The Printworks biggest dance competition returns to see new acts battle it out for the £1000 cash prize and the chance to perform at the Manchester Christmas Light Switch On. This years open auditions are taking place on the 27th July!


Starting midday on Saturday 27th July, The Printworks launches Street Dancer 2013, a search to find the best street and hip-hop dancers across the North West. The competition is open to all dancers; solos, duos and groups, and only 8 acts will make it to the final. Those keen to showcase their toe-tapping and body popping talents on The Printworks stage in front of a panel of industry judges need to email to confirm their place.


Last year’s winners Avenue have gone on to do great things, as well as being one of the highlights of the Manchester Christmas Light Switch On in 2012.

The Street Dancer final will be held at midday on Saturday 3rd August. Contestants from the open audition will be whittled down to the top 8 who will perform again on the stage in front of our celebrity judge Nathan Gordon from Flawless who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent, as well as our three other industry experts.


Nathan explained; “Having been to Manchester on numerous occasions, I have no doubt that there’s talent there. I’m very excited and looking forward to seeing what
all the dancers have to offer at Street Dancer 2013 this year!”


Fred Booth, Centre Director of The Printworks explains;

“Street Dancer is one of the highlights in our events calendar and we are very excited to welcome all the talented acts to The Printworks for what we hope will be yet another successful year for Street Dancer!”
