Our MC is Talia Rayna. Join her every week as we narrow down the competition to get to the top 50 quarter-finalists, then the top 10 semi-finalists and then the 3 finalists who get to travel to Scottsdale for the finale.

The top 3 finalists will get to go to a live television shoot at WM Studios in Las Vegas, Nevada where they will meet Talia and the rest of the crew.


Dance Crew: 

Kids Dance Crew LessonsSince most entertainers need to be triple threats (singers, dancers, actors) our show adds new dance moves that you can watch on TV and then learn at home.

Our Step Up 2 the Mic dancers are Katrina and Sloane and their crew of talented dance friends. These teen dancers host Fit for a Feast – a website and Youtube channel with over 42 million views.

They are also the hosts for the online dance lesson site Dance Crusher / Hip Hop Crusher. They will be joined by other talented dancers to perform different styles of dance on many of the episodes. . You can watch them on the show and then learn the fresh moves by checking out the tutorial on our website.
