Daily Dance: Michael Dameski Is A Champion In My Book

Michael Dameski

Aussie dance phenom Michael Dameski may not have won the big prize on the finals of NBC’s World of Dance this week, but he is a champ in my book.

Dameski’s technique, artistry and fearlessness makes him a force of nature on the dance floor.

I don’t need to convince you – his dancing will.

Last month, I wrote about the incredible Michael Dameski, who is currently KILLING it on NBC’s World of Dance.

The talented dancer from ‘down under’ is back up tonight for the Upper Division Final, but let’s catch up on his latest performance from two weeks ago when he delivered this stunning dance performance.

What can’t this guy do?

Oh, and then there’s the fact that he’s totally easy on the eyes.

Australia’s Michael Dameski Flies High On ‘World Of Dance’

Watching the new season of World of Dance last night, it was impossible to ignore the amazing talent of dancer/actor Michael Dameski.

The 22-year-old from Sydney, Australia wowed the audience (and judges) with his spectacular, high-flying performance to Shawn Mendes’ “Mercy.”

At one point, the judges literally gasped as Dameski’s tight, lithe body leaped, twirled and flipped across the stage.

This isn’t Dameski’s first trip to the TV competition rodeo. In 2014, he competed and won the Australian edition of So You Think You Can Dance.

Professionally, he’s also starred in the title role of the Australian and Broadway productions of Billy Elliot the Musical and appeared in the national touring company of Newsies as well as Travis Wall’s acclaimed dance company Shaping Sound.

Dameski definitely has the goods – technique, passion, line, musicality, subtlety, looks – to take home the $1 million prize on World of Dance.

Check out his amazing performance below.

And since we’re in the discovery phase with the handsome Mr. Dameski, let’s check out his Instagram account 😉
