The Hispanic network opened the casting call for dancers to participate in Masters of Dance Latino, the local version of Keshet Inteternational’s dance format, produced by Endemol Shine Boomdog.

Telemundo is preparing a new reality show: Masters of Dance Latino, the first US version of the successful format by Keshet International, Masters of Dance.

The Hispanic network opened the casting this week for contestants to participate in this new edition, which will be produced by Endemol Shine Boomdog.

Described as “the fiercest TV dance competition”, the competition is looking for solo dancers, couples and groups (up to four members) who specialize in Jazz, Hip-Hop, Ballet, Tango, Salsa, Bachata, Samba, Flamenco, Ballroom, Quickstep, and more.

Telemundo announced the grand prize for the winners will be US$ 100,000.

Sold in several territories around the world, including Spain, Masters of Dance is an original format by Keshet Broadcasting, produced by Tedy Productions and first premiered in Israel on Keshet 12.

The format sees four renowned professional dance masters put everything on the line. In this thrilling high-stakes studio-based competition, every move they make in their fight to win could be their last! Already a smash hit in Israel, Masters of Dance takes the booming dance show trend to a brand new level, as four dance masters – established dancers, creators or choreographers whose talent and expertise has earned international acclaim – each take on the challenge of forming a new company of dancers to compete in a series of head-to-head battles.

Thousands audition, but only six dancers can be selected for each company before they enter the stunning Masters of Dance battle arena. Master vs master, company vs company, style vs style – it is each master’s decisions on music, choreography, costumes and dancers that will determine their company’s success in each battle. The dancers will give their all, but, after the audience has voted, it is the master who pays the price for failure… as the loser must eliminate one dancer, and companies with only two dancers left must close.

In the electrifying finale, the two remaining masters lead their prevailing dancers in an epic showdown – but when the stakes are this high, who will have what it takes to be crowned best dancer and who will become Master of Dance?
