Storyline

A group of overweight people are entered into a weight loss/dance competition. Housed together for the duration of their time in the competition, the contestants are provided with a general fitness trainer, a nutritionist, a physician, and a costume supervisor. Each is also provided a professional dance partner/choreographer, with who he/she performs a series of dance routines in front of a panel of dance experts, who score the routines on a scale of 1 to 10. Each week, the averaged dance score for each contestant is added to his/her weight loss score (the percentage of weight loss for that week). The person with the lowest overall score for the week is eliminated from the competition until there is one contestant left standing, who is named Dance Your Ass Off champion. Written by Huggo

There are men too
17 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There aren't many reviews for this show, but they all make some disparaging comment about the overweight women and completely ignore the fact that there are women AND men on DYAO. Admittedly, at the beginning, it's hard to watch them try to dance when they are sometimes physically unable, but each week, as they lose more weight, it's amazing to see the changes in their bodies, their dancing abilities and their self-confidence. It takes an unbelievable amount of courage for these people to come on the show and the transformations that most of them make (albeit with a trainer, nutritionist, doctor and professional dancers) is astounding. Instead of making fun of them, it would be better to applaud them for acknowledging their weight issues and putting forth so much effort to change themselves.
