Last summer, the Disney Channel hosted the wildly popular kids-only dance competition, Make Your Mark: Ultimate Dance Off: Shake It Up Edition. More than 28,000 audition videos were submitted online and six talented finalists were chosen. The finalists competed in a professionally-choreographed dance event telecast live on the Disney Channel, and the winners, a team of four dancers named AKSquared, were featured as spotlight dancers on an episode of Shake It Up.
Millions of Disney Channel fans tuned in for the 2011 Ultimate Dance Off and thousands more have eagerly waited for the opportunity to show off their dance moves in a new competition. GREAT NEWS! Disney has confirmed that MAKE YOUR MARK WILL RETURN IN JULY 2012 for a second edition of the competition series. Like last year’s Shake It Up Edition, the 2012 competition will feature an online audition period followed by an October telecast of the semi-finalist showdown.
