What has life been like since appearing on NBC’s World of Dance?
Amazing! We have bonded together as a team and have gained more confidence and opportunities from appearing on the show.
What have been some of the biggest changes/opportunities that have happened?
We have performed for WOD Live, WOD Finals, WOD City Walk, Live Justice Show. We are Radix Nationals Senior Group Champions, 2018. We’ve received modeling opportunities for Athleta, 5 Dancewear, and more. Plus two of our members competed on World of Dance Season 3!
What is your best memory being on the show?
That moment of validation when the judges loved our “Scars To Your Beautiful” routine. It meant to us that our message was heard and our talent was visible. We were so happy it brought us to tears!
Would you ever consider competing on NBC’s World of Dance again?
Of course! It was the best experience ever!
What have you been up to since you appeared on the show?
We are all continuing our weekly training in as many styles and techniques as we can. We are young dancers in high school, so planning our next steps towards our future goals is important to us. We are currently competing regionally and nationally with our studio.

What are your future plans/goals?
We all have different goals for our future. Some of us want to be commercial dancers, some of us company dancers, and some of us both! Some of us want to go straight to a college dance program and others of us want to jump right into auditioning. We are all such different dancers with different strengths. Dancing together has helped us grow so much because of the different strengths we all bring to the table.

Keep your focus on your dreams and don’t ever let doubt creep in. Having the
courage and confidence to achieve your goals is half the battle. The rest is work work
