Excerpt:

–Smashed Potatoes–

Where there are battles that happen to have a party afterwards, this will be a party that happens to have battles in the middle. This spirited dance battle will have participants paired up at random while taking shots between each round for $200 and a bottle of “something special.”

My fellow Knuckle Neck brother Mikey Disko and I will be your hosts for the evening.

Smashed Potatoes is happening on January 25, 2020 at the Blue Chip in San Jose.

TLDR Come for a good time, dance, take shots, and win stuff!

RULES:

This is a 2 on 2 battle where a pro dancer will be paired at random with a non-pro dancer. For this event, we’re defining a pro dancer as someone who has been paid to dance, is in a dance company, or regularly enters dance competitions. This means that a non-pro dancer can be anyone outside of those constraints.

There are 4 rounds. Competitors will be taking shots between rounds so you can expect the following battle format:

Prelims – Pro dancers will go out one at a time for a showcase.

Top 8 – Top 8 that are chosen will be paired with a non-pro dancer. The top 8 pairs then take a shot and proceed to a 2 v 2 battle.

Top 4 – The top 4 pairs take a shot and then proceed to a 2 v 2 battle.

Finals – The final 2 competitors take a shot and then proceed to a 2 v 2 battle.

Starting with the top 8 round, there will also be a prop that must be used at least once by each side. These will be announced the day of the battle.
