World of Dance continues to bridge the music and dance industries together with WOD DV – A Dance Visual Competition. This time the online global competition featured an uptempo track by artist MK xyz called “Geaux.” Over 25 countries participated with over 250+ submissions, generating over 2,000,000 plays for this emerging artist.
The online competition is judged in the same fashion as A WOD live event, olympic style with a jury of 5 judges. What makes WOD DV stand apart from other dance competitions is that submissions are judged on two criteria, Dance and Video Production.
“Unlike our live events, participating in WOD DV does not mean that the best dancer will take the prize… ” says World of Dance president and founder David Gonzalez. This competition is designed to acknowledge the best video submissions taking into account 50 points associated with dance criteria and 50 points associated to video production criteria.
WOD DV was created to help dancers fine tune their online presentation, but in a fun and competitive way. It’s not just about winning. Every submission is provided valuable judges feedback on how to improve their online presentation. Aside $3000.00 in cash prizes distributed amongst winners in Solo, Duo and Crew Divisions, there are specialty awards including Best Cinematography, Best Music Remix, Best Costume & Attire, Best Choreography, Best Concept, and Best Edit & Effects. More importantly, winning videos are promoted across the World of Dance social networks consisting of over 20 million following, giving dancers additional exposure as they continue to develop their craft.
