AEF Urban Dance Contest

All styles battle

For the third year running, the Greek hip hop and street dance scene is strongly represented in the Festival in the form of the Layers of Street thematic section. Following its two successful instalments in the last couple of years, the Athens Epidaurus Festival Urban Dance Contest, which introduced the Peiraios 260 audience to the world of hip hop and street dance, is back this year with new, electrifying dance battles spread across two evenings, once again curated by dancer and choreographer Ilias Chatzigeorgiou.

Some of the best dancers, established and up-and-coming alike, will compete in two categories (1vs1 Hip Hop Battle and 2vs2 All Styles Battle), claiming the winning title of the 3rd Athens Epidaurus Festival Urban Dance Contest and significant money prizes.

The judges, distinguished dancers from Greece and abroad, will be asked to decide this year’s winners. Audiences will also have the opportunity to enjoy them dancing in the Judges Showcases section.

Host Sifu Versus, with his charismatic presence and familiar voice, will keep us company on both nights, while wonderful dance music will be blasting from DJ AmazeMe’s decks. After the end of the battles, the latter will invite dancers and audiences to a dance celebration with no boundaries.
