“Club10 is a brand that is proudly South African and the fastest growing Tavern brand in the country.  Not only do we want our 500 (and counting) members to be proud of the Club10Tavern brand they are associated with because of the value we bring to their business, we want to engage with their patrons by giving back to the communities these taverns are entrenched in.  Providing platforms like the HvP Competition where South Africans can showcase their talents and perhaps getting their first big break doing what they are passionate about, is one of the ways we’re achieving this. What better way to celebrate talent! It is in this light that we’ve partnered with brands like Amstel, Hunters Edge, Johnnie Walker, Tovaritch and Vodacom who want to celebrate what South Africans are passionate about.  Teaming up with Kan Communications who are managing the project, this is an exciting dance competition we all are proud to be part of” says Elaine Bodha (Brand Manager – Club10).

“Hip Hop & Pantsula dance has been part of our lives for many years and have survived the various influences that have taken over its music. Both these dance styles have grown every year and are now influencing different spheres of our lives. We hope it will contribute immensely to the development of these two dance forms. We look forward to seeing various great crews with fresh moves at the HVP finale,” explains Kenna Mahlangu (co-founder of Kan Communications and Creative Director of Club10HVP Dance Competition).
