Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's post-touchdown pirouette or the passionate tango used to notify roommates that the basement is flooding. Read tidings of twinkling toes thanks to today’s Groupon: for $8, you get a weekend pass to the Artists Emerge Hip-Hop Dance Competition on March 18–19, in Edmonton and St. Albert (a $16 value for adult tickets, children's tickets are regularly $5 dollars).

Dance crews from all corners of Canada's national discotheque flock annually to Edmonton, called by the siren spins of the Artists Emerge National Hip-Hop Competition. Crews such as perennial winners the Fly Girlz will face off against old rivals White Chocolate and even older rivals, the Frolicking Whigs. This year, celebrity judges include the eminent feet of Boogaloo Sam, the inventor of popping, So You Think You Can Dance Poland/Ukraine/Scandinavia choreographer Gigi Torres, and Super Dave, whose credits include working with Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson, among others. All contestants are legally required to bring the noise, but events are organized by crew size and experience: Saturday, March 18 sees solo dances, duets, and small and large group crews at Arden Theatre in St. Albert, while the Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton hosts extra large groups, pro-crews, and the final showdown on the 19th. Parking at the Jubilee costs $5 during scheduled performances, and the Arden provides a map with select areas of free parking.
