The legendary celebrity fashion photographer, talent scout and manager Jim Jordan has launched the world’s first virtual dance competition, MetaStarz, which will take place in the metaverse. An entirely one-of-a-kind concept, dancers from around the globe can submit dance videos on Instagram or TikTok where the top 10 will be flown to an exclusive private destination and will be transformed into avatars for the finale. MetaStarz aims to elevate the dance and entertainment industry through this groundbreaking project and give back to dancers. A prize pool of $100,000 awaits prospective competitors.
Jordan is known for his trailblazing career and dominates the world of fashion photography, film production and talent management through his company, White Cross Management. Jordan has discovered the biggest supermodels of our time such as Taylor Hill, Gigi Hadid and Jeremy Meeks, to name a few. “Scouting, discovering and fostering talent has always been a passion of mine, and now I’m pioneering and creating opportunities in an entirely new digital world,” said Jordan. “I’m holding people’s hands to escort them into this new untapped reality and showing them what lies in the years ahead. We are forging the future.”
The idea for MetaStarz came to fruition in late 2021, when Jordan and his friend and founder of Crypto Gaming United Maurice June introduced him to the concept of the metaverse, Crypto and NFTs. Together, Jordan and June collaborated to bring the dance and entertainment industry into the metaverse. “The coronavirus pandemic ravaged and put a stop to the industries the last two years,” said June. “MetaStarz is bringing life back into the dance and entertainment communities, and we want to help change people’s lives.”
Pioneering the uncharted territory of the metaverse is no easy feat, but with over 2.5 million views on social media in less than a week, MetaStarz groundbreaking global phenomenon aims to dominate the physical and digital world with the vision and guidance of celebrated star maker Jim Jordan.
Submissions for MetaStarz end on March 18, and the top 100 will be announced on March 25. For more information, visit www.themetastarz.io.
