We’re just over a week away until one of the hottest events of the year hits Stratford Circus Arts Centre – that’s right, it’s time for DGC16!
After a stellar sell out showcase back in May, DGC Dance are back once more with a showcase that’s bigger than ever, with over 70 dancers taking part. On Saturday 9th November, our students will debut everything they’ve learnt over the last few months in what is already shaping up to be a great showcase judging from the rehearsals.
If 2 and a half hours of pure K-Pop wasn’t enough to convince you to get a ticket right now (And I’d move soon, because they’re close to selling out!) then here’s some reasons you should come down and see the show.
Your favourite songs live
We’ll be bringing you the latest K-Pop tunes from the last year – artists TXT, Chung Ha, Ateez, Somi, BTS, Twice and more. You’ll get to see your favourite songs performed live, and you might even discover a new song you love!
The performers in DGC showcases put 110% of their energy into their dances, and the audience give their enthusiasm, singing and screams in return. There are no words to describe how electric, special and supportive the atmosphere is during a showcase – you’ll just have to find out for yourself.
To use your lightsticks
Got your Army Bomb lying around your house, waiting to be used? Are your Mondoongies and Ahgabongs collecting dust on a shelf? Bring it to the showcase and light up Stratford Circus Arts Centre with your lightsticks along with everyone else – it’s value for money on both your ticket price and your lightstick.
From leather harnesses and lace, to yellow neon and sticks as props, a DGC Dance Showcase is full of the most interesting and current fashion trends from the K-Pop scene. A lot of the outfits you’ll see are customised or hand-made by our dancers too – we’ve got a multi-talented bunch!
Wanting to film your own performances? Attending the dance show is a great way to get inspiration for any performances you may be doing. And while you’re at it, you can check out our YouTube channel for the music video covers we produce – some are already released for dances being performed at the showcase, so you have an idea of what is to come.
Cheaper than a real K-Pop concert
With an average ticket for a K-Pop concert being £100 nowadays, we think our tickets are a bargain. For £12 (in advance), you’re getting 16 more acts at 1/8th of the price. It would be rude not to, really!
See what DGC Dance is all about
If you’re new to the K-Pop dance scene and you’re not sure where to start, coming to our showcase is a great way to see what it’s all about and to get a feel of the kinds of songs we teach. To give you a hint though – it’s very varied, so there’s bound to be something for you.
To practice your fan-chants
A DGC showcase is the only place you’ll find fan-chants screamed so passionately other than at a group’s concert. Come to the showcase and practice them so you’re word perfect for the next time you see your favourite group in concert.
To meet like-minded people
Everyone there has one common interest – they either love K-Pop or they know someone who loves it. It’s a brilliant way to meet new people, discuss biases, and maybe start your own cover group!
We can think of 1001 more reasons you should come to our showcase, but hopefully these have convinced you enough to buy a ticket by clicking here. It’s set to be a special night, and we’d love to have you there.
See you soon!
