July 19 (Sat) 11:45am @ Pagoda Stage, Japantown
J-POP SUMMIT Festival 2014 is very excited to announce a new dance contest!
About the contest:
This contest is based on the Japanese internet dance phenomenon that could be found under the video category “ODOTTEMITA,” where dancers (and amateurs) film themselves dancing to popular Japanese dance choreography of idols, groups and Vocaloid music. The videos are then uploaded onto video hosts for public view. “ODOTTEMITA,” literary means “I tried dancing it,” and now for the dancers outside of Japan, the “Danced_It” video category is also used. Checkout the phenomenon on Tumblr HERE
Based on this method, contestants may film themselves dancing to a popular Japanese song with existing choreography, and all submissions are taken in as uploaded online video format. The videos will be hosted in a tab of J-POP SUMMIT Festival FACEBOOK page. Here, all viewers could watch the videos, interact, and follow the submission updates. The chosen finalists will come to compete on main stage at the J-POP SUMMIT Festival 2014. This year’s judges will decide who will take home the grand prize!
