The show's title comes from the circle on the dance floor where the dancers competed. Five episodes were taped each day with hundreds of dancers all vying for their chance to battle in the 3-6-0!
The energy was frenetic in-studio and on-screen creating a unique and fast-tempo direction which amped up the energy while showcasing the dance moves.
Claude Brooks executive produced with Richard Brian DiPirro directing. On the final day of taping, Brooks and DiPirro battled it out on-stage in a dance-off that can only be described as a slaughter. Luckily, no video records of this event have survived.
