Derek Hough Starts Production on “World of Dance”!!

And so it begins!! The next great creative adventure, “World of Dance”!! Great photo from Derek.

ETA: Vogue here. Below are some photos and video from the taping. I saw this same guy posting on his experience elsewhere. He said the taping was “cool” even though it ran late. Once it got started, everything went easy and smooth. He also said the set looked amazing and the judges had a cool vibe with each other. He also said the contestants were incredible. After each performance the judges gave a review and scored them from 1-100 points. To move forward you have to score 80 or better and it’s based on the average from all three judges. Each judge also had a power save option that they can each use once. He really enjoyed it. The judges and Jenna Dewan Tatum were are all very passionate about dancing and it worked. Fascinating stuff. I have a feeling this show is going to be a huge success.
