The critically acclaimed series, and Oxygen's most watched freshman series in network history, "Dance Your Ass Off" features talented, full-figured contestants who struggle with their weight and dance to unleash their inner thin. Last season, the contestants' "thinspiration" resulted in more than 500 lbs. lost. The series pairs each contestant with a professional dance partner who trains him or her for their weekly stage performances. Then they burn up the dance floor and the calories 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 Magical Elves with Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz serving as executive producers. Lisa Ann Walter conceived the original "Dance Your Ass Off" and executive produces along with Kate Rigg.
