THE  YC
VIRTUAL SOLO CHALLENGE 

MARCH 1-8, 2021

THE YC VIRTUAL SOLO CHALLENGE

Get ready for our YC virtual solo challenge! As a YC soloist, you will have to choreograph your own dance, film it, and submit it to our team. Our mentors will review your submission and provide feedback and tips to improve your choreography.

After receiving feedback from mentors, you will have to apply the feedback to your solo and submit an updated video to us. After all soloists have submitted their final videos, our judges will score each dance and choose 15 choreographers to move on the finals. The finalists will have to submit a video explaining what their piece is about, what they would do with the prize money and what they learned from their mentor. 

The top 3 choreographers in each age division will be announced along with the top 3 overall choreographers. There will also be a social media/audience vote winner announced. We will be awarding $750 to First Place Overall, $250 to Second Place Overall and $150 to Third Place Overall.
