Dance 360 (2004-2005) was a modern hip-hop television series in which different dancers competed to win 360 dollars and an Xbox or a cell phone from Boost Mobile. It was hosted by Fredro Starr, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Kel Mitchell with DJ K-Sly providing the beats for the dancers.

The dancers were selected from the audience at the beginning of the show, and they competed one-on-one, with the winner going on to the next round. They were judged by the level of audience applause. In addition to the prizes awarded, the winner was also given the last few seconds of the show to give "shout outs" to friends and family. The show's title comes from the circle on the dance floor where the dancers competed.

Host Kel Mitchell previously starred in the television show Kenan and Kel along with his friend Kenan Thompson for a four-year run. Host Fredro Starr previously played on the hit show Moesha playing one of her boyfriends, Q. Host Alfonso Ribeiro was best known for his role as Carlton Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. DJ K-Sly, whose real name is Kathleen Taylor is a Los Angeles-based DJ more known as a radio host.

The show was noted for its famous slogans: "Yo, Fredro, where you at?!", "Three six oooh", "Tag Your Man!*" and "Head To Head!".

Both hosts later starred in the straight-to-DVD film, Ganked in 2005.
