WEEK 1: THE FIRST 6 CONTESTANTS REHEARSE
Come back next week to see the next 6 contestants rehearse!
In the nail-biting first episode, the first six YouTube stars (out of 12) meet their professional dance choreographer for the very first time. They get down to business, learning and rehearsing their tricky dance routines for an upcoming dance battle. The results range from painful to pleasantly surprising. Will our stars pull it together in time to perform in the first round of Dance Showdown?
DanceOn Network has a new original series. You've seen So You Think You Can Dance. You've seen Dancing with the Stars...but you've never seen moves quite like those featured on the new reality show: Dance Showdown Presented by D-trix.
Twelve dance-challenged YouTube stars pair off with four professional dancers to train, sweat, fail, and ultimately perform in an epic dance battle to win $25,000 CASH. YOU, the audience, vote for the winner. In the end, only one dancer or troupe can triumph as the ultimate Dancer and go home with cold hard cash!
Subscribe to catch new episodes of Dance Showdown Season 2 every Friday!
