What's the story?

ONE SHOT is a streaming reality series about the search for top underground dancers around Miami to star in a special music video. Renowned dancer and choreographer William "Willdabeast" Adams wants to produce a music video featuring new talent in order to help get them some exposure in the viral dance video world. He usually recruits dancers from major studios in Los Angeles and Miami, but this time he's going out into local Miami communities to look for unknown, gifted dancers with great moves. From local shoe stores to gyms, restaurants, and other local haunts, Adams, along with viral video director Tim Milgram, searches for the best up-and-coming dance stars. After he selects them, he pushes them during rehearsals to see how effectively they can move their bodies, take direction, and execute moves in a way that tells the story he wants to tell. He then chooses which dancer(s) will star in the video with him, and which ones will perform as background crew. Viewers then get to watch the finished YouTube project.

Is it any good?

This fun, positive, and energetic series showcases great dancing, as motivated hip-hop dancers and crews work their moves to demonstrate that they have star quality. It also highlights the passion these dancers have for what they do, and the hard work and dedication that go into doing it. 

Willdabeast makes a point of noting how social media has transformed the way dancers are able to show off their talent and gain some celebrity. He also notes that not every good dancer is formally trained. But One Shot also highlights the fact that dancers sometimes get only once chance to impress, so they must be willing to put themselves out there anytime, anywhere. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about underground dancing. What exactly is it? What makes it unique and popular?

  • One Shot is an example of how dancers can get some media exposure. But is it realistic to think that they can get jobs in the entertainment industry because of it? Can you think of specific dancers or other celebrities who were celebrities on social media, and then became famous offline?
