A fierce dance battle is about to take place and fans are going to judge who gets called to be the champion.

Filipinos love to dance. In the country, it was around the 90s that the term 'street dance' became known. Since then, hundreds and thousands of street dance battles have been held around the country – professionally and even amateur barangay competitions. Several groups have even joined international street dance battles and have won, representing the Philippines.

Filipino dance troupes take pride in their skill, creativity, hard work, dedication, and commitment to dancing. They spend long hours of non-stop practicing, and some groups and individuals are even faced with financial difficulties but are still continuing to dance – creating their own costumes, working part-time just to sustain their love for dancing. Their passion for the art has been praised and recognized around the world.

Nowadays, a lot of Filipino dancers are being known around the world as well, thanks to social media.

With Filipinos making some noise in the world of dance internationally, finally, a one-of-a-kind dance battle competition has made its way to the Philippines, to look for the best dancer who could compete in the international stage.

Red Bull Dance Your Style makes its way to the Philippines. With the aim to build a credible dance battle experience for diverse local dance communities in the country and connect them with the international scene. 

Red Bull, a popular energy drink, is a functional beverage that gives wings to people and ideas which helps vitalize the body and mind. It is also their mission to support talent and passion, which is why they have come up with the dance battle to support and showcase world-class talent.
