The competition will culminates in an All-Stars Showcase at the Finals to be held in May that will give the opportunity for dancers, parents and the public to attend a concert lasting 2 hours featuring the best dance talent South Africa has to offer. Two prize levels coming out of this event include: first place (R40, 000plus HVP CHAMPIONSHIP Trophy) and second place (R10, 000).

Both these dance styles have grown every year and are now influencing different spheres of our lives. It is in this light that Kan Communications have teamed up with Club 10 to launch one of the most exciting dance competitions – HVP Dance Competition! We hope it will contribute immensely to the development of these two dance forms. We look forward to seeing various great crews with fresh moves at the HVP,” explains Kenna Mahlangu, founder and director of HVP Dance Competition.
