    "They have an air of entitlement that sees them effortlessly
    put together polished moves, with more than a few “wow”
    moments for the Crowd."

    The text is about dancers. What's the meaning of 'entitlement' in this case?

    Beh, io ho pensato 'mostrare una certa sicurezza'.

    Forse "aria di sufficienza/superiorità" o "atteggiamento arrogante" o simili.
    Di sicuro non mi sembra un giudizio positivo.
