Get Ready for “Disney Fam Jam,” a Parent-and-Kid Dance Competition Show

October 14, 2019

If, like us, you’re obsessed with every move choreographer Phil Wright makes, then you know all about “The Parent Jam,” Wright’s workshop series that gets the whole family into dance class. Videos of the masterclasses, in which Wright teaches simple choreography to both parents and kids, have gone crazy-viral on YouTube. And it’s not hard to see why—they’re infectiously fun.

Now, Wright’s inspired idea is about to reach an even bigger audience: Disney Channel just ordered “Disney Fam Jam,” a family dance competition series based on “The Parent Jam.”

What do we know about the new show so far? “Disney Fam Jam” begins production in November, with Wright as one of the producers. It’ll feature two families competing in three rounds of dance battles in front of a live studio audience. There’ll be dance mentors guiding the contestants through each round (start your dream mentor casting now!). And given the Disney audience’s well-documented devotion to all things dance, it seems destined for success.
