Dance Factory Claims Repeat Gold Open Coed Jazz

The Open Coed Jazz division provided some of the most unique and wild performances of The 2019 Dance Worlds, highlighted by each of the top-10 teams bringing something special to the floor. The international flair in this division is what makes it so unpredictable, as well as one of the most fun to watch. Ten teams from six different countries came to Orlando in search of gold, and it was a showdown for the ages. 

Representing for Mexico, Dance Factory kicked, turned, and leaped their way to the top spot. The reigning World Champions came back for more after an incredible victory in 2018. This year, after only winning the Preliminary competition by .3, the pressure was on to do whatever it took to fend off the charging contenders. The incredible mix of males and females on the team is what ended up making the difference. They were able to maximize their strengths by highlighting individuals and groups at times, but then coming together for some very big moments that were legitimately jaw-dropping. The performance was extremely high-energy, and they used that energy to bring home the gold for Mexico.

Behind the Bluebonnets was Strut Performing Arts, who also put on a show that essentially demanded a podium spot. Known for their strong technique and foundation, the dancers showed off exactly that on their way to the bronze.
