The competition is inspired by social media dance challenges and contestants will be given a short amount of time to learn new dances designed by the show’s celebrity judges, including Shakira.

They will then be asked to perform them for a live audience.

The judges will provide feedback and the audience will decide who wins the cash prize.

‘Dance has been an incredibly potent force throughout my life, and I’m eager to show the world how transformative, empowering and fun it can be,’ she said.
