Tradition and elegance... seduction and sizzle... Ballroom is back! From the producer who first brought the magic of competitive ballroom dancing to television, America's Ballroom Challenge returns to PBS.
Hosted by stage and screen actress Jasmine Guy (A Different World, Showtime's Dead Like Me) and undefeated 7-time Latin Dance Champion, Ron Montez, America's Ballroom Challenge is now in its second season as a five-hour series. With an hour dedicated to each of the four major dance styles, and a grand finale, where champions compete against each other, America's Ballroom Challenge airs on KUED-Channel 7 Wednesdays at 7 p.m., beginning January 30. "The competition combines the excitement of a sporting event with the drama of a reality series," says series creator and producer Aida Moreno.
Shot at the world's largest ballroom dancing competition in Columbus, Ohio, and broadcast in stunning High Definition, America's Ballroom Challenge once again takes viewers onto the dance floor and behind the scenes as 24 world-class couples compete for the ultimate dance title, "America's Best."
Take a look beyond the dance floor, and meet some of the players who make this amazing event come to life year after year. In addition to the competition, America's Ballroom Challenge brings you an array of exhibitions performed by dancers of all ages.
"We're thrilled to be able to bring comprehensive coverage to this massive event," says Moreno. "I love being able to showcase so many couples dancing at such a high level."
