About the Show
In Season 10, producers travel across the country in search of dancers who represent the best America has to offer. Those who shine during auditions will be given a ticket to Las Vegas for callbacks, where they work with top choreographers to learn and then be judged on multiple styles of dance. The best of the best will then move on to the live competition shows this summer. Each week, contestants will be paired up to perform inspired pieces choreographed by some of the biggest names in the business. The following week, the couples at risk after the previous week's performances will be asked to perform solo routines, after which the judges will decide which male and female are eliminated. If a couple is split apart, the two individual dancers who remain become a couple the following week.
