MTV Burlesque Dance Contest & Movie Trailer

by Migdalia Rivera

Christina Aquilera and Cher (love them both!) have teamed up with a few other well known actors to create Burlesque, a musical romantic movie set in Los Angeles.

The movie, which is not yet rated, is set to open nationwide on November 24, 2010; however, to celebrate the opening of  Burlesque, Sony Pictures, MTV and Z100 are looking for the best dancers in New York City!

The winner of the New York MTV Burlesque Dance contest will win $300 and VIP seating at the advance screening of BURLESQUE for them and 10 friends. They will also have a chance at the $5,000 national grand prize and may get their performance featured on MTV! 

The contest is open to dancers between the ages of 13-30. Below I have noted the contest date and time.

I copied and pasted rules and judging details below.
