Before Dancing with the Stars!
5 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This half-hour show was shown weekly in syndication. I remember actor, Adrian Zmed, being the host back in the 1980s. They would have judges who were kinder than today's judges. Sometimes being brutally honest doesn't always convey a good image. They would dance on the dance fever stage in disco style to some seventies and eighties music. They were couples who competed for a prize money and the judges were probably dancers themselves. Anyway, the show was worth the entertainment for the time in syndication. The music reminds me of nostalgia and I recall syndication as being a comfortable place to see other programs that normally wouldn't be seen on network television.
