The world’s best street dancers will come together this Spring for the return of the premier one-on-one street dance competition: Red Bull Dance Your Style. For its 2022 season, Red Bull Dance Your Style will amplify dance scenes from all corners of the country, traveling to Tampa, Chicago, Washington D.C., Oakland, Atlanta and New Orleans to celebrate the diverse dance community and determine who will go on to represent the country at the Red Bull Dance Your Style World Final.
Kicking off on Thursday, April 7 from the iconic House of Blues in Boston, the all-styles dance competition will summon the region’s best dancers ranging from hip-hop, house, waacking, turfing, krumping, popping, and everything in between. Via bracket-style tournaments, dancers will battle one-on-one to a spontaneous music set of randomly selected genres while the audience votes to determine who advances onto the next round. With no panel of judges, no planned choreography, and no pre-chosen music, it’s all about embracing the moment, wowing the crowd and moving to the beat.
Last year’s winner, Angyil, explains that “while it is a competition, Red Bull Dance Your Style is, at its core, a celebration of dance, that gives artists a global stage to express their true selves and expose audiences to new styles of dance.”
The U.S. competition circuit will close with the Red Bull Dance Your Style National Finals USA in New Orleans, spanning a full weekend from Saturday, May 21 through Sunday, May 22. Creating a platform for education, connection and celebration, the weekend will offer a line-up of dance programming including select events, workshops, and performances with scenes from across the country. The weekend will conclude with the final dance battle, giving regional winners a final shot at advancing onto the Red Bull Dance Your Style World Finals by battling wildcards including Lily Frias,Nick Fury, Tyler D Creator and Toyin.
Following 130 events in over 30 countries all around the globe, dance’s heavy-hitters will come together to battle for the third-ever Red Bull Dance Your Style World Championship title.

Don’t Blink – The Exiles are Back in a New Series by Saladin Ahmed & Javier Rodriguez! The adventure begins this April!
New York, NY—January 3, 2018—A fan-favorite teleporting X-Man will make her return to the multiverse in 2018, along with a brand-new team!
Writer Saladin Ahmed topped several “Best of 2017” lists with Marvel’s Black Bolt, with EW calling the book “a delightfully fresh take on the superhero genre.” Now, Ahmed takes his talent for fresh storytelling to an old but beloved tale, joined by the art team of Javier Rodriguez (Spider-Woman), Alvaro Lopez, Jordie Bellaire and Joe Caramagna.
The man once known as Nick Fury is now simply the Unseen, who can only observe Earth from the moon. When a mysterious threat casts its shadow on the multiverse, his job is to recruit champions who can save it. Blink’s goal was once to save the world with the original EXILES, and now, she’ll need the help of Khan, Iron Lad, Wolvie and a mysterious to-be-revealed team member to help her fight an even more sinister evil.
“EXILES is a two-fisted, big-hearted wild ride of a book about a diverse team of alternate universe Marvel heroes banding together to stop a dire threat to the multiverse. Sort of WHAT IF? meets classic X-Men,” teases Ahmed. “Grizzled old Kamala Khan! Disgustingly cute cartoon Wolverine! It’s a dream of a book to be working on for a Marvel fanboy such as myself, full of deep-cut guest stars and mind-blowing easter eggs. But it’s also new-reader friendly — a self-contained story of a group of misfits coming together, learning to trust each other, and, if they’re lucky, saving the !@$# universe.”
Get ready for a wild ride of misfit fun and new adventures when EXILES returns to comic shops with a brand-new story this April!
