learn more about dancin dynamites

The Dancin’ Dynamites Competition which started in 2006 spans a period of three and a half (3 1/2) months allowing for a 14 week promotion. Twelve (12) dance groups are selected from an island-wide search and weekly dancers present their routines on television.

The show which attracts an audience of over one million viewers in Jamaica is aired on Sundays 8-9 pm and repeated on Tuesdays at 10:00 am and Thursdays at 5:30 pm on TVJ.

Viewers vote weekly for their favourite Dynamites. Weekly, the dance group with the lowest votes is eliminated from the show.

One of the objectives of the show is to widen Jamaica’s appreciation of different cultures and different dances. As such each week dancers randomly select a genre and are given one week to prepare their dance for television. Edna Manley School of Dance and Excelsior Community College provide specialists for dancers who may find any genre difficult to execute.

The entire promotion runs from December to May allowing for major branding and presence.

There will be:

  • 4 Auditions

  • 4 Eliminations/Stage Shows

  • 6 Road Shows

  • 10 Studio Shows are held at Jamaica College, Old Hope Road, Kingston

The judges will select 40 dance groups from 4 road shows nationally.

12 finalists will compete in studio for over 2 million in cash and prizes.
