Dance with Peter kicks off in Abuja

There has been much buzz about the planned Dance with Peter reality show, and as audition is scheduled to begin on August 28, in the Federal Capital Territory, there is no doubt that skilled dancers and fans of Peter Okoye, one-half of the PSquare group in whose name the show is patterned, will storm the venue en masse.

Touted as the Africa’s hottest dance Reality TV show, Dance with Peter is packaged by Peter, and sponsored by telecommunication company, Globacom.

The Abuja audition is scheduled to hold at the Shehu Musa Yar’adua Centre, Central Business District. The second leg of the auditions, according to organizers, will take place in Accra, Ghana, at the National Theatre, South Liberia Road, on Tuesday, September 1.

“This will be followed by Benin, Edo State, on Friday, September 4, at the Oba Akenzua Cultural Center, Airport Road, Benin City. Lagos is next in line on for the audition on Tuesday, September 8, at Bamako Studios, 1 Bamako Street, Ojodu, Lagos.

“The final audition for “Dance with Peter” will be held in Port Harcourt on Thursday, September 10, where prospective dancers in the show will be auditioned at the Atrium Event Centre, Stadium Road,” Globacom said in a statement.

According to the company, “those who want to participate in the show can register by sending ‘DANCE’ to the short code 55517 in Nigeria and 3030 in Ghana through their Glo lines.”

It adds that “Registration costs N100 for Nigeria and 0.5GHc for Ghana. “Once they send the SMS to the short code, they will then be requested to send their details such as Name and Location at no extra charge. All successful registrations will get a confirmatory SMS with instructions on what to do next.”

The show promises a mouth-watering prize of brand new Toyota RAV 4 with N3million for the best dancer, including the rare opportunity of featuring in P-Square’s next music video.

Organisers say the first and second runners-up will receive a brand new Honda Civic car, N2million and a brand new Kia Rio car with N1million respectively. They too will have the chance to feature in a top Glo Ambassador’s music videos.

Supporting Peter on the show are dance experts such as Peter, Kaffy and Flex who will feature in the show as judges, while Ehis Okoegule of MTV Base will be the host.
