Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that World of Dance is a mild, family-friendly dance competition. It contains positive messages about dance as an art form as well as those who choose to dance professionally. Some choreography emulates violent behavior, and there's some suggestive moves (and in the case of dance judge Jennifer Lopez, some skimpy outfits), but this all appears in context. Words like "damn" are sometimes audible.
Is It Any Good?
From ballet and ballroom to b-boys and clogging, this fun and exciting series features energetic dance performances by some of the world's elite dancers. While some contestants may be familiar from their YouTube videos or touring with celebs like Beyoncé, others are unknown and breaking out from their local dance scene. Meanwhile, they all offer performances that are athletic, inspired, and creative.
Dancers of all ages will be drawn to the competition, which characterizes itself as "the Olympics of dance." However, even non-dancers may find themselves tuning in, thanks to the wide range of choreography and diverse groups of dancers it features. Ultimately, World of Dance sends positive messages about dance as an art form, and the talented people who are committed to performing.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
