Do you like to dance? Or do you like to watch dance shows? What about Dancing with the Stars season 30 episode 1? Firstly, it’s the long-running celebrity dance competition that began in 2005 and keeps on going! Now hosted by Tyra Banks, it runs in quite a simple format. A celebrity pairs up with a professional dancer and they come up with a routine. That routine must impress a panel of judges and audience votes, and they move on to the next round. It’s a fun format and a great show to watch with the family.
With a few changes this season, no audience because of COVID, and Tyra Banks replacing Tom Bergeron as host, Dancing with the Stars embarks on season 30. Moreover, the producers claim that the show will embark on what they say is “a new creative direction” and with the addition of supermodel Tyra Banks, ABC plans to develop the franchise a little bit further with a few things coming our way. The format of the competition remains the same.
