Open Kick Finals Sure To Impress On Sunday

The Open Kick division made its debut at The 2019 Dance Worlds, and it did not disappoint. Five teams are vying for the World Champion title this weekend, and Day 1 was a showcase of what we can expect from this division for many years to come. It’s hard to determine exactly what the Open Kick division really is because there are so many components to it that teams get to play around with. In Prelims, each team came with a unique and individual idea and performed it with excellence and pride. If there was an ever a division that we’d call “pure fun”, it’d be this one!

Leading the way in the inaugural event is Energizers. Out of all of the competitors, they had the routine that kept the quickest pace throughout, which made everything more exciting. It felt as though there was some variation of a kick sequence going on for the entirety of the routine. There were visuals going on in each transition that had everyone literally saying “whoa!” multiple times. The entire experience was a visual delight, and we can’t wait to see more in Finals.

Coming up in the second position was Foursis Dance Academy: Dazzler Dance Team. Their Patriotic theme and costumes were the perfect match for this division where performance and memorability are key. They exuded so much joy that it was impossible not to feel happy while watching them.

Following closely behind in third is Power of Dance – Indus – Knock on Wood. The very first few seconds of the routine had us hooked, and then they kept us smiling for the entirety of the routine. Their transitions in and out of kick sequences were really interesting and extremely fun.

Also performing in the new division were Dance United and the only non-US Open Kick team, Colegio Nueva York from Columbia. Both teams also did a fantastic job bringing their own unique flair to the floor. The best part of both of these routines was the facial expressions; the dancers could not get the smiles off of their faces if they tried, and it was wonderful.

If this was a test run for this division’s future, then things are certainly promising! There is so much to look forward to with Open Kick, starting with the Finals tomorrow. Good luck to all of the teams as they try to kick their way to gold!
