World of Dance

TV 's dance world leaps from a tiny ex-ballerina to booming b-boys

Two of the best things about summertime TV are the dance shows -- the long-running "So You Think You Can Dance" (8 p.m. Mondays on Fox) and the new "World of Dance" (10 p.m. Tuesdays, NBC). Both have astoundingly talented an cers. Now "World" is starting its second round on June 20 and reruns its final audition-hour at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 17. Here's the story I sent to papers, looking at two extremely different -- and extremely skilled -- acts.
