Dancing shows are one of the latest trends in reality TV to take America by surprise. Millions of viewers tune in each week on Direct TV to watch the cut-throat dancing competitions that rival other talent competitions like “American Idol” and “America’s Got Talent”.
The two biggest names in reality dance TV are “Dancing With The Stars,” and “So You Think You Can Dance?” The first features dancing couples composed of one novice A-lister and one professional dancer. The goal of the competition is to get the highest votes from the judges each week to remain safe. Next, it is in America’s hands to vote for the couple they want to see until the end. This immensely popular dance show often airs twice a week for a total of 3-4 hours of airtime. The professional dancers are recognized world-wide as the best in their trade, and help new dancers achieve extreme results in a short period of time. The training process is so grueling that some stars have even sworn by “DWTS” as their weight-loss regiment.
The other hugely watched dance show is “So You Think You Can Dance?” which puts armature dancers on the spotlight. The contestants are put through an audition, then through a choreography round before even receiving a ticket to Las Vegas. Next, they go through an elimination process to get the top 20 dancers. Finally, it is up to America to vote each week for their favorite acts and determine the ultimate winner. Unlike “DWTS” these dancers have passion and talent that is brought to light in a once-in-a-lifetime competition for most. Their passion radiates in each performance as they all fight for the title of “America’s best dancer.”
These reality TV shows are not only captivating for dance enthusiasts, but they will even draw in curious bystanders. Both shows push their dancers to the ultimate limit of their physical capabilities, often asking them to do tricks and stunts that would never be performed live. They offer everything a good reality TV show should with great entertainment, suspense, laughs, tears and nail-biting finales.
