5 kids take on a big challenge
At the moment 14 celebrities are fighting again for the title “Dancing Star” in “Let’s Dance” – but soon kids will also face this challenge. In the TVNOW original “Let’s Dance – Kids”, five celebrity children compete against each other and become mini-performers together with young dance coaches. They are supported by popular “Let’s Dance” professional dancers. Here we show who takes part and how the four-part show works! And of course the well-known specialist jury will also be there. How much the jury and the parents of the kids are looking forward to the show is shown in the video above.
Start date, jury, moderators
Dancing for the title “Dancing Sternchen 2021” starts on Friday, April 9th, 2021 on TVNOW. There are four shows, each with their own exciting motto. Victoria Swarovski and Daniel Hartwich will moderate the episodes of the TVNOW original, and Joachim Llambi, Motsi Mabuse and Jorge González will judge the mini-performers’ dance duel. How strictly will Joachim Llambi judge the little ones and which juror will be moved to tears? The standard or Latin dances are rated as usual with points between 1 and 10.
And these are the kids who are there!

Mini professionals and dance coaches
Of course, the little ones don’t step into the spotlight alone. Professional dance partners teach the kids the steps of waltz, cha cha cha and co.
