VIDEO: Sneak Peek - TLC's Hip Hop Special DANCE KIDS ATL
If you want to dance hip hop, Atlanta is the place to be. At the heart of the hip hop scene is one dance studio that transforms raw talent into career driven superstars, where countless kids train at an early age to become the best dancers in the world. TLC takes viewers inside this destination, Dance 411, in the new one hour special DANCE KIDS ATL airing Wednesday, July 24th at 10/9c. Get a sneak peek below!
TLC's DANCE KIDS ATL showcases a young team of hardcore professional hip hop dancers as they tirelessly rehearse to prepare for their first performance of the competitive season. Lead by dance coach Tracey Berry and famed choreographer Sean Bankhead (who has worked with top stars including Beyoncé, Ciara and Bruno Mars), these powerhouse preteens ranging from ages 9 to 16 have made dance their priority, living out their passion in the studio and on the stage.
For the families that support them, dance isn't just a hobby. They have had to make huge sacrifices to be a part of this cutthroat team and with just six days before the big competition, tensions are high as Sean and Tracey threaten to make cuts if everyone doesn't bring their A-game. The choreography is challenging and in order to win first place, each hip hop hopeful has to elevate their already stellar performance to the next level, or risk being cut from the competition all together.
"Dance 411 has been blessed to work with the most incredible young talent that the country has to offer." Says co-owner Sindy Schneider "Dance 411 not only trains dancers, it also has amazing connections in the entertainment industry to help make dreams come true and we're grateful to be able to share our students' passion and talent on a national TV stage."
