With the date just confirmed and announced, the International Gloving Competition kicks off on October 10, 2015 at the Yost Theatre in Santa Ana, California. This year, a record number of out of state competitors and spectators will descend onto gloving’s largest tournament, producing a community wide sharing of concepts as the top glovers from around the country assemble to compete and hopefully take home the title. Representing teams and families from across the country, competitors will trade shows with their idols, cultivate friendships with fellow glovers, and perhaps, witness the coming out party for gloving’s next top talent. IGC is a celebration of gloving’s progress as an artform, and the moves seen in this year’s competition will reflect the evolution of dance in 2015.
With the Legends bracket nearly filled with this year’s Boss winners, challengers, who have worked day and night to hone their craft, will look to make a name for themselves in the Open tournament before earning a chance to compete against gloving’s best. Glovers will have the opportunity to meet friends from the Glovers Lounge and trade shows with counterparts from rival families. With gloving’s largest hotbed under one roof, spectators will witness a variety of styles as gloving comes together in the community’s largest think tank. This year’s IGC will feature a number of gloving specific attractions for spectators and competitors, and the MC for the night, although a secret for now, will undoubtedly be a legendary figure of the gloving community. With October 10 fast approaching, be sure to make travel arrangements and check back for the ticket release date. Don’t miss out on gloving’s biggest day!
