With the flood of new dance shows hitting the airwaves, here's a breakdown of all the shows that will be sure to bust a move.
Dancing With The Stars:
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.
Dancing with the Stars is the U.S. installment of the international smash hit series, Strictly Come Dancing.
So You Think You Can Dance:
From FOX, the creators of American Idol and the producers of American Bandstand and The American Music Awards comes So You Think You Can Dance.
In its sophomore season, this show is offering the winner a one year contract for Celine Dion's Vegas show, a brand new car and $100K cash. Contestants perform a particular style of dance each week with a partner. The audience votes on their favorite couple leaving the 3 couples with the least votes up for elimination. After each dancer performs a solo of their choice for the judges, one male and one female contestant are up for elimination.

Rock The Reception
A newly married couple's first dance is one of those wedding traditions that hangs around despite all the stress it can cause. TLC focuses on how couples and their families are updating the tradition for modern weddings and various cultures.
Your Mama Don't Dance
Ten professional dancers are paired with amateur partners who are trained in a variety of dance styles. Sounds like your typical reality dance competition, right? Wrong--these contestants don't know it, but each one is paired with a parent as their dance partner. The result will be a highly charged, emotional take on the dance competition genre.
