$39, $59 and $125 VIP Meet & Greet

World of Dance is the preeminent global dance brand, combining the world’s largest international urban dance competition with the largest digital platform for dance driving more than 30 million monthly views, and now the inspiration for the new television dance competition of the same name airing on NBC with Jennifer Lopez. What began in 2008 as a single event has become a continent-spanning, tour de force of human spirit and sick dance moves. The World of Dance Tour attracts YouTube stars, industry icons, and tens of thousands of fans to events in more than 25 countries, spanning the U.S., Europe, South America, and Asia. No animosity. Just pure, awe-inspiring movement.

CHARITY & ANDRES:

  • “Charity and Andres were an undiscovered pair from Utah who totally captured the judges hearts” – Ali Stagnitta
  • “Charity and Andres were also here to fight with their stunning routine filled with lifts and Andres making Charity look lighter than air. The judges were on their feet screaming at Charity and Andres’ self-choreographed flips and tricks.” – Ali Stagnitta
    Charity and Andres, however, received straight 100s from the judges giving them the first perfect score of the competition, and sending them to The Cuts! – Ali Stagnitta

MICHAEL DAMESKI:

  • “His Duels performance was set to “Hanging On” by Ellie Goulding, and “it was just a roller coaster of emotions.” But he received high marks from judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo (averaging 94.7 points), so now he’s moving on to the third round of the competition, The Cut.” – Daniel Montgomery, goldderby.com

BDASH & KONKRETE:

  • “BDash and Konkrete made it out of the “World of Dance” Qualifiers with a huge score, averaging 94.3 from the judges.” – Daniel Montgomery, goldderby.com “I’ve got to tell you, I was really nervous for you guys when you picked [Pasha and Daniella]. I tell everybody, storytelling is the most important thing when you’re performing. From beginning to end you never broke character, and it was so effective.” – Jennifer Lopez, NBC World of Dance / The Duels

THREE NEW ARTISTS added to the tour!

JAXON WILLARD:

  • Jaxon Willard brought the “World of Dance” judges to tears with this routine about this anger towards his birth mother.” – Daniel Montgomery
  • “I’m looking around at the crowd. You got people in here crying, brother,” judge Ne-Yo told Willard following his performance.
  • Lopez praised the elegance of Willard’s dancing and told him it was “an honor” to watch him perform.
  • Willard earned a combined score of 96 from the judges, beating out tap soloist Lucas Marinetto to advance to the show’s next round, the Cut.

EMBODIMENT:

  • “Embodiment just killed the game with that routine, bringing passion and strength in a way you almost never see. This contemporary group hit formations and created visuals like a hip-hop crew.” – www.toofab.com “Embodiment — which is from Los Angeles, and is run by by So You Think You Can Dance alum Rudy Abreu — is the first to take the stage, performing a contemporary routine set to “Pray” by Sam Smith. It’s a really sharp routine, made that much more stunning by the all-white outfits the guys (a team of 13 who range from 15 to 28 years old) are wearing set against the red-themed stained glass background.” – Carson Blackwelder
  • “It’s so beautiful to see a group of strong men be so vulnerable. It was moving to me. I thought it was a really clean, clear story, very impactful. I felt myself very emotionally moved at the end, and I almost didn’t know why,” Jennifer Lopez said.

ROYAL FLUX:

  • Upper Division Team under the leadership of Jaci Royal, this LA-based contemporary dance company was founded four years ago. The group sets out to be a game changer in the contemporary world of dance. They like to incorporate daring moves.
  • ‘World of Dance’ Duels returned this week and one of the performers achieved what had not yet been achieved this season… a perfect score! (The Show)
  • This time, injury-less and more confident, Royal Flux impressed with their lifts and creativity. As J. Lo said, I had goosies! “Innovation, creativity, creating things we haven’t seen before!”
