Casting Call for Dance Groups to Perform at World of Dance Live as Opener

St. Petersburg, FLA (October 10, 2019) – Experience the reality of becoming a star. Local dancers and dance groups are encouraged to send in video submissions for a chance to open at the World of Dance Live show in St. Petersburg. World of Dance Live will be performing at the Duke Energy Center for the Arts – Mahaffey Theater on Sunday, November 3rd at 7:00pm. 

Video submissions should reference the St. Petersburg market for the November 3rd World of Dance show, and must be sent to talent@worldofdance.com no later than October 25th. 

The World of Dance Live Tour is a live interpretation of the TV show “World of Dance”, NBC’s hit dance competition series. The 12-episode series from Universal Television Alternative Studio and Nuyorican Productions gave numerous dancers the platform to showcase their talents and the opportunity to receive a life-altering grand prize of $1 million. The show was a primetime hit and its ratings soared, with record ratings in the United States as well as Canada.

The World of Dance was also prominently featured on the most recent international tour by Jennifer Lopez. The “It’s My Party” tour featured multiple dance troupes from the popular World of Dance show and sold out venues across the United States and Canada. This 31-market tour opened hearts and minds to the touring magic of World of Dance. 

World of Dance is the world’s largest dance entertainment enterprise. What began in 2008 as a single event is now a continent-spanning, tour de force of human spirit and sick dance moves, encompassing a #1 TV show, a #1 YouTube network, and three live worldwide tours.  The World of Dance Championship Series 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. The inspiring performance videos captured from these events have driven more than one billion views online. No language barriers. No animosity. Just pure, awe-inspiring movement.
