What is Flirty Dancing about?
The show is a dance based dating series that features one of the most unique concepts on television. The contestants are taught half a dance routine. They are supposed to learn that individually at first. Later they meet their blind dates and together they perform the dance they have learned. They do not exchange any information like name, age or profession and do not indulge in any talk at all. Based on the synchronization and chemistry that they feel during the dance, they later decide whether they want to meet again for a proper date or not.
The twist, however, is that every contestant has two options of dates to choose from. The one main participant performs individual and separate dance sets with both the other contestants and chooses the one he or she likes better.
