"Project Runway" Producers Plan Reality Dance Show

"Project Runway" Producers Plan Reality Dance Show

"Project Dance-off"? Not quite. But Bravo and Magical Elves, the producers behind "Project Runway" and "Top Chef," are teaming up for a new reality dance show called "Step It Up" that will challenge contestants to master styles from ballet to burlesque.

At first, it sounds a lot like "So You Think You Can Dance," but there are a few key differences. For one: All of the contestants are already professional dancers. For another, Bravo says this show will focus more on the dance industry and how contestants actually make it — or don't — at real auditions. And it sounds as though judges of some sort, as opposed to viewers at large, will be picking the winner. The specific structure hasn't been revealed, but the dancers will be auditioning for a range of parts — "whether it's a music video one week or a Vegas spectacular the next."

Sure, Bravo's had some not-so-great reality ventures lately ("Top Design," anyone?), but the Magical Elves producers have never done me wrong so far. Between "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Dancing with the Stars," do you think there's room for another dance show on TV?

I'll definitely watch this one. I don't like Dancing With The Stars, but am addicted to So You Think You Can Dance. There's always room for yet one more dance show as far as I'm concerned.

mellybean i agree with you on watching SYTYCD more than DWTS. actually i don't even watch DWTS since really are they "stars?" not in my eyes, more like has-beens or people who need a career boost. okay that was just mean. lol. but yeah i think there will always be more room for dance!

Yay! The more dance on TV, the better. And Top Design was a guilty pleasure. :)

I love dance shows... So You Think You Can Dance more so than Dancing With the Stars (though I watch both...). I enjoy watching the pros - or even the aspiring pros - more than random soap stars.
