Travis Payne at Legend Tokyo

September 2015

With some of the highest participation numbers in the world for such an event, the choreographer contest "Legend Tokyo" was recently held at Yokohama Arena.

Now in its fifth year, the contest invited Travis Payne as a special guest judge for the competition. In addition, he produced a special tribute show in honor of Michael Jackson, choreographed with dancers brought in through open submissions in Japan.

With virtually no precedent for Travis Payne holding a workshop open to the public in Japan, people responded with a massive flood of applications to experience this truly legendary chance.

On the day of the event, the lucky participants were grateful to enjoy this rare opportunity and magnificent performance.
