The search for America’s Best Dancer is on!  Super-choreographer Wade Robson, who has masterminded moves for Britney Spears and *NSYNC, has set his sights on finding the best amateur dancer in America by launching “The Wade Robson Project” on MTV.

The person with the best moves will moonwalk away with the grand prize of $100,000 from Juice Batteries, a $10,000 wardrobe provided by Union Bay, and the dance opportunity of a lifetime.

With the help of your votes, he will find the dancer with the best moves in the country.  Each weekday afternoon, dancers hand-picked from auditions held around the country will compete head-to-head and be judged by music celebrities such as JC Chasez, Nick Carter, Justin Guarini, and more.  At the end of each show, the home viewer will get to vote on who stays on to fight another day and who dances their way back home.

The field will be narrowed down to 20 quarter finalists and then 12 semi-finalists who will compete on four live semi-final specials. The series will culminate with a two-hour live results special, where the top four vote getters will perform live with Wade in specially choreographed numbers and dance along with celebrity music performances, all hoping for that $100,000 grand prize and the title of Best Dancer in America!

A prodigy before he knew what the word meant, executive producer and host Wade Robson has a list of clients that include Britney Spears and *NSYNC.  At the ripe old age of 19, Wade's work has been featured in television, motion pictures, music videos, sold out concerts and awards ceremonies.   the time he was nine, he had appeared in three of Michael Jackson's biggest videos: "Black or White," "Jam" and "Heal the World."  Then came the Academy Awards performances, television spots, rap albums, music writing and production, dance classes (teaching them, that is), acting roles in major motion pictures and choreography.

“The Wade Robson Project” is executive produced by Robson with Kathy Cotter and directed by Richard DiPirro.  The show airs afternoons on MTV and on MTV channels around the world.
