 At the Historic Yost Theater in Santa Ana, CA Saturday, September 7, 2013

LOS ANGELES, CA – July 24, 2013 – Who’s the best Glover on the planet?  EmazingLights will answer that question as hundreds of Glovers compete for that title at the 2013 International Gloving Championship: Lights are the Main Event on Saturday, September 7, 2013 at the historic Yost Theater in Santa Ana, CA.  “Tutting,” “morphing,” “conjuring,” and other smooth moves will abound as Glovers from near and far battle head to head to see if they have what it takes to be crowned the best competitive Glover on earth.  The latest twist on light shows, an old rave tradition, Gloving is a dynamic new dance art form that first emerged in 2006 at an electronic music event.  Opening ceremony starts at 1:00pm.  After party starts at 10:00pm.  Spectator tickets are $10 to $15 (depending on time of purchase) and can be secured in advance at http://gloving.com/events/boss/details/id/23.  Competitor tickets start at $15.  Special VIP competitor packages are also available.  The competition is an all ages event.  IGC’s after party (included with all ticket purchases) is 18 and over.  The Yost Theater is located at 307 N. Spurgeon St., Santa Ana, CA 92701 (http://www.yosttheater.com/; 888-862-9573).  For more information, please see the Facebook event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/594239570597420/ and the official IGC site at http://gloving.com.

“IGC is an annual celebration full of creativity and passion that brings light artists, their friends, and fans together as a family,” says EmazingLights-iHeartRaves Founder Brian Lim, “The competitive aspect of the event also serves to really push forward the art form – it’s exciting to see the new skills and innovative moves the competing Glovers bring each year!”
