The reunion will feature more dramatic weight loss reveals, never-before-seen footage and bloopers from the season as well as contestant "home" stories chronicling the adjustments to their lives since they have been away from the "Dance Your Ass Off" set. Scheduled to appear at the reunion are the professional dancers, the series' judges: creative director Danny Teeson, dancer/choreographer Mayte Garcia, and dancer/actress Lisa Ann Walter along with the world-class team of weight loss specialists, including Dr. Robert Huizenga (NBC's "Biggest Loser")and Crunch trainer Lee Wall.

Beginning today through August 21, fans can visit www.Oxygen.com/FanFavorite to vote for their favorite contestant who will be announced during the reunion. Also on www.Oxygen.com, fans are encouraged to submit their questions for the contestants, judges, and dancers during the reunion.

The DVD is now available at http://shop.oxygen.com for pre-order and ships starting September 15.

"Dance Your Ass Off" brings dance and diet together, featuring talented, full-figured contestants who struggle with their weight and dance to unleash their inner thin. Throughout the season, each contestant is paired with a professional dance partner who trained them for their weekly stage performances - ranging from Hip Hop, to Ballroom and even Pole Dancing! Then they'll shake and rattle their rolls in front of a live studio audience and a panel of expert judges. The judges score the routines, and then the contestants weigh in to reveal their weekly weight loss. The dance score and the weight loss are combined for an overall score, which determines who is sent home each week.

"Dance Your Ass Off" is produced by 495 Productions with SallyAnn Salsano serving as executive producer and Joel Zimmer as co-executive producer, with concept by Lisa Ann Walter, with Walter and Kate Rigg serving as executive producers.
