The world of dance shows has exploded on the scene in the past several years. With so many to choose from, it can be hard to pick a favorite. This decision is solely based on preference. The one thing they all have in common is that every contestant is paired with a professional, in one way or another, and they are all competing for a prize in the end. On one hand, you have your typical celebrity pairing. Dancers learn and perform a variety of dances, from ball room to hip-hop, with beautiful gowns or some form of music genre appropriate attire. These types of dance shows are a good pairing for a family night around the television. Dancing has largely become a staple in most young peoples’ lives. Several of the other dance shows are geared for just such a fact. During these shows, the dancers either perform as a group or as an individual. Most of the time the contestant will have the freedom to choose their type of music and dance style. Ultimately, the contestants are all trying to obtain fame and glory. These shows offer great enthusiasm for the dance world and a family friendly environment.
