The first dance challenge for the teams will be to pick up the dance form, Jazz, and compete on stage
The premiere episode of 'Come Dance With Me' aired on April 15, on CBS, and what an absolute sight it was! The super new reality dance competition surely has a unique mix of talented kids acing a variety of dance forms. So what lies in store for the dance teams next week?
The preview clip at the fag end of the premiere episode showcased a new dance challenge; teams step out of their comfort zones to Jazz things up a little! Will this new dance form be a cup of tea for all or more of a challenge?
Be it ballet, hip hop, freestyle, or contemporary, each kid of the 11 dance teams has not just had their dance training started at a very young age but has also seemed to master their respective fortes.
Having said that, Jazz, a form of dance that may be a stranger to some, combines both African and European dance styles. What makes this style stand a class apart from most common dance forms is its lively vibe, coupled with improvisation that's a key aspect of the choreography.
So far, we know that the contestants on the show, Kennedy Rae Thompson and Avery Khoundara are trained Jazz dancers. Hence, it goes without saying that they have a leg up on this round of the show, and why wouldn't they? In Kennedy's case, she began her Jazz journey at the age of three. The dance enthusiast has won several accolades, including bagging the third position among hundred performers at the Imagine Dance Challenge.
An equally strong opponent will be Avery, who won the title of Master Dance of America, a Ballet, Jazz & Tap Intensive, in 2020. In addition to this, the little man also nabbed the Outstanding Dancer award at NYCDA Phoenix.
Looks like we've to play a waiting game with bated breath to see how this challenge plays out. Get your Jazz on and tune in!
