The contestants clearly understood the assignment because as Judge Pinky Debbie said, they were not “just looking for exciting dance steps”. To win, the contestants must go the extra mile to show versatility, be entertaining, have mad skills and be full of energy.
The judges got what they were looking for as they travelled across the six venues for the qualifying and elimination rounds. Unlike with break dancing, the first episode of the Afro dance stage was a no-holds-barred and thrilling episode with dancers going the extra mile to make the cut.
In Abuja, Angel brought her celestial dance steps to make mince-meat of her competition leading one of the judges to note that “Angel came on stage and blessed us with her moves.” Angel was not the only female to show that when it comes to Afro dance, there are no female or male dancers, just dancers, period.
