Red Bull Dance Your Style is a competition where the best Street Dancers from around the globe dance-off, eager to show their moves on stage. Red Bull has long been associated with various genres of dance. Clearly blessed with foresight, the popularity of dance has grown exponentially with dance events now taking place around the globe.

This is the first time a watch company has entered into the world of competitive street dance, upholding Maurice Lacroix’s reputation for being innovative. This latter trait is one of several characteristics the watch brand shares in common with Red Bull.

Stéphane Waser, Managing Director of Maurice Lacroix, is clearly enthusiastic about this new partnership. He remarks, “Teaming up with Red Bull and supporting a major event such as Red Bull Dance Your Style, provides us with an opportunity to convey our common values such as creativity and precision. We both speak to the same public: young, dynamic, passionate and urban individuals. We are delighted to be involved in this exciting competition and we look forward to seeing the best entrants master the beats and dazzle us with their moves!”
