Dancing with the Stars is a unique series that pairs up celebrities with professional ballroom dance partners in an intense competition -- live -- in front of a studio audience and the nation.
Each season has a select number of celebrity/professional dance pairs.
The pairs are then judged by a panel of expert judges as well as by the viewers at home.
One team will be eliminated each week.
The couples must maintain their focus, grace and composure while learning precise movements and maneuvering in extravagant costumes.
Will they remain compatible during the course of the competition? Dancing with the Stars has broad appeal, offering viewers dazzling costumes, dancing, celebrity gossip, behind-the-scenes training and contemporary music performed by a live 15-piece band.
The format has already been an international hit in several countries.
