GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter Philip Lawrence hosts the series with a trio of judges: dancer and actress Jenna Dewan, professional celebrity dancer Dexter Mayfield and renowned hip hop choreographer Tricia Miranda.


Throughout the season, the teams will learn different dance routines, from hip hop and ballroom to contemporary and theatrical, among others, and will tackle a fierce new performance each week in hopes of earning top scores from the judges and continuing in the competition. At the end of every episode, the two lowest-scoring teams will battle each other in a freestyle dance-off, as the judges determine which team will be eliminated and which will advance.
