It is a show gathering different celebrities (humourists, singers, actors, hosts, athletes…) and professional dancers. Each professional dancer will be a partner and teacher of one of the celebrity all along the programme.
Principle: every Saturday night, after a week of hard rehearsals in a studio, couples will compete one by one on a pre chosen theme by the jury. Each dance is unique to each duo (salsa, rumba, waltz, fox-trot, tango, cha-cha-cha, Charlestown, pasodoble…) some technical steps are imposed by the professional jury. This year, the jury comprises: the talented M Pokora, the beautiful Marie-Claude Pietragalla, the enthusiastic Jean-Marc Généreux, and the fearsome Chris Marques.
During the evening, the jury will grade the different duos giving them a mark from 0 to 10. At the end of the evening, only 2 duos will compete for “the last dance”.
The public will have the last vote, nominating the winning duo by phone, texts, or on the dedicated website.
The winning celebrity will be presented with a symbolic trophy.
During this new season, couples will have some new artistic challenges to rise to.

If I told you that you were the least famous of all the candidates, would you take it badly?
Not at all. It is the truth. So much so that I couldn’t see myself getting further in the adventure. With people like Anthony Kavanagh, Corneille, that everybody knows, I had no reason to believe that I would be in the final..
And how do you explain this unforeseen outcome?
That’s a good question! (laughs) I think we worked a lot with Denitsa… and that the public likes us. Maybe they like us because we’re simple, and we remained ourselves.
Technically, we’ve sensed you felt rather comfortable from the first prime. What dancing experience did you have?
Frankly, I was a good actor because I wasn’t at all comfortable, at first. And I’m not much more s today. During the week I have doubts, and before each prime I’m terrified…. My dance experience? I took some classes for a shooting “Petits arrangements avec ma mère”, with Line Renaud. I had to breakdance and I had to learn the choreography. Except for that, I had never danced before, even less these kind of dances.
Reveal things, I’m not sure. But it’s true that I’m not playing a role, I’m not Benjamin Vidal of Pep’s, I’m myself. And, there, there’s no bluff: the guy you see in the primes of “Danse avec les stars” is the guy I am every day. I try to smile, I joke, and I have fun as well as being serious and rigorous with work.
