The concept and dancing is awesome! As far as being kid friendly, it would be much more kid friendly if the host and female judge wore clothes that weren't designed to force little boys to look at their breasts and teaching little girls that promiscuous dress is appropriate. REALLY?!?!?! The show is kid friendly - the attire of the females on the show is absolutely not!!! Dresses with split down to the belly so breasts visible, strapless top so looks like topless during close ups. Do better!

Dance Monsters Is The Best, Chuck Out The Rest!

CGI (computer generated imagery.) Is a popular way to animate characters, Thus this show contain CGI, which is my favourite type of animation. My favourite hobby is dancing and my favourite type of animation is CGI. Put that together and you get Dance Monsters! A show containing CGI Monsters dancing in a competition which is fun to watch. Here are good and bad stuff about this show. Good Stuff About Dance Monsters - The performances are heart warming and joyous to see. The choreography is way better than I imagined. I like how scared the humans are in their everyday lives about dancing but with the help of their inner dance monster. They brave enough to win $250.000. I also like how mature and emotional the judges are by the end of each performances and the good vocabulary they added. Perfectly good for learning English. Anything Bad? - Dance Monsters is perfectly safe to watch for kids and family, However There are some inappropriate and sexuliezed choreography. For example in Episode 1, Peaches (A Peach Colored Dance Monster.) was seen doing a 3 second booty twerk. Lele is seen wearing “sexy.” clothes and some contestants shook their butts and show their sass. There are some swear words that are censored in some of the songs. There are frequent uses of "A$$." and "Damn." The rest of the show is safe and pretty fun to watch. I give this show a 4/5 rating. If your admire dancing and reality shows. I would recommend watching this show.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This colorful and entertaining series, reminiscent of the singing competition Alter Ego, features talented dancers who struggle to perform in public hiding behind holographic images as they move and groove. To help them feel comfortable, audiences only briefly get to see the Dance Monsters dancing back stage, but don't get to see their faces until they are eliminated. Meanwhile, the holographs themselves are fun and convincingly life-like. The judges are positive and supportive and the audience is energetic. If you like dancing or lighthearted game shows designed to make folks feel good, Dance Monsters will be worth tuning into.
