Plot Synopsis

Hosted by DWTS Season 25's Mirrorball trophy winner Jordan Fisher and finalist Frankie Muniz, DANCING WITH THE STARS: JUNIORS is an elimination competition series that begins with 12 celebrity kids, who are partnered with professional junior ballroom dancers to perform choreographed routines, which are judged by choreographer Mandy Moore, professional dancer Val Chmerkovskiy and DWTS: ATHLETES champion Adam Rippon. As they vie to win the Mirrorball trophy, each team has help along their journey by some of DWTS acclaimed adult pros and troupe members, who act as mentors to offer guidance and support. The studio audience vote is combined with the judges' scores to determine who goes home at the end of each episode. The inaugural season's lineup of celebrity kid dancers includes a Screen Actors Guild Award-nominated actor, a professional skateboarder, an ABC comedy star, a runway model, two Disney Channel stars and the youngest boy to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
