Dance Fever is an American musical variety series that aired weekly in syndication from January 1979 to September 1987. The series was created and produced by Merv Griffin and written by Tony Garofalo.
Deney Terrio hosted the series until September 1985, where he was replaced by Adrian Zmed. The show's announcer for the first two years was Freeman King until September 1980 where he was replaced by Charlie O'Donnell.
During Terrio's tenure as host, the show's theme was performed by a musical team called Triple "S" Connection.
Dance Fever is an American variety game show hosted by Eric Nies. The three celebrity judges were Carmen Electra, Jamie King, and MC Hammer. The two-hour series premiere aired on ABC Family on July 13, 2003.
In Canada, MuchMusic had the rights to air the series. Dance Fever also aired on Family the same day as the ABC Family airings, becoming the only program on the channel to take commercial breaks during the show.
Three years later, tapdancing twins Sean and John became contestants on NBC's America's Got Talent. They did not make it to the finals, but were highly praised. Live in Color, a hip-hop booty-shaking dance crew from Florida, were the first and the only winner since the series did not continue.
Strictly Dance Fever is a British television programme, broadcast on BBC One on Saturday evenings. It was an amateur dance talent competition, hosted by Graham Norton, which ran during Spring 2005 and Spring 2006. It was, in many ways, similar to the BBC's popular Strictly Come Dancing, a celebrity based dance contest also broadcast on Saturday evenings. On 12 December 2006, the BBC announced that Strictly Dance Fever had been axed in favour of the Andrew Lloyd Webber talent search, How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?.
