The Battle of the Giants is already making an impact at Sun City Resort, with fans, followers and fantastic dancers lining up to get a piece of the action. For many aspiring dancers on the continent, the Battle of the Giants is their opportunity to showcase what they can deliver. It’s also their one chance to get noticed on an international scale, with the competition being a preliminary for an international contest.

For those who are new to Battle of the Giants, it’s an all-star arrangement of incredible dancers, each versed in their own discipline. Being an all-styles event means that any and all disciplines are accepted. One can expect anything from Ballroom to Hip-hop, from Latin to Jazz. Dancers from the age of 7 can compete and they do! Some of the younger classes show incredible talent, determination and passion for dance. It truly is an inspiring event to be a part of.
