Turn Up and Dance showcases the freshest and most electrifying dance moves from inspirational street dancers. The contestants battle each other to impress the host, Chomee, resident judge, Dr Malinga as well as the studio audience.
Each week five dancers showcase their unique dance moves and stand a chance to win the coveted title of South Africa’s Hotstepa plus a cash prize. Once crowned the Hotstepa, the dancer gets a chance to defend the title for as long as they can hold on to it, week after week.
The five dancers battle it out in three elimination rounds. The vibrant in-studio audience has the power to influence who gets eliminated from the dance floor, and the final decision is made by Chomee and Dr Malinga. In the second round, the resident judge Dr Malinga demonstrates a dance move which the remaining contestants must incorporate into their freestyle routine.
