Girls dominate Port Harcourt audition of Glo-sponsored 'Dance with Peter'

The women folk fought back what had seemed like oppression from the men folk at the three-week long auditions of the dance reality TV show, Dance with Peter sponsored by Globacom, by winning the hearts of the judges in the quest for the available six tickets at the Port Harcourt audition of the show on Thursday night.

The Port Harcourt audition was the last in a series of auditions in four major Nigerian cities and the capital city of Ghana, Accra. All the previous auditions were dominated by the boys who dazzled the judges with their brilliance.

But at the Port Harcourt audition, the ladies put up a stiff resistance replicating nearly all the tricks up the sleeves of the boys.

The development was applauded by Dance star, Kaffy, who said the outcome would encourage more women to embrace dancing as a profession.

The Port Harcourt audition presented the last opportunity for those interested in participating at the show. Consequently, many of the contestants who narrowly missed securing qualifying tickets from the previously held auditions travelled to Port Harcourt to try their luck for the final time.

Contestants from Lagos particularly outshone their peers from other regions, including the host city. The Lagos boys and girls were the first to break the ice by securing the nod of the judges to go into the next round of the competition.

This development made the promoter of the show, Peter Okoye of Psquare to jump up from his seat in exasperation at some point. He walked to where the dancers were waiting for their turns to climb the stage, and charged the local contestants to raise their game.

“Port Harcourt, what is happening?  You are hosting this audition. Why are you breaking my heart by letting people who came all the way from Lagos to run away with the tickets? This region is richly talented. It’s just that you people are not taking it as seriously as those guys from Lagos have taken it,” he said as he urged them to put more pep into their performances.

Also at the audition was a talented group of dancers who said they were at the audition because they believed dance was the ticket to get their families out of grinding poverty.

Over 300 individuals and groups fought for the available six qualifying tickets from the Port Harcourt audition.
