Several major players in the world of hip-hop dance will be participating.

On Wednesday afternoon, Red Bull announced the return of its Dance Your Style competitions. The series’ 2019 debut hosted auditions in Washington, D.C., Miami, Boston, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.

Seventeen-year-old Netherlands native Shinshan won the inaugural competition. The company expressed its excitement for this year’s edition through a statement:

“Bringing together the best dancers in the U.S. across hip-hop, popping, waacking, locking, krumping, house, and flexing, Dance Your Style celebrates freedom of expression through dance and provides street dancers a new platform to showcase their individuality and creativity.”
