Step on Trend

Take part in our competition. Come up with the best new dance move!

Have you tried the Floss, the Money Dance or Running Man? Can you come up with the next Shoot or Toosie Slide?

If you’ve got what it takes to come up with the next viral dance move then take part in Step on Trend, our online competition to find the next dance craze.

Your move should be short, simple, repeatable like the examples below, and completely original!

Backpack Kid AKA Russell Horning is known for his move – The Floss – which was learnt by millions and went viral in 2017. The floss even featured in films and video games.

The competition opens on Monday 01 June, and our judges will be choosing their favourite entries and coming up with a move of their own:

Natasha Britton from Parable Dance

Kloe Dean, founder of Myself Dance

Emma Houston aka B Girl Shortbread

Yami ‘Rowdy’ Lofvenberg

We will also be holding a people’s choice competition- giving you the opportunity to vote for your favourite entry.

Winners will each receive a £25 JD Sports Voucher, a Step into Dance T shirt, and the chance to perform your move at our 2021 Battle event.

How do I get involved?

  • Come up with your own original dance move, this should be simple and short. We recommend that it’s no more than four counts.
  • It should be completely your own move – don’t copy what’s already out there
  • Film yourself performing your move and repeat it ideally 4 times
  • Upload your film onto Instagram tagging @stepintodance and #SteponTrend
  • If you don’t have an Instagram account, or your account is private, please email your entry to stepintodance@rad.org.uk attaching a completed parent/ guardian permission form
  • Make sure you are sharing it on your grid, NOT your story, so it doesn’t disappear
  • If your move is chosen by the judge’s as a favourite we will ask you to send us the video with a parent/guardian’s permission so we can share your creativity far and wide
  • Entries will close on Tuesday 4 August.

Who can take part?

  • Anyone can enter a move for Step on Trend and be highlighted as a judge’s favourite
  • There will be two overall winners: Judges Choice and People’s Choice, who will each win a £25 JD Sports Voucher, a Step into Dance T shirt, and an invitation to perform your move at our 2021 Battle event.
  • To be eligible for one of the main prizes, you must be aged 11-25 and from London or Essex.
