Kinjaz is the 30-person dance troupe from Los Angeles, or as they like to call themselves — “a band of brothers on a quest to fearlessly explore the depths of our imagination and artistic purpose.” And yes, they live up to the hype. Most Americans will see them perform for the first time on the new TV dance competition World of Dance in front of superstar dancers/judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo.
To help promote World of Dance, Kinjaz performed live on Access Hollywood. Afterwards, they thanked the TV show for the opportunity not just to “get down on live TV” but to share their intention to “rep something bigger.” That means the troupe always represents more than who is on stage at a particular time. And even that meaning is twofold. First, Kinjaz has over 30 members, not all of whom grace the stage during World of Dance (though the are represented). Second, Kinjaz dances for all people. Or as Kinjaz eloquently puts it: “the few always dance for the many.” Their mantra is: Respect all, fear none. World of Dance airs Tuesdays at 10pm on NBC right after America’s Got Talent.
