Following sell out success from its inception in March 2009, Live Vibe will move from the Lilian Baylis studio to the Peacock Theatre for an evening of dance with an emphasis on the hip hop genre, tied together with the theme of ‘Elements.’
At previous Live Vibe shows, four community groups performed alongside professional dance companies at the Lilian Baylis studio to impress the judges with their routines, using the elements of Earth, Wind, Fire and Water as inspiration.
The finalists so far include Re-Creation UK (Earth), D-Youngaz (Wind), Avant Garde Youth (Fire), with the finalist for Water to be announced on 12 June.
Live Vibe, hosted by Hakeem ‘Mr Impact’ Onibudo and Annaliese Dayes, combines live entertainment with audience interaction: the final will feature hip hop poet Duane Flames and band, plus the internationally acclaimed FLOetic Lara, along with interactive audience games.
