Wang Yibo teased the increased number of international dancers in the new season. “I heard that there are many new foreign participants,” he revealed. “Those who I follow include GOGO BROTHERS, Hilty and Bosch. I watched their videos while learning locking when I was young. The French dancers who Bouboo brought here are amazing, they are Rochka, Nelson, and Zyko.”

Henry Lau shared that his work as a composer would benefit him in coaching the dancers. “At many times, I compose by myself," Lau explained. "So I think I can make people realize the sounds that they can’t hear. I can show them to everyone.”
