New set of dancers are set to emerge in the Nigerian entertainment industry, as KOGA ENTERTAINMENTpresents ‘DANCE 234’, a dance reality show likened to no other for young people looking to pave their ways into history by dancing for a cause and of course for fame.
Dance 234 is bringing a refreshingly new dimension to the dance reality industry. For the first time in the history of dance reality show in Nigeria, the focus will not mainly be on hip hop style of dance as most reality shows are known for; DANCE234 will accommodate all forms of dance style.
According to Jemila Musa, the producer of the show, ‘this is the first time a dance reality show will be accommodating all genres of dance and according importance to them. What we are looking for are pure dancers, we want you to come just the way you are. If the style of dance you are comfortable with is hip hop, galala, fuji, highlife, traditional dance or what have you, our doors are open. As a matter of fact, we are more than willing to accommodate a new style of dance. What we want are dancers in their purest form and people who can sufficiently express themselves through dance’.
The contestants will have to convince the fierce and experienced team of judges that consist of Brandiny of ‘The Mask’ dance team, Preere Yibowei a Nigerian dance instructor and a yet-to-be disclosed foreign dance expert at auditions that will be held in Lagos, Benin, Abuja and Enugu in June. Sales of forms at N3000 start in the month of May nation-wide in all branches of Zenith Banks.
Twenty finalists from the auditions held in all four regions will be brought together in Lagos to battle it out on stage for the grand price of a car, N1 000 000 (one million naira), and a dance course abroad. First and second runner-up will get a N1 000 000 and N750 000 respectively. The lives of these twenty finalists will surely not remain the same as their skills will be brought to limelight in eviction shows that will be aired weekly on local and international TV stations.
