After thousands of dance acts from the around the globe entered for a chance to compete for a $1 million prize, "World of Dance" has chosen its 47 contestants for its NBC competition series premiering in May.

Solo dancers, duos, and crews will be pitted against each other regardless of their dance style. The acts slated for the show's May 30 premiere range from numerous disciplines, including hip-hop, popping, locking, tap, ballet, break dancing, ballroom, stomping, and more.

These competitors are instead divided by the three divisions: Junior (any size act, 17 years old and under), Upper (groups of 1-4, 18 and older) and Team (groups of five or more, 18 and older).
