It doesn’t get more iconic than a dance competition set on the streets of NYC hosted by vogue legend Cesar Valentino. Watch as 20 distinctly different dancers twirl, jeté, and flip down sidewalks, steps, and crosswalks to win Best Walk.
Today we’re outside One World Trade Center and our dancers include a “gothic superhero with ghost powers,” a young Japanese woman new to the city, and a former exotic dancer from 1980s New York. Whose moves will prevail?
Witness a seasoned ballet dancer arabesque next to bok choy stands, a goth dancer do an aerial flip across the street, and a second-grader attempt the worm outside a seafood shop. Who will be named champion out of Chinatown and move on to the finals?
From a Cuban woman whose moves turn heads to an old-school voguer who is a legend on the New York ball scene, today’s dancers will be workin’ it down Pier 35 on Manhattan’s waterfront. Who will wow Cesar and move on to the finals?
What do a South Korean breakdancer, a poet, a Taiwanese B-girl, a cheerleading coach, and a 9-year-old girl have in common? They’re all going to be serving their best dance moves down Fifth Avenue. Who will Cesar choose to move on to the finals?
There’s no better—or busier—New York location for the final round than Herald Square. Watch our finalists grand jeté down the crosswalk, twirl around poles, and even arabesque on a moving scooter. Who will Cesar crown the winner of Best Walk?
