Dancing with the Stars: Juniors is a spinoff of the popular show Dancing with the Stars, which premiered on ABC in late 2018. This show features young celebrity contestants between the ages of 9 and 14 and pairs them with professional dancers to compete in a ballroom dance competition. The show is presented by Jordan Fisher and Frankie Muniz, both of whom are former contestants on the original Dancing with the Stars show, and the judges are Mandy Moore, who is a choreographer, dancer and director.

The premise of the show is similar to the original, but with a much younger cast of contestants. The show features ten couples who are trained by professional dancers and work together to perform in different ballroom dance styles, including the cha-cha, samba, jive, tango, and foxtrot. The show is a competition, and each week the judges score each couple's performance, and the audience gets to vote for their favorite.

The show is full of energy and excitement, and the young contestants bring a fresh and enthusiastic energy to the dance floor. The show often features contestants who have never danced before and are learning the ropes for the first time. The show's opening and closing numbers are often group performances that showcase the talents of all the contestants, and the dances between the couples are always dramatic and emotional.

The show's hosts, Jordan Fisher and Frankie Muniz, are both former contestants on the original Dancing with the Stars, and they bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the show. Fisher is a singer and actor who won the 25th season of the original show, and Muniz is a former child actor who also competed in season 25. They bring a youthful energy and enthusiasm to the show that helps to keep the young contestants motivated and engaged.

The show's judges are also key players in the competition. Mandy Moore is a renowned choreographer and dancer and has worked on many popular movies, TV shows, and music videos. She brings her expertise to the show and provides valuable feedback and criticism to the contestants. Other judges have included Adam Rippon, a former Olympic medalist in figure skating, and guest judge Valentin Chmerkovskiy, a professional dancer who has won the original show.

While the show is primarily focused on the young contestants and their dancing abilities, there are also many emotional moments that help to keep viewers engaged. Many of the contestants have overcome adversity in their lives, and their stories are shared with the audience, providing a deeper understanding of their motivations and personalities.

Overall, Dancing with the Stars: Juniors is an exciting and entertaining show that showcases the talents of young dancers and provides a fun and engaging competition for viewers of all ages. With experienced hosts, skilled judges, and an enthusiastic cast of contestants, the show is sure to provide entertainment and inspiration for years to come.
