About World of Dance
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 30 countries, spanning the U.S., Europe, South America, and Asia. No animosity. Just pure, awe-inspiring movement. World-renown dancer and two-time Emmy Award winner Derek Hough, as well as Grammy Award-winning singer NE-YO, joined Jennifer Lopez at the judges table for the unparalleled World of Dance competition series, hosted by Jenna Dewan Tatum. In partnership with NBC, Universal Television Alternative Studios and Nuyorican Productions, the 10-episode series brought the world's elite dancers together to compete in epic battles of artistry, precision and athleticism for a life-altering grand prize of $1 million.
