As Seen On ABC's "Shark Tank" EmazingLights Presents IGC 2015 - The 5th Annual International Gloving Championship
Saturday, Oct. 10, 2015 Lights Are The Main Event Featuring Special Headlining DJ Bear Grillz At the Historic Yost Theatre in Santa Ana, CA
ANAHEIM, CA Sept. 1, 2015 -- The gloving world has reached new heights this year, gaining national exposure on ABC's Shark Tank in the Spring and closing its books on the first national BOSS Gloving Competition season this fall. The International Gloving Championship is the single largest gathering of glovers and light show artists of the year, putting our regional competition winners in the spotlight for our main event, the Legends Tournament.
After the current reigning champion Ice Kream Teddy took home the first Legends title last year, the famed 16-man single elimination tournament is making its second run with even more rivalries between gloving crews, regions and sponsored glovers alike. Winners from previous IGCs Ice Kream Teddy, Thumper and Munch will face off against this years regional winners, Rhapsode (Huntington Beach, CA), Vex (Lithia, FL), Machine (Houston, TX), Pilgrim (Frenchtown, NJ), Jest (Stillwater, MN) and Cypher (Fullerton, CA). There will also be 5 Legends voted in by the fans, and 2 Legends who will qualify from the afternoon's 64-man Open Tournament brackets. The winning Legend will take home fame, bragging rights, $1000 cash and more prizes.
Special performances include a headlining DJ set from the biggest partying bear in EDM, Bear Grillz. On top of that we're bringing out one of today's top dancers and one of gloving's fondest admirers, World of Dance hostess Dytto. Plus a showcase from a favorite in the fingerstyles dance community, flying in from Pennsylvania Animated J.
IGC celebrates more than just glove lights, featuring a partner LED hula hoop performance by Hooptown Hotties' Miss Mojangles and PixieTails sponsored hooper Jenn Ranalli, and a special glow poi and glowsticking performance by Jaimison Salazar.

What is Gloving?
Gloving is a rising dance form of the hands, using colorful LED strobe lights inside gloves to bring the movements of the fingers to life. It strikes a balance between dance, art and sport, allowing for a diverse and talented community to flourish both inside and out of the Electronic Dance Music scene.
