Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dance Monsters is a family-friendly, positive dance competition featuring people competing as avatars designed to look like cute monsters. Dances are choreographed to popular songs, and there's some mild innuendo in song lyrics and in some of the comments, most of which will go over young kids' heads.
Is It Any Good?
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.
