Can you keep the rhythm with the Knicks City Dancers?

Do you think your studio has what it takes to be as fabulous as the Knicks City Dancers? If you do, and you want to prove it, you should seriously consider applying to Can You Keep The Rhythm?—the 2nd annual competition offered by The United States Tournament of Dance.

 

A Knicks City Dancer will come to your studio and choreograph a hip-hop routine tailored specifically for your team. Then on March 1, all the studios will compete with their routines at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. The top three performances will be featured online for a fan vote. The winner gets the real KCD experience by performing at halftime in Madison Square Garden on March 18!

 

But hurry up because the deadline for faxing a completed registration form is February 20. Head over to http://kcd.nyknicks.com/events.html for the details and necessary paperwork. If you don't end up winning, at least you'll have a sweet routine to perform at your recital…
