Justin Bieber Wants Children To Dance Onstage At Purpose World Tour

Here’s How To Dance Onstage With Justin Bieber On His ‘Purpose’ Tour

Justin Bieber’s Purpose World Tour kicks off in just four days. Any children who fancy themselves as dancers now have an opportunity to get up onstage and dance with the Biebs during each show.

Why just kids? It’s because the onstage moment will take place during “Children,” a Skrillex-produced rave track which appears on the pop icon’s hugely successful, acclaimed Purpose album. Hence #PurposeTourChildren.

Four kids between the ages of 9-15 are invited to dance with Justin in a set routine to “Children” at each Purpose tour stop. The trek starts on March 9 in Seattle, Washington.

So, what do entrants have to do to be given a chance to dance it off with the Canadian superstar? As explained by Nick DeMoura, the tour’s creative director and choreographer, in a YouTube video posted to Bieber’s Kidrauhl account, there are rules in the dance contest.

1. A child can only submit once to be chosen.

2: Each applicant has to send in a video of themselves dancing in a sequence to “Children” with a little freestyle at the end. DeMoura says he’s looking for “high energy, clean dancing.”

3: Say your name, age, and which city you live in at some point during your video.

4: Also state why you want to be onstage with Justin during your clip.

5: The video has to be posted on YouTube before 9 a.m. on March 7

6: In the title of your video, add the hashtag #PurposeTourChildren then add your particular city. For example, Chicago or Boston.

7: Add your full name and a contact email in the description by your YouTube video upload.

Here’s an example of a fan’s submission. Note how it’s labeled.

On Friday, DeMoura, Bieber, and the dancers featured in the #PurposeTourChildren video tweeted the clip with messages inviting fans to send in their submissions. Initially, the age range for entrants was 9-13, but the pop star raised the bar to 15, most likely after a flood of complaints from teen fans on Twitter.

For weeks, pics, videos, and messages about the tour have been popping up online while the band and dancers rehearse.

Earlier in the week, media chased its own tail after a satire site claimed Bieber was planning on moving to Oregon. On Thursday, the local Register-Guard reported the singer was in Eugene, Oregon on Thursday to rehearse for his Purpose Tour at the Matthew Knight Arena.

The paper wrote, “Justin Bieber enthusiasts and security guards kept each other company on Thursday at the Inn at the 5th Thursday as fans stayed outside the hotel hoping to catch a glimpse of the 22-year-old pop star.”

“Bieber songs. ‘As long as you love me’ and ‘Sorry’ could be heard through the arena’s doors. According to one security guard outside the arena, Bieber’s crew had been at the arena Wednesday night until 4:30 a.m. Thursday,” the paper added.

The Biebs was also spotted at a local skate park in Springfield, Oregon on Friday.

Hours later, the superstar was spotted again in Eugene.

Back to the upcoming Purpose World Tour, if think you can learn the dance steps and impress Bieber on stage, submit your video. Good luck.
