Registration is now open for "Rejoice Winston-Salem," a non-denominational liturgical and spiritual dance competition Oct. 14 that is sponsored by the city and open to faith-based and other organizations such as dance studios based inside the city limits.
Entries are being accepted for solo dancers, for groups up to eight dancers ages 12-17, and for groups up to eight dancers ages 18 and up. Entry fees are $50 for solo dancers and $75 for groups.
The competition is open to amateur dancers only. A total of 24 entries will be accepted and only one entry per organization is allowed. The winning solo dancer will receive $150 and the group winners will each receive $300.
The deadline for entering is Sept. 29. Complete rules, the registration form and more information is posted at RejoiceWinstonSalem.com.
The dance competition is an initiative of Council Member Denise D. Adams. "Liturgical dance is an art form of praise," Adams said. "Over the past decade its popularity has grown across many denominations. It's only natural that this dance form be given the opportunity to showcase the passionate talents of many. Come join us as we support and share with the community another creative expression from the 'City of Arts and Innovation.'"
