A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that All the Right Moves is a voyeuristic docuseries that follows four dancers' efforts to get a new dance company off the ground. Expect a fair amount of language ("damn," "ass," "bitch," with "f--k" and "s--t" bleeped) as tempers fly among the friendly but competitive cast, some sexual content (innuendo, kissing, and flirting,) and a lot of arguing when the co-creators' visions clash. On the upside, the show does offer a pretty realistic look at some of the hurdles that exist in starting and marketing a new business.

What's the Story?
Four professional dancers attempt to take their careers to the next level by starting their own dance company in ALL THE RIGHT MOVES. Celebrated choreographer Travis Wall teams up with Teddy Forance, Nick Lazzarini, and Kyle Robinson to create Shaping Sound, a ground-floor project that's the culmination of their longtime dreams. But as they soon find out, there's more to making dreams come true than hiring dancers and choreographing routines, and with opposing personalities, power struggles, and an uncertain supply of funding, there's no guarantee this dance project will have a curtain call.
Is It Any Good?
All the Right Moves is a predictable docuseries that plays up the interpersonal drama among this strong-willed, outspoken cast of professional dancers. Viewers who arrive at it hoping to see some inspiring modern dance will find themselves only partly satisfied, since the dancing that does take place is first-rate and highly entertaining, but it often plays second fiddle to head-butting among the cast.
On the positive side, the show does offer an intimate glimpse into the real-world workings of a start-up business, and the dancers struggle with familiar woes like securing sponsors, finding and maintaining talented employees, and setting themselves apart in a competitive market. Ultimately, though, the show's voyeuristic style doesn't have a lot to offer teens except some inflated egos and a lot of controversy, so it's better suited for grown-ups who can put this kind of behavior in context.
