The Dance 100 winner will get a cash prize of $100,000
Initially, the show will feature eight dancers fighting to become the next superstar. All eight dancers will compete against each other in a high-stakes dance competition. A $100,000 prize will be awarded to the winner.
As part of the show, they will be challenged to create mind-blowing routines. To accomplish this, they will use a group of dancers named Dance 100 who will also be the judges of the competition. There will be an increase in the number of dancers with each episode.
In Netflix's official press release, the show is described as follows:
“Each week, the choreographers are tasked with creating and designing mind-blowing dance routines, pulling from a pool of elite dancers known as the Dance 100. The number of dancers will steadily increase every round until the final surviving choreographers will have to craft a massive dance number featuring all 100 dancers.”
"After each performance, the dancers cast their votes to decide who stays in the competition another week and who goes home.”
Keenan Cooks, Rudy Garcia, Brandi Chun, Rex Kline, Akira Armstrong, Celine Edmondson, Max Pham, and Janick Arseneau will feature as choreographers.
The show is set to premiere on Netflix on March 17, 2023, at 3 am ET/2 am ET.
