Shakira, a Colombian singer song writer has teamed up with NBC to host a new dance competition series called ‘Dancing with Myself.’ ‘Dancing with Myself’ will be a family friendly competition that aims to bring out the performer in everyone. It was inspired by Shakira’s own passion for dance. Every week, a new group of dancers of all ages will compete in a range of dance challenges designed by the show’s well known producers, including Shakira. Contestants will be secluded in their own pods for a set amount of time in order to learn the routines and add their own unique twist. They’ll have the chance to perform the dance in front of a live audience.
As the competition progresses, Shakira and her panel of judges will provide feedback and support, leaving the public to pick who wins Best Dancer of the Night to take home the cash prize. I’m excited to be a part of a dance competition that places such a high value on creative movement and how it translates into personal expression, not to mention how it contributes to a sense of community,” Shakira said.
She further added, “I’ve personally been blown away by some of the talents I’ve seen thanks to people having access to their own platforms through social media. Dance has been an incredibly potent force throughout my life, and I’m eager to show the world how transformative, empowering and fun it can be. Universal Television Alternative Studio and Irwin Entertainment are on board to produce the series. John Irwin, Dave Kuba, Eli Frankel and Ben Thursby-Palmer will executive produce, along with Jaime Levine and Shakira. ‘Dancing with Myself’ has been licensed by NBCUniversal Formats.
