Dance Revolution is hosted by super-excited (and that's no joke) DJ Rick (Rick Adams), whose hyperactive silliness keeps both studio and home audiences chuckling. Inspired by the hugely popular video game Dance Dance Revolution, this energetic show actively encourages viewers to "get vertical" and try some moves of their own, and frequent pop-ups in the corner of the screen remind viewers that dance is a great way to get some exercise and blow off some steam.

Tweens will enjoy this fun-filled half hour of watching their peers strut their stuff. The show also offers a refreshingly positive portrayal of competition -- laced with good sportsmanship -- that's often lost amid the squabbling and trash-talking usually seen in reality TV.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
