From sound stage to center stage, see what it takes to make it as a professional dancer when MTV premieres the new music reality series, DanceLife on Monday, January 15th at 10:30PM (ET/PT). The 8-episode series which featured and is executive produced by Jennifer Lopez, follows the lives of six dancers trying to achieve their dreams and break into the grueling and unforgiving world of professional dance. From auditioning for that key spot in a music video to performing live with top artists, Nelly Furtado and Ashlee Simpson, MTV is there for each dancer’s every move. The glory isn’t always there, but their love for dance is what keeps the drive alive.

Nolan After teaching himself how to dance by watching Janet Jackson videos, he
moved to LA from Wyoming with no car, no connections, no money and a
dark past and is hoping his hard work and talent will lead him to a big
break and a big paycheck, but for the moment he’s not giving up his day
Celestina With almost no professional training, this striking beauty and natural
talent originally from Nigeria has become a music video “It Girl” after
recently co-starring in Prince’s ‘Black Sweat’ video. The driven
Hip-Hot hottie sees dance as a first step to building her empire.
Jersey The former Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleader and Las Vegas showgirl from
no surprise, New Jersey, has trained in everything from acrobatics to
ballet, and is hoping that dance will be her ticket to fame and her way
out of debt.
Blake The Toronto native is quickly becoming one of the most sought after
dancers in Hollywood with already a long list of credits including
dancing for Madonna, starring in ‘Rent’ and doing commercials for iPod
and GAP…only problem is he knows it and he makes sure everyone else
Staci The former Pussycat Doll member who has been dancing professionally for
over a decade has performed with Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and
Christina Aguilera and her film credits include ‘Collateral,’ and
‘Charles Angels II,’ but her career ambitions aren’t limited to dance as
she is betting it all on her new CD.
Kenny The former baseball player from Boston with a “Southey” accent to prove
it, got his first big break dancing with Jennifer Lopez and has since
danced in videos with Madonna, Mariah Carey and Prince, but he might not
make it if he doesn’t get serious and drop his partying antics.
