Global Agency today announced that it has acquired international distribution rights to dance show format “Dance With Me” from Studio Glam.
The format was created by Ami Glam, CEO of Studio Glam, one of the leading TV content development and production companies in Israel. Global Agency is partnering with Studio Glam on Dance With Me for the global market and the show will be soft launched at NATPE MIAMI 2015.
“Dance With Me” brings together the world’s professional dancers and talented amateur enthusiasts. One by one, contestants go on stage to perform a dance for 90 seconds in front of eight professional dancers who must choose whom to partner with for the final round. However, during the audition phase, for 30 seconds the contestants dance behind a back-lit screen with only their silhouette visible. After 30 seconds they will be fully revealed, a unique visual twist that makes a memorable introduction to the amateurs. During this audition round, each of the professional dancers will choose two contestants to move forward with.
Izzet Pinto, CEO of Global Agency, said: “Dance With Me is a brand new dance show format which we’re confident will be extremely popular around the world and the format is a perfect match for both television and social media platforms. In addition, with its great structure with peak excitement levels, the format is a top choice to market globally. As Global Agency, we are very happy to be working with Studio Glam in this project. Their ability to create intriguing formats makes them the best partner for Dance With Me”.
Ami Glam, creator of the format and CEO of Studio Glam, added: “Dance With Me is a uniqe dance format that presents for the first time professional dancers dancing with amateurs. We believe there is still a place for a new big dancing shows in the international market and now is the right time to bring it. We are very pleased to work with Global Agency and to add a new format to the Studio that continues to be a home for original and new creation for international market."
