Season 4 of NBC’s hit contest “World of Dance” features Filipino dance talents.
Competing in the upper-division is UPeepz.
The group traces its origins from a dance team from the University of the Philippines.
They recently made it through the show’s duels round.
Its judges’ panel is headed by multi-talented actress Jennifer Lopez, who started in show business through dance.
She is also one of the producers of the series.
“I appreciate the energy that you bring to the duels and I applaud y’all for that. Moving on in the competition, the only thing that I saw that I wanted to see more was a little bit more formations, because y’all had such dope visuals happening.”
UPeepz is competing next in the semi-finals round.
In the junior division, Filipino-Canadian dancers get to strut their stuff — with the group GRBMNT, which is gaining popularity with their explosive hip-hop routines.
“World of Dance” airs Tuesdays on NBC.
