Casting calls will begin on June 6 in Los Angeles before heading to Chicago, Orlando and New York City, where producers hope to find the nine crews ready to take the title away from current champs Quest Crew.
"I am excited about season four and looking forward to seeing all of the amazingly hot talent out there," executive producer Randy Jackson tells PEOPLE. "Every season just keeps getting better."
In March, L.A.-based Quest Crew beat out the all-female Beat Freaks to win the title of America's Best Dance Crew. Quest's leader Hok, 24, who also achieved fame on FOX's So You Think You Can Dance, told PEOPLE his win felt like "seeing a dream."
Season three also had the first clogging crew on the show. That, judge Lil' Mama told PEOPLE, should encourage everyone to try out. "They have definitely set a bar for our new season," she says. "But basically, for cloggers to come out for the first time, it's gonna inspire other cloggers and tap dancers to want to come out and actually take it up a notch."
