Twelve dance enthusiasts who battle the bulge will battle each other on the dance floor AND on the scale for a shot at the $100,000 grand prize.

Frustrated by a lifetime of failed diets and workout fads, these contestants leave their friends and family behind and move into the "Dance Your Ass Off" loft for 10 weeks - determined to change their lives forever.

Each contestant will be paired with a professional dance partner who will train them for their weekly stage performances - ranging from hip hop, to tango and even pole dancing!

Then they'll shake and rattle their rolls in front of a live studio audience and a panel of expert judges: choreographer Danny Teeson, dancer/choreographer Mayte Garcia and dancer/actress Lisa Ann Walter.

The judges will score the routines, and then the contestants will weigh in to reveal their weekly weight loss. The dance score and the weight loss are combined for an overall score, which will determine who is sent home.

"Dance Your Ass Off" has assembled a world-class team of weight loss specialists, including Dr. Robert Huizenga (NBC's "Biggest Loser"), nutrition specialist Meg Werner Moreta, R.D., and Crunch Fitness trainer Lee Wall. This team will ensure the contestants reach their maximum weight loss potential and undergo the ultimate lifestyle transformation.

But even with all this support, it won't be easy. In a nod to real-life temptations, the contestants' kitchen contains a "Cheat Pantry" loaded with the very snacks and goodies that helped land the contestants on the show.

For some, the lure of the "Cheat Pantry" might just be too great, and their dance skills will have to save them at elimination! With $100,000 and a healthier life on the line, who will have the last dance?

This 10-episode series is produced by 495 Productions with SallyAnn Salsano ("Design Star," "Tool Academy") serving as executive producer and Joel Zimmer ("Nashville Star," "America's Got Talent") as co-executive producer.
