Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

In a lot of ways, Your Chance to Dance is a throwback to competition-oriented game shows of the 1970s and '80s, bringing to mind long-forgotten TV classics like Dance Fever (which tested competitors' disco skills) and Puttin' on the Hits (which put their lip-synching prowess to the test). But that retro feel is part of the problem, making the show seem woefully out of touch. Even the logo and theme song feel dated -- and it doesn't help that most of the songs contestants are dancing to haven't been on the hit lists in quite some time.

Of course, that doesn't necessarily take away from the fun; the dancers, at least, seem to be having a better than average time. But will viewers at home be equally entertained since they're not calling the shots with phoned-in votes? In the end, they might vote with their remotes.
