In a revamped Everybody Dance Now tonight, a new one-hour of action-packed dancing took centre stage.
In a night that saw Dance Masters Kelly Rowland and Jason Derulo turn up the heat on the dance floor with
everything from hip hop to ballroom, tap dancing came out top dog.
Hearts may have been won over by cute 12-year-old freestyle dancer Michael Flores, but it was tap act Dying
Art Society that got the audience to their feet.
Team Jason’s Dying Art Society won a tough dance duel decider – winning 52% of the studio audience vote – against Team Kelly’s ballroom act Steven and Giselle and pocket rocket Flores, who learned to get his groove on at just nine-years-old after watching YouTube videos.
Dying Art Society, from Sydney is a ten-member dance troupe who are passionate about ensuring tap
dancing does not become a dying art. The group’s leader, Mitch Dellevergin, had a leg operation six years ago
and could not dance for nearly three years after being told he may never have feeling in his legs again.
With just one winner from each episode now progressing through to the next stage, Dying Art Society was
awarded $10,000 and a place in the Everybody Dance Now semi-finals.
Next week on Everybody Dance Now will see the pressure applied to Kelly Rowland, with her team now
trailing Team Jason.
Everybody Dance Now continues next Sunday night, August 26, at 7.30pm. Or will it? let’s see the ratings!
