Dança dos Famosos is a Brazilian entertainment reality television show airing on Rede Globo television network and filmed live from the Projac studios in Rio de Janeiro.

The show is based on the United Kingdom BBC Television series Strictly Come Dancing, however it is an unofficial spin-off.[1]


The show pairs a number of celebrities with professional ballroom dancers who each week compete against each other in a competition to impress a panel of judges and the viewing audience in order to survive potential elimination.[2]

Through telephone voting, viewers vote who they would like to stay, the results of the poll being combined with the ranking of the panel of judges.

The show is broadcast live on Rede Globo on Sundays evenings, and it is presented by Faustão and Talitha Morete. The judging panel changes every week and it is formed by three artistic judges and two professional judges.

The concept of the show is to pair a celebrity with a professional dancer in an attempt to win a high score from a panel of five judges and then a high number of votes from the audience.


The following are the dances performed by couples on Dança dos Famosos.
