Swing Latino overtook their Team Division rivals Kinjaz on “World of Dance” on August 1 in a controversial decision. Not all fans appreciated their high-energy, acrobatic routine, but their dance style might just win them the $1 million grand prize on August 8. So why not learn how to dance just like them? NBC has released an online exclusive video of the dance troupe instructing viewers. “I’m going to show you interesting steps in Caleño style,” says the troupe leader. “I’ll show you the basics and the steps.” Follow along above, and let us know in our poll below whether you think Swing Latino deserve to win the season.
Swing Latino may be the underdogs going into next week’s season finale. They scored 94.7 in the Team Division Final — a fantastic score by any standard — but it was actually the lowest score of any of the division champs. They’re up against Les Twins, who are the highest-scoring dancers of the season and received the season’s highest score (97.7) during the Upper Division Final — while injured no less. And 14-year-old Eva Igo has evolved into a confident, dynamic performer and dominated the Junior Division Final with a score of 96.7.
