Dance Your Ass Off was a reality dance competition television series that aired on Oxygen from 2009 to 2010. The show was hosted by actress and comedian Lisa Ann Walter, with professional dancers Danny Teeson and Lee Wall serving as judges. Each episode of the show featured a group of contestants, who were divided into two teams and coached by a professional dancer. The contestants ranged in age, background, and dance experience, but they all shared a common goal: to lose weight and improve their dance skills.

To encourage the contestants to push themselves to their limits, each week featured a different dance genre, ranging from salsa and hip-hop to disco and ballroom. The contestants had to learn a new routine and perform it in front of a live audience, with their scores determined by the judges.

Throughout the competition, the contestants were also challenged to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, with weekly weigh-ins and nutrition education. The ultimate goal was to lose weight and improve their dance skills, with the winner of the competition being crowned the "Dance Your Ass Off Champion."

In addition to the competition itself, the show also featured personal interviews with the contestants, showcasing their struggles with weight loss and their reasons for participating in the show. The contestants often shared emotional stories of how their weight had affected their lives, and how they hoped to use dance as a way to transform their bodies and their self-confidence.

Dance Your Ass Off was praised for its positive message of body positivity and transformation, with many viewers inspired by the contestants' stories and impressed by their newfound dance skills. The show also attracted a range of celebrity guest judges, including Carmen Electra, Mel B, and Lacey Schwimmer.

Despite its popularity, the show only lasted for two seasons before being cancelled in 2010. However, it remains a beloved classic in the reality dance competition genre, and its legacy continues to inspire viewers to dance their way to a healthier, happier life.
