Shakira to Star in New Dance Competition Show ‘Dancing with Myself’
Shakira and NBC are teaming up for a brand new dance competition, Dancing With Myself. The new family-friendly dance challenge series will bring new groups of dancers to the show each week to compete in a series of dance challenges that are designed and demonstrated by the celebrity creators.
Shakira wants you to prove that your “Hips Don’t Lie,” and show viewers how you get down on the dance floor. Dancing With Myself will have each group of dancers isolated in their “own pods” as they work through the new moves.
This dance competition show will give the contestants a short period of time to learn new routines and add their unique flare. Once it is showtime, they will perform in front of a live audience and panel of celebrity judges.
Shakira and the other judges, who have yet to be announced, are there to provide instant feedback and encouragement, but the studio audience decides who wins Best Dancer of the Night and takes home the weekly cash prize.
Shakira’s New Dance Competition Show Dancing with Myself
Dancing With Myself was inspired after Shakira’s “Girl Like Me” dance craze. Her hit song set off a firestorm of viral moments of people living their best lives and just dancing.
“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 in a press release.
Shakira is no stranger to NBC or to competition shows. She was a The Voice coach during Seasons 4 and 6. She is a multi-talented entertainer, seeing that she will show her love for dancing is refreshing.
“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,” Shakira said.
