ADDITIONAL NOTES: a show on hiatus for longer than 12 months - without any news about its future - is assumed to be canceled
DESCRIPTION: (from Lifetime's web site, September 2008) The dance world is about to be turned upside down! In this reality series, some of America's hottest dancers auditioned for a chance to be a part of a new dance competition show under the pseudonym "Dance Nation," but they had no idea what was really in store for them. They soon discovered that they'd be working with a partner and that their partner would be one of their parents! Now, five female dancers will be fox-trotting with their fathers while five male dancers will be doing the mambo with their mothers as they vie for praise from the judges and for America's votes. They must put aside their differences, not step on each other's toes and work together as a team to become the grand champions. Who decides the winners? The judges and you! Each week, the judges will put the two teams with the lowest scores on the chopping block, then it's up to America to determine which team stays in the competition by voting via phone, text and online. The winning team will be announced on Friday, April 18, at the end of the show, following a live vote, and will take home the title and $100,000 in cash and prizes.
