Kids say: Not yet rated

Hosted by Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Ian Ziering, the show offers some fun dance numbers, as well as funny and often heartwarming interview and rehearsal footage that gives viewers a glimpse of some of the ups and downs that each parent-child pair experiences while living and practicing together. Audiences also learn more about how each pair's relationship has developed over time; some have grown stronger after overcoming obstacles like coping with divorce, battling mental illness, and dealing with homophobia.

Though the one-on-one interviews aren't very in-depth, some parents may find the issues they bring up a bit strong for young viewers. But overall, the series offers fun family entertainment. It demonstrates how parents can grow closer to their children at any age by participating in something their kids love to do. It also shows how much fun it can be for kids to spend time and share their passion with their parents. In the end, this competition show is one where everybody actually wins.

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.
