Edit: Voting time has ended, results are as follows:







For the top 3, a custom subreddit flair will be given as a prize 🙂

It's time for the finals of the first r/Dance tournament! We got six finalists ready to go, and just as before, the event is fully community judged 😀

For the finals the voting will be slightly different from qualifiers. In the finals, you will have to place the dancers in order of preference, placed 1-6. The results will be calculated according to a modified version of the WDSF skating system used in dancesport competitions. The voting is done via Google Forms:

Voting form

Note, you'll be required to sign in to Google to prevent duplicate voting. Email addresses aren't collected though, so you can rest easy. Also, do join us on the r/Dance Discord server, in case you're interested in following the competition more closely 😀

As was the case for the first tournament, the tournament is being run at the r/Dance Discord server, so head on over there if you want to take part! Not to worry though, the videos and results will be updated on the subreddit in pinned posts, so no need to worry about missing any of the submissions 😉

The deadline for registration is April 16th, 12pm London time, or a bit over a week after this post, so be sure to join in before then 😀

Edit: I had accidentally typed in May for the registration deadline, while it was supposed to be April, sorry bout that

It isn’t unusual to feel reflective at the start of a new year, but as winter 2020 turns into spring 2021, I’m feeling more pensive than I have in recent years. I’ve written before in the pages of Dancing Times about how lucky I am to be living a dancing life that, though adapted, is […]

Strictly Speaking: The final

What an extraordinary end to the series. The Strictly final aired just hours after Boris Johnson made his latest screeching u-turn, announcing that millions of people would have to cancel their festive plans and spend Christmas separated from loved ones. Could our dance show, which has been an escapist haven during a grim, dark winter, […]

Strictly Speaking: Week 8

Can we believe we’ve only got one show to go? Sob! Anyhow, this was – understandably – not a vintage semi-final. It feels like the celebs have barely begun, and yet here we are asking them to learn two dances. Overall, this… did not go well. It was basically the weakest outing for everyone except […]

Strictly Speaking: Week 7

Well, that was a jolly Musicals Week. Although very strange to think it’s already the quarter-finals, when it feels like we’ve only just begun the series. Product of both a shorter Strictly, and time losing all meaning in 2020. I’m both relieved we’re nearly at the end of this year and sad that our sparkly […]

Strictly Speaking: Week 6

A rather mediocre performance week, with some improvement in scoring, and alas still some glaring biases. However, poor Clara Amfo really doomed herself with an error-strewn jive that was actually marked quite kindly, yet cemented her place in the dance-off. Though I still think she got a raw deal overall this series, we never really […]

Revolt TV: Black Rob passes away

R.I.P. Robert "Black Rob" Ross JULY 12, 1969 - APRIL 17, 2021

Jeff Weiss: RIP Black Rob, one of the great millennium-era crime rap novelists, gruff but with Harlem slickness, who endured fire & brimstone to briefly reach the apex, before gravity and the law took hold. Of course, "Whoa," which owned the world for a full year, the platonic tunnel banger.

Open Mike Eagle: damn rest in peace Black Rob. we have to come up with a way to take care of our artists after the industry is done with them.

Cormega: Black Rob had a clean heart in a dirty game. I’m hurting I wish I got to speak to him one last time at least. Don’t tell the world how much you care about a person tell the person how much you care about them while they are accepting what the world has to offer. Palms up together

Lloyd Banks: R.I.P Black Rob

Pete Rock: All this death in hip hop really SUCKS!!! R.I.P. DMX & Black Rob! I cant believe i just said that. Just dont sound right 😢 no time to grieve 1 death anymore X just died last week and BR dies today 🤦🏾‍♂️😢😭

Pharaohe Monche: Rest In Peace. Black Rob. I’m stuck. I’m processing. I’m praying. I’m staring at the wall. Condolences to your children & family.

Westside Gunn: RIP to the BUFFALO KID BLACK ROB 🤲🏽 prayers up for the Family #CULTURE

LL Cool J: Black Rob. A story teller. An MC. a gentleman every time I saw him. Rest in power my brother. Folded handsHeart suit

GZA: Rest In Peace, Black Rob.

Q-Tip: RIP BLACK ROB... sad news hard week... Folded handsFolded handsFolded hands

[R.A. The Rugged Man:]() Rest In Peace BLACK ROB. He was a great MC and a good dude. My favorite line from him was "Ran out of ammo and started throwing bottles". [Whoa!] tho with [BUCKWILD] made history. #HARLEM #NYC #HIPHOP

Roc Marciano: I met her uptown on dykman aight then!!! R.I.P Black Rob Broken heartBroken heartBroken heartRose

Mello Music Group: A few months back @JoellOrtiz and I were talking about reaching out to Black Rob to do a track together. At that time we heard he wasn't doing well. Nothing but saddened to hear he passed away today. Rest in peace.

Rexx Life Raj: damn dude .. rest easy black rob. that’s crazy

Statik Selektah: No joke i had a dream last night about Black Rob, that i was talking to him about a song we got... rest easy Rob.. 💔

Elaquent: Not black rob??!?

Sevn Thomas: damn RIP Black Rob

do you guys make tiny sets with your moves or do you go over them individually?

Hi guys....Sorry if this post is kind of odd. Not sure if the pic is allowed here but I'll try. How do you guys straighten your sweeping leg at the start of the flare? Ex. clil's flare, the way he starts it....it's pretty straight. My sweeping leg is crunched up when I start my flares. I don't think this is a flexibility issue....more of a technique issue because I was able to straighten it at times but the rest of my form suffers.

Also, I noticed that bboys with really good flares start kicking their non-sweeping leg up early, like waaay before their sweeping leg hit it, you can see them start tip-toeing it if you watch it in slow motion. Does this come when you've mastered multiples? I'm not aiming for my form to be exactly like others, but I just want the general look of it.


here is the current state of my flare more or less lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXyUzlDuOCw. I just got lucky that I got to full round(kinda).
