<p>We want to bring house heads under the same roof again to enjoy beautiful music, dance and communal vibe within the ABYSS concept.</p>

<p>ABYSS</p>
<p>The format of the ABYSS offers a new perspective on producing house dance experiences, by focusing on and honoring the most essential elements of house dance culture: the human spirit and cypher participation. Through this competition, we hope to inspire a culture of honesty, integrity, self-discovery, and fearlessness, along every participant's journey to evolved artistry.</p>
<p><em>"Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”</em> -Brené Brown</p>

<p>PRE-SELECTION</p>
<p>The pre-selection round will consist of 1-on-1 showcases, with each participant getting one, un-timed run. Both dancers, one dancer, or neither dancer will advance. An Advisory Committee, made up of the event organizers and House Dance professionals, will choose at least 12 dancers to advance to the final cypher session.</p>
<p>THE FINAL CYPHER SESSION</p>
<p>The cypher session will be a one-hour cypher of uninterrupted exchanges between the chosen dozen from pre-selection.</p>
<p>JUDGING</p>
<p>The 12+ finalists will choose a winner amongst themselves. Each dancer will have one vote, but cannot vote for themself. The dancer with a majority of the votes will be the winner. Should there be a tie(s), those receiving the highest number of votes will be given a chance to concede to the dancer(s) that they believe is the winner.</p>
<p>If the dancers choose to continue, they will return to the cypher for an additional 30 minutes or the final exchange. During this final exchange, all dancers have the right to concede and proclaim the opponent(s) the winner. If no one concedes during or after the final exchange, the Advisory Committee will choose a winner from those remaining, based on technique, musicality, originality and artistry.</p>
<p>The Final Cypher Champion will win a trip to Washington DC for the ABYSS event there.<br><br>ABYSS is organized in collaboration with <a href="https://urbanartistry.org/">Urban Artistry</a>, <a href="https://sadefinland.com/">SADE ry</a> and <a href="https://kiasma.fi/en/festivals/urb22/">URB Festival</a>.<br><a href="https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/theabyss/">#theabyss</a> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/urbanartistry/">#urbanartistry</a> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/urb22/">#urb22</a> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/sadery/">#sadery</a>&nbsp;</p>
