Past event

Lezarts Urbains and KVS are joining forces for a second time to organise the Festival Lezarts Danses Urbaines, a sample card of the rich landscape of urban dance in Belgium and beyond. All weekend long the festival presents a diverse range of creations, techniques and styles, from brief choreographed excerpts to fully produced shows, from amateur crews and dance acade- mies to up-and-coming artists and professional crews.

Battle Astral and Cypher from the Kwanzaa collective 

With DJ Serge from Wanted Groove Collectif and DJ Alex The Cage

The Kwanzaa collective is turning what you think you know about battles upside down! They came up with a new concept, which you will discover live during the festival. The battle is open to all dance styles, but you only dance to house and hip-hop music. Dancers compete one on one in technical tests and challenges. These are aimed at pushing them to the limit in terms of creativity and originality. This way they share their skills and techniques with each other and with the audience.

Another thing that makes the Kwanzaa concept stand out: the preselections take place in the form of a cypher, in which an anonymous jury is present, which selects the finalists. Anyone who wants to take part in the final has to give it all during the first part, without knowing who can send him or her to the final. The cypher is followed by a DJ set.
