For the first time in the history of FELABRATION, a dance competition, the AFROBICS DANCE COMPETITION will be introduced this year. It is an Afrobeat dance contest where contestants are required to dance to their own choice of FELA’S music. The first round of the competition is made up of 34 contestants who scaled through the rigors of the online registration on www.felabration.net
The first round of the competition comes up on Saturday September 9, 2017, at the New Afrika Shrine, Ikeja, Lagos. Time is 5pm promptly. A panel of distinguished judges will select the best of these participants for the next round slated for September 16, 2017, at the same venue and time of the day. The final round comes up on September 23, 2017.
The winner and the two runner-ups, will be rewarded with performances at the FELABRATION 2017, holding between Monday October 9-Sunday October 15, this year, in Lagos.
In the interim, Segun Adefila founder of the dance drama group Crown Troupe and Adedayo Liadi of Ijodee fame, are two of the expected judges. Kaffy the National Dance Queen has also indicated interest to be a judge at the event.
