‘World of Dance’ to host classes nationwide

World of Dance Master ClassesWorld of Dance, the newest and biggest dance competition show coming to television, will begin on Tuesday, May 30 on NBC. Produced by Jennifer Lopez, she is joined by fellow superstars Derek Hough and Ne-Yo to judge the best dancers from around the world as they compete for a one million dollar prize. Jenna Dewan Tatum will serve as host and mentor.


To get the dance community excited about the upcoming premiere, NBC is hosting master classes in 10 cities across the country from May 13—21. (See locations, dates and registration links below.) Hundreds of dancers are invited to participate in each exclusive event to celebrate their love of dance.


Local choreographers will lead the high-energy dance classes, and participants will learn a routine inspired by the city’s culture or studio. The choreographer will also teach the official World of Dance move being developed by Jennifer Lopez and the show.


At the end of the class, the room will open up for freestyle dance so everyone can show off their moves. The event will feature a sneak-peek of the show’s premiere and custom swag for participants to wear during the master class.


You don’t have to be a professional dancer to participate – you just have to love to dance! But pre-registration is a must. And if you’re under 18, you will need a guardian in attendance to sign a waiver.


Also, note that talent from the show will not be in attendance. This is a promotional event that is not affiliated with the casting of the show.


Participants should wear comfortable clothes and appropriate shoes that allow them to move. They should bring a towel and water to stay hydrated.
