#repost @suresh_kingsunited Finally, we can say India ???????? is on Top in Dancing and history has been created which will be remembered and cherished forever! ????⚔️ Tonight, is the night which each and every Indian is going to remember for life and feel proud seeing the Indian Flag flying high with the perfect score for our stellar performance. 100 100 100! It was the best experience of our life so far. The journey of local dancers from the small gully of vasai Nallasopara to the WORLD CHAMPIONS was really challenging filled with never ending hard work and dedication. I am really happy for all my team members as everyone dreamt of having their own houses since long time and finally after winning 1 Million Dollar, they will be able to convert those dreams in reality now. We have struggled a lot and it took more then 10 years of hardwrk and teamwork for us to become the top Dancers in the entire world. I am thankful to my team for having faith in me and being with me for the past so many years because this wouldn’t have been possible without them. I feel like I have got the best team so here we are “WORLD CHAMPIONS” ???? . . . #TheKings #KingsUnited #worldofdance #worldofdance3 #worldchampions #nbcworldofdance #Wod #wod3 #Wodwinner @nbcworldofdance @jlo @neyo @derekhough
