*** That's House: True School Jam Session and Battle ***

Before you get upset… The term “That’s House” is not a statement about authenticity or an off remark about your brand of House Music. It is, however, a reference to the traditions of self-expression, diversity, tolerance and forward thinking that many of us have found in House Music Culture.

The Music

Werk Ethic celebrates house and techno from the 80s and 90s. U Street Music Hall residents Ken Lazee and Nick Garcia will spin a mix of deep house, jackin’ house, garage, Detroit techno, and acid records that defined the early years of electronic dance music. Trust the DJs will bring the heat.

Movement

Since the term Warehouse Music was first used, many communities have embraced house music and celebrated with movement what they felt complimented the music or served their purpose, be it some professional endeavor, competitive spirit or simply dancing with friends. Thanks to these pioneers, today we have House Dance, Chicago Footwork, The Hustle, Jit, Vogue, Waacking, Juke, Pantsula … just to name a few popular forms. In this competition these styles, as well as others are accepted… That’s House.

The Format

The battle will begin with a preliminary round, in which each participant will showcase one (1) minute for the judges; eight (8) dancers will be chosen to advance to the 1 vs 1 quarter final rounds.

Each final round exchange will consist of three (3) one (1) minute rounds per person. The winner will proceed, eliminating their fellow artist from competition, until one person is declared the winner.

Judges

Three (3) surprise guest judges will choose a winner based on musicality, technical execution and exchange etiquette.
