Founded in Cerritos, California in 2008, the World of Dance Tour has become the largest urban street dance competition franchise worldwide. WOD has installments held in over 14 locations in the United States alone, and in over 20 countries worldwide. 2017 marked the first year of the finals being televised on NBC, the network that brought you The Voice and America’s Got Talent, with the help of Executive Producer Jennifer Lopez.
With last year’s champions, Nitrous Image Crew for Upper Division and Sayawatha for Youth Division, World of Dance Manila has continued to highlight the essence of Filipino talent in the local dance community.
