be 2 minutes); and Afro styles (no age restriction – routine time should be 2 minutes).

Duchess (all female, 15 years and over, routine should be 2 minutes).

Adult (18 years and over, routine time is 2 minutes) and in the legion category, which can include 11 to 40 members, there are no age restrictions and routine should be between three minutes and three minutes 30 seconds.

Major prizes are up for grabs and can be checked out on the Global Dance Supreme website.
