Brianna Haith is a nineth grader at Holland Hall School in Tulsa, Okla., she was one of nine girls that auditioned for NBC “World of Dance” show that will premier Feb., 26 on NBC.
Branna currently dances with Kim Massey Dance Company in Edmond, Okla. She is the daughter of Tulsa University Head Men’s Basketball Coach Frank Haith. Coach Haith stated, “Brianna is the real athlete in the family.”
Brianna stated that, “This is a dream come true, I have engaged in dance since the age of three, I’m very excited about this competition and having the opportunity to advance my craft and move my dancing career forward.”
“World of Dance” officially returns for its third season on Tuesday, Feb. 26. And you guys, the level of talent this season is out of control.
This show truly has a knack for attracting some of the best dancers in the business and Season 3 is no exception. There are tons of skilled acts vying for the casual $1 million prize, including 2016 Cover Model Search winner Briar Nolet, January 2018 cover star Charlize Glass, comp-scene standouts Kayla Mak and Lauren Yakima, and “So You Think You Can Dance” (SYTYCD) alum Derek Piquette.
In addition to all the crazy talent competing from the U.S., there are also dancers hailing from Norway, South Korea, Thailand, India, and Italy (to name just a few). If the last two seasons are any indication, then we’re pretty much guaranteed to get some absolutely amazing backstories, a much-needed weekly dose of J. Lo, Derek Hough, and NE-YO, and world-class dancing every episode.
