Shuddup N Dance 2018 is Bigger, Better, and Brighter!

Pumped up the adrenaline! Brandish your true colours at Shuddup N Dance (SND) 2018. I’m sure some of you knew that last year we were at the SND competition, so this year SND will be setting up its stage at Klang Parade on two weekends, 18th & 19th Aug and 25th & 26th Aug. Can’t wait to see street dancers from around the Klang Valley and beyond compete once more to see who reigns supreme on the stage. It’s definitely going to be Bigger, Better, and Brighter!

Well, SND is celebrating its 5th year in existence with a new logo and refreshes it’s format. There are slight changes, previously the SND competition had only 2 distinct categories, “Group” and “Solo”. So this year 2018, SND breaks down its “Solo” category further to incorporate specialized categories such as Locking, Under-18, Krump, and Gurl Power.

For those who wish to participate in SDN or support your friends or see them dancing please head over to Shuddup N Dance 2018 event page on Facebook



One rationale for this is for judges to maintain fairness and objectivity when judging participants, especially considering there are many subgenres that exist under the street dancing label, and ultimately, judges would want to make a fair apple-to-apple comparison when they’re making their assessments.



“We’re always upping the ante for each new incarnation of Shuddup N Dance,” comments returning judge Danny Lee, leader of the Rejuvenate Dance Crew. “The teams that come back each year keep getting better and better, and we as the judges would now have to scrutinise every detail of their performance, from their chosen choreography to the precision of their technique.”

The qualifiers will happen on the first weekend of 18 and 19 August, where the Top 3 winners from the Street Dance Crew Showcase on Sunday will then move on to compete against the other winners from Ipoh Parade and CITTA Mall along with international crews on 26th August.

SND began as a platform for young local dancers to showcase their talents on stage 

SND began as a platform for young local dancers to showcase their talents on stage while debunking the myth that street dancing was only limited to high school dropouts and delinquents. 

The competition has since grown beyond those boundaries to include international participation from countries such as Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, and the United States, while winners of SND have been elevated to become ambassadors of the competition as they continue to promote dancing as a fun way to remain physically active.

This is your chance and challenge! If you wish to unleash your dance talent and show it to the world, why wait! Just do it because it’s your opportunity to shine at Shuddup N Dance 2018.
