A very popular talent hunt reality show where contestants compete to be named America’s favourite dancer. Each week contestants dance with a different partner to test their versatility. All types of dance backgrounds are encouraged from salsa to hip-hop, jazz to ballet. The two couples whom the viewers at home decide have performed the weakest are eliminated each week by a panel of judges until only four remain. In the end only one couple will be crowned the winner and receive a grand prize. This is my personal favourite :)
