Directed by Jennifer Weber (The Hip Hop Nutcracker, BRING IT LIVE!), the show will kick off a 20-city National Tour this summer which includes New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) on Friday August 18 at 8pm.
#FOLLOWME is an electrifying live dance show celebrating the hip-hop dance community – inspiring dancers to step into the spotlight, and get the incredible opportunity to see, dance, and interact with their YouTube dance idols. Each of the headliners will have moments throughout the show to highlight their singular style and performance skills, incorporating their greatest hits with never before seen dances and songs.
Featuring cutting edge technology, fans will get to interact digitally and physically with the headliners prior to and during the show, with the ultimate prize being a featured position in #FOLLOWME’s explosive dance finale. The choreography for the finale will be released over social media for audience members to learn ahead of time, and select lucky fans will be chosen from video submissions to get the opportunity of a lifetime – to dance with their idols on stage.
