Because there is a shortage of dancing competition shows on network television, ABC is introducing another one. Dance Machine takes ordinary people who are great dancers and puts them in a competition for a large cash prize.
Every episode of Dance Machine features six contestants. For the premiere episode, the contestants are Elvis Tognia (a 31 year old cashier from Cameroon, Africa), Michelle Garcia (a 28 year old fashion designer from Inglewood, CA), Vinny Cardinale (a 25 year old circus acrobat from Monterey, CA), Jeff Kelly (a 23 year old mixed martial artist from Las Vegas, NV), Sandra Purpuro (a 38 year old student from Clifton, NJ) and Dan Nier ( a 33 year old PE teacher from Rochester, NY)
Dance Machine is hosted by Jason Kennedy of E! News, and DJ Rodney Perry plays the music. Dance Machine premieres on Friday, June 27 from 8 PM to 9 PM ET on ABC.
