Shimmy Shake Factor CO
New Conditions Factor CO & The Next Level
ATTENTION FUSION DANCERS!
IMPORTANT: This year there are new conditions for the Shimmy Shake Talent Development projects. Together with our team of advisors we have decided that Factor CO from now on will become THE start-up moment for what happens in the rest of the year. ALL LEVELS should join in. At the conclusion of the coaching during the Talent Show on 15 May we will choose the four dance acts that will go on to do the Next Level. Factor CO is the one and only chance for you to enter a coaching program of Shimmy Shake.
The Shimmy Shake Factor CO selection days are open to all and will present beautiful and excitingly diverse dance acts – from ladies who dare to come and show themselves for the first time ever without wanting to go further, to our very best dancers who will inspire and encourage the starters with their dance. And therefore become eligible for the Next Level!
So if you have a fusion belly dance act to show us, don't hesitate any longer and register for Factor CO and start a new chapter in your dancing career!
And Happy News -You can still join up. Factor CO Talent Search registration for the Selection Days in Rotterdam and Sittard have been extended!
- Registration deadline for Rotterdam has been extended until 7 March 2016
- Registration deadline for Sittard has been extended until 28 March 2016
Factor CO is for all levels. It is not only fun to do but in the end you will learn so much and get to know so many fusion dancers! Read more about the experiences of other fusion dancers that have joined Factor CO at our news blog on our website.
