The British reality show Flirty Dancing makes two strangers learn a dance and perform it together. It’s insane and getting a U.S. version on Fox.

Three singles enter. One couple leaves. Each contestant learns two dances — one for each of their possible matches — and must perform the routines when they first meet their partner. After both dances are finished, the main contestant decides which of the two partners they want to go on a first date with. The series premiere featured Octavius a choir teacher and Erin a hairdresser as the main single contestants. Their prospective suitors are described only briefly and have little say in choosing the specifics of the dance, even in one case where a female contestant expressed strong opposition to the amount of intimate touching the choreography required.

In November, more than , Americans and counting watched a clip from a British reality show called Flirty Dancing and collectively lost their minds. As if the name of the series wasn’t quite extra in itself, Twitter user menamphetamine , who initially posted the clip, helpfully described the show as “a blind dating show where the couple are taught a dance separately and they perform it together when they meet for the first time.

Lo and behold, America has picked up on this incredible premise and will be releasing their own version of Flirty Dancing on FOX.

About the Show. Complete strangers are taught a dance routine, then meet for the first time on a blind date at a breathtaking location, as they dance.

The show originated in the U. The network hopes it will find similar success with U. Former World of Dance host Jenna Dewan plays matchmaker on the show, which features one person dancing two separate choreographed routines with two potential love interests. No words are spoken, as the only form of communication is dance. The breathtaking settings for the dances are some of Los Angeles’s most iconic landmarks, like the Hollywood Bowl and Grand Park.

It’s like a reality dating show meets the film La La Land. The show isn’t just a fun spin on existing dating shows, it also helps with those who have struggled with traditional methods of finding that special someone. For example one romantic hopeful named Erin has a high-pitched voice which makes her insecure when she meets people, so she has had trouble dating.

Jenna Dewan Explains How She’s Bringing Back ‘Old-School Romance’ on ‘Flirty Dancing’ (Exclusive)

Updated: Dec 22, This article was updated on Dec. There’s a new dance show coming to FOX, but it’s a fresh category that has never been seen before in the U. The show is being adapted from the hit U. The premise of the show is curious since it’s uncharted territory in the reality-TV realm.

Hosted by choreographer Ashley Banjo, Flirty Dancing puts its own spin on the classic blind date format: potential couples are separated from the.

The year-old single mom had grown weary trying to meet someone special online and decided to take a yearlong, self-imposed break from romance. She was skeptical. Then she pulled up a clip from the original British version of the series, featuring two men strutting joyfully up the stairs and through the galleries of the Tate Britain after dark. How do we bring that romance back to it? The American version, hosted by dancer-actress Jenna Dewan, adds a competitive twist: One person dances a different routine with each of two potential matches, then decides which person will get a second date.

Only then do they get to speak with their dance partner — or learn anything about them. The details of the routine are customized to the participants. In one routine, she is lifted into the air by her partner. She took time off from her job with the Girl Scouts to train with Dewan and choreographer Travis Wall, waking early each morning to practice — an experience she likens to therapy.

Laughter, tears, all of it.

This Dating Show is Also a Dancing Competition

Their grins are wide, their falls are trusting, their spins are ecstatic.

Their very first meeting is a dance. Sharp, 42, said in a recent phone interview, recalling that moment. Modified slightly for American audiences, the show is based on a British series of the same name, now in its second season on Channel 4.

Still, in the American version, there is an element of competition: One person searching for love dances with two potential matches — a different duet with each — and chooses one partner to see again. The British version, more straightforward, pairs two people who can decide to show up for a second date, or not. The actress and dancer Jenna Dewan serves as the host and an earnest matchmaker, standing by in the studio as contestants learn their routines and greeting them in the flushed, breathless moments after their dance dates.

Wall, Tyce Diorio, Kathryn Burns and other big names from the commercial dance industry, to get them feeling comfortable and confident in the span of just a few days. Sharp, featured in Episode 2, said that in addition to rehearsing with Mr. Wall, she practiced at home, with coaching from her 9-year-old daughter.
