London juke/ballroom/booty/ghetto themed night House Of Trax are throwing a party this weekend on June 3rd, and this time around they are stepping things up a gear by putting on a dance competition. Part of the club nights inspiration was the vibrant dress and exuberant moves of the participants on shows like The New Dance Show in the ’80s, and House Of Trax are looking to bring some of that playful competitiveness and dressed up strutting spirit to London. To give us an idea of the kind of thing that has inspired the competition, they’ve put together a list of their favourite clips of people dancing.
