Some dance teams move together so fluidly, their movements seem almost effortless.
During a qualifying round in the Junior Division of NBC’s “World Of Dance,” two seventeen year olds gave the kind of performance you’d expect to see from dancers twice their age, with twice their experience. Charity and Andres are just teenagers, yet their dancing reveals an intensity you don’t often see — on stage, or off.
The pair danced to James Arthur’s song, “Say You Won’t Let Go.” As soon as their feet hit the dance floor, you can tell they’re going to be something special. The way that Andres is able to easily lift Charity up and over his head makes is seem as if she’s as light as a bird!
The two have a push-and-pull aspect to their dancing, and Charity does quite a bit of heavy lifting herself as they whirl across the stage. They’re both clearly as flexible as humanly possible, and they achieve incredible heights as if it’s no big deal.
Charity and Andres move so well together, the judges even wondered if they were romantically involved, but they insist they’re just friends and dance partners, nothing more!
In the qualifying round of this popular talent contest, performers must achieve an average score of 80 or higher from judges NE-YO, Jennifer Lopez, and Derek Hough. Charity and Andres not only reached that score, they blew the judges away!
J-Lo said she felt like they moved as if they were one dancer, a tremendous compliment. NE-YO said they were “Million-dollar-worthy,” and all three judges gave Charity and Andres a standing ovation.
The duo was rewarded with an average score of 95.3, a score that more than qualified them for then next “Duels” level of the show. Not only that, but they got the highest score of any contestant for that night’s show.
They honestly make it look so easy, but we know it took a lot of talent and many years of hard work to get to this level. Great job, kids!
