Pow Wow Dancers On NBC’s World Of Dance

Posted By Paul G June 4th, 2020 Last Updated on: June 4th, 2020

Indigenous Enterprised performed on the NBC tv show World of Dance this week.  The group was critiqued by judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough and Ne-Yo.

Their performance included Grass dancer, Hoop dancer, Fancy dancer, and a Chicken dancer. Their high energy routine impressed the judges.

Ultimately the judges did not advance the group further in the competition. 

The performance, in my opinion, was a huge success, however.  Millions of people have now been exposed to Pow Wow culture – even if just for a couple of minutes.  I hope that this will inspire more people to come out to their local Pow Wows to find out more about our culture.

I feel lack of knowledge on a dance style shouldnt stop the judges from choosing. It’s not their genre but it was very well done and I would have liked to see more.

I watched the show, live. Great inspiration for all. Thank you. Keep up your message to all.


Oh Man! Almost! – First rule of auditioning is DONT show versatility. Strange but true. Too much going on. Goes for my art at least – show them what you can do but keep to one theme, one medium, one size etc. I thought the first song was powerful – judges were rockin – then it went electronic and the judges were not startled anymore. But you are right – it was out there on – rockin on NBC!! Congrats!
