WHAT IS CraZy BiG ApPle Contest? 
Get in it ....Learn New Jazz Steps or Simply Show Off.   Developed in the 1930's this dance is lead by a Caller who calls out what Jazz Step to do next!   No partner needed, just keep jamming the step until the next  one is called. Cheating by copying others is totally encouraged.  Steps will be demo-ed beforehand 'cuz we want EVERYONE in it! .   So....HEROES on one side, VILLAINS on the other and let's go at it!   Pre-lim Round:  Everyone on the floor with 5 people moved to final round.  Most entertaining Big Apple moves can win. Audience picks winner.  

WHAT TO WEAR?   
Can't wait to see what people do with their photo op!   You can be anything.   Keep it simple or go crazy.  Links for costume ideas below  OR put on that winning or dastardly smile  and bring your hero self or villain self ( hee hee) .
