The Moves

Armoza Formats Brings ‘The Moves’

Israel’s Armoza Formats, part of ITV Studios, has launched The Moves, a new dance makeover format, first teased at ITV’s Formats Festival in February

The 60-to-90-minute format puts a “feel-good spin” on the dance genre by putting “every-day people at the forefront” as they learn new dance moves.

This new release from Armoza Formats follows the recent launch of Beat The Grid, a game show that was designed to be produced safely during lockdown with the aid of CGI-technology.

In each episode of The Moves four all-star dance coaches go head-to-head to prove who can give the most amazing dance makeover of the night. Contestants of all ages, and all in need of some “new moves” show the coaches what they can do. The dance experts then select which contestants they want to mentor in the second part of the show, before the duos reveal their makeovers in front of a live studio audience – who get to judge which makeover was the best.

Nehama Cohen, head of development at Armoza Formats, said: “We are pleased to bring a new, positive and fun spin on the dance genre. The Moves celebrates dancing as a natural way of expressing ourselves and our feelings – whether you are nine or 90, anyone can participate in this format.”

Quintus Studios Expands Factual Catalogue

International distribution and media outfit Quintus Studios has added a raft of factual content from France and the UK to its catalogue.
