DANCE DIVA PAGEANT
Welcome to the Dance Diva Project, a female dance competition that aims to empower and inspire dancers to make a positive impact on their communities. Our pageant is dedicated to promoting and celebrating strong and talented female dancers in our community. Through our event, we offer support and recognition for the hard work and dedication of these women.
Our mission goes beyond dance, as we strive to change the narrative around women in the performing arts industry. By showcasing the strength, creativity, and determination of our participants, we aim to challenge the stereotypes and biases that have long been associated with female performers. Our ultimate goal is to empower these women to see themselves as valuable and important members of the community, capable of making a difference through their artistry and leadership.
The Pageant Stages
The Diva will be selected at the end on three rounds
Show the audience your dance moves and own that stage! This is a Solo round; contestants will be expected to present a dance routine that is 3 mins max. In any dance style or genre.
Present a project you would like to use your dance to promote. 💪🌟 Our Dance Diva will be expected to use her dancing to promote a cause or develop a project. In this round, the contestants will present a short speech on what they would like to work on, if they emerge as winner. This presentation can be in any language, but if the contestant is using anything other than English, she would have to come with a translator.
The contestants will present a dance performance that depicts the project or cause she is presented in round 2. This performance can have other dancers and props with her on stage (but she must be the point and/or star of the performance) This round should not be longer than 7 mins.
