Could It Be You?

Calling all Street Dance Crews!

The all-new and improved Southsea Show needs willing Street Dance Crews to participate in the ultimate battle to be crowned ‘Southsea Shows Dance Crew 2013’!
On Saturday 3rd August at 4pm – 4:45pm there will be a live ‘Street Dance Crew Battle’ taking place in ‘The Big Top’ as part of the live entertainment for ‘The Southsea Show’. 

Filled with local and national talent, to thrill and entertain everyone, the winning crew will have the opportunity to perform their dance again in front of the crowds and share a stage with other brilliant performers such as; Chesney Hawkes, Danny Oliver as MJ and the magical Carl and Dave illusionists.

Each crew member will receive a FREE pass into the days event which promises to be a action packed weekend of family fun! The Tom Prince Cancer Trust Stage will feature the very best of local cover bands during both days and there will also be gardening demonstrations, competitions, community stalls, carousels, and bumper cars, as well as a petting zoo, sports activities, arts, crafts, and creative making workshops, a dog show, a cider bus, a milkshake wagon, and a whole host of food stalls. Visitors will have the opportunity to browse the wares of local traders whilst buskers provide entertainment in the Market Marquee.
After all the activities the two days will have to throw at you, you’ll want to relax in the Giant Tea Tent where baking demonstrations and workshops will be held, kids’ storytelling sessions will run, and traditional teas and cakes served up during performances from local singer-songwriters.

A Beer Tent and Real Ale Bar filled with folk, bluegrass, country, and roots music will be pitched up for the whole weekend, during which Carnival Costume workshops take place to prepare visitors for the participatory parade at 2:00pm on Sunday afternoon.

But before that you can win a chance to be part of the Saturday night Seaside Special, a good old-fashion ‘End of the Pier Show’ that will take visitors back to the best of the 1970s, offering up some classic family entertainment.

Throughout the Sunday, the fun continues, with a Grand Carnival Procession featuring the IoW New Carnival Company, who are known for their performance at the Paralympics. Also expect local carnival artists, bands, and participants in beautiful costumes created at the workshops, as well as a performance from the spectacular Cirque Bijou, who helped launch the 2012 Olympics and have toured with the likes of Take That.

If you think you’re crew has what it takes you will need to register with Manic Stage Productions ( then arrive at ‘The Big Top’ for 3:45pm and come prepared with a 5 minute (max) dance piece; this track will need to be sent over to us by Monday 29th July (please bring a backup just incase on CD or IPOD).

Remember as part of this fantastic event, every dancer taking part will get a free entry to ‘The Southsea Show’ and there is plenty of wonderful things to get involved with throughout the day! Please register by Friday 26th July via email and you will be sent an ‘entry form’ which we will need back along with your music by Monday 29th July.
We look forward to seeing what local talents have to offer!
