Strictly Dance Fever
Presenters Zoe Ball, Graham Norton and Joe Mace

Strictly Dance Fever

Starts Saturday 26 March, BBC ONE at 5.55pm and BBC THREE at 7.00pm


The floor is now open for thousands of hopefuls with raw talent and star quality to shake their stuff on-screen in a brand new dance series, Strictly Dance Fever.

From tap to tango, street dance to body popping and salsa to lindy hop, the nation's most talented non-professional dancers are about to strut their stuff on the dance floor hoping to win public support, and your vote!

The irrepressible Graham Norton hosts this dance extravaganza, which sees ten couples taught a new dance routine each week from a variety of different dance styles in the hope of dancing away with the coveted prize of £50,000.

Over on BBC THREE, Zoe Ball will be delivering her delightful dancing analysis after each live Saturday dance-off, which will see one couple eliminated each week.

In the past two months, at six auditions venues around the UK, thousands of dance hopefuls have had just two minutes to see if they've got what it takes to impress the show's dance instructors and win a place on Strictly Dance Fever.

In the first three live shows, Strictly Dance Fever - The Auditions, the best dancers will face the toughest challenge of the competition when they are whittled down to just 10 couples by the judges and viewers at home who will decide which dancers will make it through to the competition.

Over the remaining eight weeks the 10 dance couples will live together and be taught a new dance style every week by the Strictly Dance Fever dance coaches.

On the live shows the judges will dispense their points and criticism making up 50 per cent of the final score while the viewers at home will have their say and make up the other 50 per cent voting by phone and text to decide which couple has got what it takes to master all the dance moves and come out on top as the Strictly Dance Fever Champions.

Strictly Dance Fever on BBC THREE

After the weekly show on BBC ONE, viewers can switch over to Zoe Ball on BBC THREE for access-all-areas on the dance floor and the dancers. Zoe will be joined each week by celebrity fans.

Joe Mace will present Strictly Dance Fever's fanzine show every weekday on BBC THREE featuring up to date news from the training sessions and an insight into how the dance partnerships are working.

Celebrities will be on hand to judge how the ten dancing couples are getting on and to give their opinion on who is likely to crack under the pressure of training.

BBC THREE will also be showing a series of nine, half-hour documentaries, The Auditions, which will chart the journey of the Strictly Dance Fever auditions. Viewers will get to know some of the stars of the show in-depth - those who made it through to the last leg of the audition process and those who will be remembered for their less than flawless performances. will feature daily news from the rehearsals and the live shows, complete with video clips.

Plus, profiles and pictures galore and a weekly competition to win tickets for every Saturday night dance-off.

Strictly Dance Fever is a BBC Format Entertainment production for the BBC.

The executive producer is Karen Smith.
