Recent years have brought in a crop of competitive dance shows, reality series that follow professional dancers in their daily lives. Want some drama and comedy mixed in with your dancers? The shows feature all kinds of different dance styles, including ballet, ballroom, and hip hop. For fans of dancing in all its many forms, dance competitions can be a great escape. This list of dancing TV show names includes many of the most well-known dance TV shows on the air, but it is by no means complete.

What are the best dance TV shows? Television dance shows' popularity continues to soar. One great example: ABC's Dancing With the Stars, which pairs celebrities with professional dance partners, has consistently been among the highest rated network programs in recent years. The celebrity/professional pair competes for the coveted Mirror Ball trophy. The show is actually based on the British TV series Strictly Come Dancing. Other popular TV dance shows that feature competition include FOX's So You Think You Can Dance and Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew on MTV.

Dance reality TV shows include Lifetime's Dance Moms, which follows the lives of young dancers, and the mothers that push them (sometimes, too hard). The CW's Breaking Pointe follows members of Salt Lake City's Ballet West, as they endure the challenges of dancing for a professional company.
