Dance Kids is a Filipino reality dance competition show on ABS-CBN network. It premiered on November 14, 2015 replacing Pinoy Big Brother: 737 and was shown twice a week every Saturday and Sunday evenings. It was broadcast internationally by The Filipino Channel. It ended on February 7, 2016 announcing the Filipino-Canadian duo Lucky Aces as the grand champion.[1] It is hosted by Robi Domingo and Alex Gonzaga.[2] Dance Kids Season 2 will be premiered sometime in 2019.



The judges, dubbed as "Dance Masters" of the show:

The Try Outs[edit]

In the first phase of the competition named as the "Try Outs", kids will perform in front of the judges known as the "Dance Masters." Performers can come in as a solo act, duo, or as a group.

The acts should be able to impress the Dance Masters at the end of their performance. If a Dance Master is impressed, he/she should stomp on the Stomp Pad. In the event that they get three (3) stomps from the Dance Masters within their performance, the act will automatically make it to next phase of the competition.

However, if the act could not complete all three stomps at the end of their performance, it won't be the end just yet. The Dance Master/s who initially stomped for the act, will have the opportunity to convince their co-Dance Masters to give the acts a chance. If one further declines, then the competition ends for the aspiring dancer or dance group.

The Dance Masters are only allowed to give their unanimous votes 32 times, for the 32 acts who will compete on the next level.

The Dance Offs[edit]

The "Dance Off" is the second level of the competition where two acts who made it from the "Try-outs", are chosen to dance against each other. The "Dance Masters" will then chose who among the two acts better by stomping the stomp pad. The act who gets the most stomp will be the one who will go to the "Step Up", the next level of the competition.

The Step Ups[edit]

Acts who made it into the "Step Ups" will go to the Quarter Finals, then Semi-finals and ultimately to the grand finals.
