Celebrity Guest Choreographer Nick Florez Shakes Up The Studio (Season 12) #DCCMakingTheTeam | CMT


(upbeat music) – Okay guys, tonight we
have a guest choreographer. Tonight we have a surprise for the ladies, a rockstar choreographer
coming in from L.A. Nick Florez is joining us. If you’re familiar with some of the most iconic dances that you’ve seen recently, it’s his work as choreography,
or his work as a dancer. He’s performed with
Britney Spears, Beyonce, and Janet Jackson, he’s choreographed for Selena Gomez, Pink, and Katy Perry, even Katy Perry’s Super Bowl performance. (woman laughing) And he’s joining us tonight
to lend his experience, expertise, and motivation to the girls. We’re with dance royalty,
thank you for being here. – Oh my gosh, so happy to be here. – I grew up watching him
perform with Britney Spears and all these amazing
people, so to have him walk in the room was really cool for me. – So I grew up here in Texas,
I’m a huge fan of the DCC, and a huge fan of dance,
and I’m super excited to see what you guys have. I think what the DCC
girls, and these huge stars that I’ve worked with have in common is their fearlessness to
dream at doing huge things. – Your story is a story
of passion, of dance. And would you share with
us your journey of dance? Because I know that your dance career wasn’t handed to you on a silver platter. Here is a choreographer who’s danced with every major artist in the business, and guess where he
started, with Kitty Carter. – So, I showed up at Kitty’s door, and I was so excited, but
also I was scared (beep). – His only drawback for
me was that he was small, and he was a guy, but he
danced incredibly strong. I mean he’s just always been fierce. – Kitty had an amazing
influence, not only helping me to be a better dancer, but
she also really inspired my choreographic style,
which really has been such a huge help in what I do for
television and live tours. Kitty basically kicked my
butt to California. (chuckles) She’s like “You’re done
here, you gotta move on”. So I went to L.A., because
for me that was my dream, and you hear no everyday. Everyone goes through
the cycle of rejection. But if you have a dream,
it’s for you to hold onto, and no one else to tell you to let go of. – Okay, let’s do group
one, we’re gonna the kicks and the jump split this time. ♪ Sipping on this seven-seven ♪ ♪ Never been this close to heaven ♪ ♪ Got the pretty turned up to eleven ♪ ♪ Dropping ’em dead on the dance floor ♪ ♪ Somebody better call a doctor ♪ ♪ She’s a little heart stopper ♪ ♪ I’m talking breaker breaker one-niner ♪ ♪ She’s a flat liner ♪ ♪ Oh ♪ ♪ Yeah she’s a flat liner ♪ (applause) – Did y’all get the memo
on doing a jump split? – No ma’am, but I can do it now. – Full out. Kiera not going down in
the jump splits today was a very dangerous moment. One person goes down
differently than the rest, you can injure someone on your side. – I mean isn’t it usually
full out, unless you tell ’em to mark it?
– Yes. Especially if you’re being judged. – Who did you notice in line? – Oh gosh, your energy’s awesome. You look like you’re having the best time. Doesn’t even look like you’re
worried about the steps. Which I think is what it’s about. You shouldn’t look like you’re thinking about the choreography, I
thought you guys did a great job. I thought your, are you a rookie? You held your own, yeah
you were holding it down. I noticed a kick moment where everyone was kicking one way and
you were kicking the other. It caught my eye and made me look at you for the wrong reason,
we all have mess ups, no one’s perfect all the time. But I know at this stage,
it’s really important to knock it out of the ball park. – Kelly and Judy are
looking for any reason to cut anyone, so hopefully
this mistake tonight, they kind of see that,
okay there was a mistake but it’s not gonna be super
detrimental to my status. – Okay, next group. ♪ Yeah, sipping on this seven-seven ♪ ♪ Never been this close to heaven ♪ ♪ Got the pretty turned up to eleven ♪ ♪ Dropping ’em dead on the dance floor ♪ – Bring it, come on. ♪ She’s a little heart stopper ♪ ♪ I’m talking breaker breaker one-niner ♪ ♪ She’s a flat liner ♪ ♪ Oh ♪ ♪ Yeah she’s a flat liner ♪ (applause) – Brenden and Terry,
y’all both look like y’all were having to think too much,
and some of that Brenden, you could do so much
stronger, you floated through a lot of moves.
– You want your dancing to be like a pulse, like a heartbeat. Where it’s like boom,
do-do-do, boom, do-do-do. And that’s what I wanna
feel when I watch it. And so it was all great,
but there were moments where I was like, oh I want that to be (fingers snapping)
stronger, or sharper. Kitty used to tell us “Don’t
be afraid to touch yourself”, (woman laughs)
and what I mean by that is, even when you’re coming up your body, you have to like, you have to, some of you aren’t even touching your, or when you’re down, and
you come up your legs. – [Girls] Wow! – Like. (giggles)
(girls cheering) you should be so hot that
you wanna touch yourself. – So we want to improv to
one of your songs by Pink and we’re gonna have a Pink party! – Pink party.
– We’re gonna have an improv session with
Nick, and we’re gonna play his great music and let Nick see them as their own natural performer. I think we’re gonna do little groups. So group one A, and one B. – There’s no wrong, so
just go for it, yeah? ♪ Why so serious ♪ ♪ So raise your glass if you are wrong ♪ ♪ In all the right ways ♪ ♪ All my underdogs ♪ ♪ We will never be, never be ♪ ♪ Anything but loud and nitty gritty ♪ – Tonight was just what I
needed to just shake the nerves, and we just went out there
and we were dancing crazy and girls were flipping, and it was fun. ♪ Just come on, and come on ♪ ♪ And raise your glass for me ♪ (girls cheering) – I mean, you’re the party.
– Yeah. – Thank you.
– We all wanna be at your party.
– I love to party. – [Choreographer] Okay, next group. ♪ Why so serious ♪ ♪ So raise your glass if you are wrong ♪ ♪ In all the right ways ♪ ♪ All my underdogs ♪ ♪ We will never be, never be ♪ ♪ Anything but loud and nitty gritty ♪ ♪ Dirty little freaks ♪ ♪ Won’t you come on, and come on ♪ ♪ And raise your glass ♪ – Yes! Yes. ♪ For me ♪
(girls cheering) Who loved that she
started against the wall? I mean if this was an
audition, I would already be watching her, because I’m
like okay, she made a choice. So kudos, that was awesome. (applause) – Hey if you thought you were
the best up in your group, get up and do it again. Kitty, they’re not all getting up. I thought they’d all get up. Oh my gosh, do you not all
think you were the best? Everybody let’s go! (girls cheering) ♪ Why so serious ♪ ♪ So raise your glass if you are wrong ♪ ♪ In all the right ways ♪ ♪ All my underdogs ♪ ♪ We will never be, never be ♪ ♪ Anything but loud and nitty gritty ♪ ♪ Dirty little freaks ♪ ♪ So raise your glass if you are wrong ♪ ♪ In all the right ways ♪ ♪ All my underdogs ♪ – This is the best dance
party I have ever been to. I mean it’s so much fun we get to dance with our 40 other sisters
that we have here tonight and just let loose and dance
to one of the best songs that you can dance to. ♪ For me ♪ (cheers and applause) – And did you guys have
fun just letting go? It feels good because I
think you’re always focused on being perfect.
– Thank you. (applause)
– That’s exactly what we needed for this training camp, to release the pressure and have fun and enjoy performing.
– Now I feel like I can brag to my friends in L.A. and say I know the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. – The reality will set in when
I come back into the studio, miss buzzkill, and call
people into my office. So we’ll peekaboo in 30 minutes.

  1. I missed seeing Kitty Carter this past season 14 … is she done with DCC? I’ve heard rumblings about a falling out, and I understand why people would think she was wrong (Kitty went limp in season 13 when Victoria gained a little weight and wanted her to not be cut, when in the past with others she’d have not batted an eye and said get rid of her), but her history!

    Sure hope they can come to an understanding.

    Anyone have any deets?
