The Battle of the Dance Lines continues its legacy by hosting the 6th Annual Battle of the Dance Lines Competition on Sunday, November 11, 2012 at the Georgia World Congress Center’s Sidney Marcus Auditorium.
Presented by Dazz With Jazz Dance Studio (DWJ), this event showcases the talent of young ladies throughout the city of Atlanta and the state of Georgia. Dance lines also travel from neighboring states to include Mississippi, and Alabama to attend this one of kind dance competition.
The BODL Competition features dance lines that compete for awards such as best choreography, best costumes, and best overall performance. This experience leads to scholarships from BODL and many historically black colleges and universities who support the competition.
This year, a Junior BODL Competition will kick-off the festivities featuring dancers ages 5 to 13 years old. The Junior competition allows younger dance students from studios and other dance organizations to participate in this competition as well.
Recognizing the importance of exposing youth to all forms of dance, a praise team competitive category has been introduced to this year’s competition. Praise teams from the faith-based community are encouraged to register and compete.
A dance line competition would not be authentic without a drum line performing so this year guests will be energized by the BODL Drum Line Competition scheduled to take place on the same day.
Mrs. Kim Coln is the Founder/Director of the BODL Competition and the Dazz With Jazz Dance Studio.
She believes events like BODL help young ladies to not only nurture their talents but exposes them to colleges and universities who sponsor such events. Through BODL senior dancers are also able to compete for college scholarships by meeting particular requirements.
