Storyline

Dancers skilled in everything from ballroom and ballet to salsa, jive, hip-hop and krumping, all compete to be named the best. Dancers must impress the judges with their moves and rigorous routines in order to survive the auditions and be invited to Hollywood. Producers traveled to Chicago, New York and Los Angeles in search of dancers who represent the soul and rhythm of America. Some dancers wow the judges, while others leave them speechless. See who struts into the producers' hearts and who trips up on the series premiere. A fortunate 50 dancers who survive the auditions will go to Hollywood to work with five of the top choreographers in the business: Alex Da Silva, Brian Friedman, Dan Karaty, Mia Michaels and Mary Murphy. During the "Hollywood Week," the semifinalists will dance their hearts out, as they learn challenging routines and hope to impress the choreographers. Written by Jiilo_Kim

Fantastic Talent Show...........................
23 July 2007 | by PanamintSee all my reviews

Where else will you see such unbelievably good talent? It blows me away every episode! The talent and effort that is displayed by these dancers is sometimes jaw-dropping it is so good.

Also as a bonus you get the best efforts of some incredibly talented choreographers.

In a way, the talent level is a drawback. With every contestant so talented, how can you choose? I am afraid that the audience voting will just relegate this to a personality contest with many people voting for who they like or who has the cutest smile. I hope it can simply vote down to the greatest dance ability for a winner, but unfortunately that is just not how us humans (myself included) tend to vote sometimes.

Despite numerous flaws, this show is enthusiastic and very watchable and is to be highly recommended.
