Dance 100 cast — a who's who guide to the Netflix dance competition.
Dance 100 is an extraordinary street dance competition that sees eight successful dancers create jaw dropping routines in the hopes to become the next superstar choreographer.
As they compete to win the $100,000 prize money, they must showcase their routines using a group of the world's best dancers known as the Dance 100. The contestants must choreograph, teach and perform mind blowing group performances that will impress the judges — who are also their own dancers.
