Watching well-choreographed dance routines is always a joy, and Netflix’s ‘Dance 100’ certainly delivers on that. Featuring some of the world’s most talented dancers, the reality show is everything one can ask for as a fan of street dancing. The chance it provides aspiring choreographers also allows them to tell the world precisely what they can do. One such shining contestant from the show’s very first season was Celine “Boom” Edmondson, who made it all the way to the competition’s semi-finals. If you are one of her many admirers and are curious about where she is nowadays, worry not because we have your back!
Celine Edmondson’s Dance 100 Journey
As one of the eight contestants of ‘Dance 100’ season 1, Celine was eager to be seen and heard on stage as big as the Netflix show. While she passed the first two rounds with flying colors, the same was not true for the third level. As one of the two contestants with the least amount of votes, Celine had to participate in a dance battle against Janick Arseneau. However, the former made a delightful comeback and won over 50% of the judging dancers to secure a place in the semi-finals.
Now ready to be a part of the competition’s penultimate round, Celine had to choreograph two routines for 25 dancers each. For the first performance, she had to pay homage to the decade of the 2000s. With a pre-assigned song, the artist ensured that the energy we all love when it comes to this particular dancing era was visible on stage. As a 90s baby, Celine was quite familiar with the given timeframe. Nevertheless, her performance did leave people wanting more, given that she was now a semi-finalist.
The time had come for Celine and her team to visually showcase a story based on the idea of breaking free from the typical pattern of life. She felt strongly about this topic, and the dancer created a tale of everyday factory workers breaking free from their mundane lives and living as they wanted. The utilization of colors to depict the change was certainly appreciated by many. Yet, some judges thought the performance could have been elevated. In the end, Celine was, unfortunately, unable to make it to the finals. Still, she did gain a massive number of supporters thanks to her stellar performance in the show.
