In the fall of 2016, GROOV3™ and TheFitExpo Group Training Zone Stage teamed up to create Wow The Crowd, a Dance Fitness Instructor Challenge. We wanted to create a space to showcase the dance fitness phenomenon and the awesome instructors it has to offer. Our mission is to highlight fitness…not just from the gyms, but also from dance studios. We are in search of the of the Most D.E.F. (Dynamic, Entertaining, and Fierce) Instructors out there who believe they have what it takes to Wow The Crowd!

Set on The Group Training Zone Stage at TheFitExpo in 5 major markets in the US, those selected to compete get 5 minutes to show off their stuff and win the audiences vote. Besides bragging rights, the winner will go home with a cash prize, a trophy, sponsorship swag and the opportunity to share their talent beyond the expo.

Wow The Crowd is elevated by IMMORDL and sponsored by: ActionHouse, Pong, AFAA and The Group Training Zone Stage.
