As the presenting sponsor of the World of Dance tour, Paul Mitchell was recently invited to attend the World of Dance Industry Awards and celebrate the extreme talent of the tour’s dancers and choreographers. As the Sports Marketing Coordinator, I had the honor of representing our company and getting an insider’s look at the awards show. In three words: it was incredible.
Let me paint the picture for you: the best of the best in the dance industry gathered (along with 700 guests) at the Avalon Hollywood to attend the Academy Awards themed show, and honor some of the world’s best dancers and choreographers. We’re talking best in the business!
From Instructor of the Year to Best Choreography in a Music Video, elite dancers were recognized and awarded for their creativity and talent. Every year, we award one dancer with the Paul Mitchell Style Award and this year the winner was Miguel Zarate. Let me tell you, that man has style!
Over the course of the evening, we mingled with Les Twins and watched incredible performances, my favorite of which was performed by my new friend and So You Think You Can Dance season 10 winner, Fik-Shun. I even got an impromptu dance lesson from him backstage! I can tell you from my brief lesson with Fik-Shun that these dancers and choreographers make it look easy but in reality it takes skill, talent and creativity to make it to the top of the dance industry.
From everyone at Paul Mitchell®, we want to send sincere congratulations to all of the World of Dance Awards nominees and winners. We are constantly in awe of your sheer talent!
