Celebrities pursuing a career in another field (singing, music, movies, sports, television, modelling, comedy…) come together with professional dancers to form a duo. This professional is also a coach.
After a week of rehearsals during which they have to learn one or more choreographies, each celebrity has to dance on a live TV Show, along with his (or her) partner so that they can be assessed by a jury of professionals for one part, and by the audience for the other.
Each duo has to learn different styles of dances and choreographies: waltz, quickstep, cha-cha-cha, jive, rumba, tango, paso doble, fox-trot, Viennese Waltz, samba, salsa, Charleston, freestyle, American smooth, contemporary and classical.
Each member of the jury gives a mark to the couple on a scale of 0 to 10. The audience votes all night long via phones, text, or a dedicated website.
At the end of each weekly show, the two couples with the lowest grades have to compete one against the other in a “last dance” after which the public votes to decide who wins between them. The couple who loses is then definitely out and the other continues the contest. A celebrity is eliminated on each show.
During the final show, three couples compete with each other. A first couple is eliminated by the jury and the audience’s votes. Then, after one last dance, the winner is selected by the audience: the celebrity who wins the competition gets a symbolic trophy.
In this new season, candidates will have to learn choreographies from waltz, quickstep, cha-cha-cha, rumba, tango salsa, fox-trot or Charleston but they will also have to fulfil new challenges never seen before this 6th season.
