===========================================================================================FurSTep is Furdu's very own version of Floor Wars, an "all-styles (freestyle) dance battle" event, where furries are pitted head-to-head against each other in an elimination style competition to see who can out-dance the other to a variety of different music.
This year, we will be featuring both non suit and fursuit dancers in 1vs1, allowing a glimpse of the amazing talent within the community that might be missed otherwise. With lots of energy, fun, and jaw-dropping moves to cheer for, you're guaranteed to have a great time watching the fandom's finest dancers battle for victory on the dance floor.
All competitors are bound by these rules. Violating the rules may result in disqualification from the event.
1. No touching your opponents.2. No interrupting other dancers’ sets (taking up floor space, interfering).3. DRINK plenty of water, stay hydrated. 3. No props allowed (other than clothing on you).4. No waiting out songs/requesting a song change.5. ARRIVE ON TIME AND READY TO BATTLE. NO EXCEPTIONS (at least 30 minutes before the event start time). If you are not here by 15 minutes before event start-time (e.g. 6:45 pm for a 7 pm start time), you WILL be replaced.6. We are NOT responsible for injuries/damaged equipment/clothing.7. HAVE FUN! (no salty feelings - we’re here to have a good time, regardless of the outcome. Cheer your friends on, and keep up the good vibes!)
Each dancer will get a maximum of 30 seconds to dance, then a dancer from the opposing side/team will dance, and dancers will alternate back & forth. If you’re confused, refer to Floor Wars videos from Anthrocon, Midwest Furfest, and Furry Weekend Atlanta (all found on YouTube).
