There's still time for Nottingham dancers to compete for the opportunity to perform in the Queen Elizabeth Hall at London's world famous Southbank centre in the new digital competition Dance Your City.

Entrants are invited to create a one minute dance piece in front of an iconic landmark in their city and confidentially, with the Robin Hood statue, the castle, the lions in the Market Square, Sky Mirror and the Brian Clough statue just for starters, Nottingham has plenty of iconic landmarks to choose from!

The winning group will perform as the opening act for the acclaimed Spanish choreographer, dancer and filmmaker Blanca Li, who has choreographed videos for Goldfrapp, Kanye West and Blur. Blanca will also be bringing her new street dance show Elektro Kif, which features an all-male cast and a mix of breakdancing, disco, vogue, popping and locking, to the Nottingham Playhouse on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 February.

***UPDATE February 3rd 2012***

Check out and vote for a new Nottingham entry for the Dance Your City competition! 'The Misfits' is by dance company NuProjeks, who aim to provide a ladder of opportunity for young people to develop their dance skills. This piece encourages individuals to explore improvisation in music and dance through characters of dance genres.
