PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 11 -- From sound stage to center stage, see what it takes to make it as a professional dancer when MTV premieres the new music reality series, "DanceLife" on Monday, January 15th at 10:30 PM (ET/PT). The 8-episode series which featured and is executive produced by Jennifer Lopez, follows the lives of six dancers trying to achieve their dreams and break into the grueling and unforgiving world of professional dance. From auditioning for that key spot in a music video to performing live with top artists, Nelly Furtado and Ashlee Simpson, MTV is there for each dancer's every move. The glory isn't always there, but their love for dance is what keeps the drive alive.

Beginning her career as a dancer herself, no one knows the struggle to make it as a professional dancer better than Jennifer Lopez. As executive producer, Jennifer played an integral role in selecting and auditioning the dancers and will make cameo appearances throughout the season. Special guest appearances in "DanceLife" include Ashlee Simpson, Nelly Furtado, Omarion, and the Pussycat Dolls. The series will also feature music by Jennifer Lopez, Robin Thicke, Kelis, Young Love, Platinum Weird, Home Video, The Cloud Room, and Ror-Shak.

In this intensely competitive world of professional dance, MTV viewers will meet the following dream seekers:

Staci

The former Pussycat Doll member who has been dancing professionally for over a decade has performed with Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Christina Aguilera and her film credits include "Collateral," and "Charlie's Angels II," but her career ambitions aren't limited to dance as she is betting it all on her new CD.

Jersey

The former Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleader and Las Vegas showgirl from no surprise, New Jersey, has trained in everything from acrobatics to ballet, and is hoping that dance will be her ticket to fame and her way out of debt.

Nolan

After teaching himself how to dance by watching Janet Jackson videos, he moved to LA from Wyoming with no car, no connections, no money and a dark past and is hoping his hard work and talent will lead him to a big break and a big paycheck, but for the moment he's not giving up his day job.

Blake

The Toronto native is quickly becoming one of the most sought after dancers in Hollywood with already a long list of credits including dancing for Madonna, starring in "Rent" and doing commercials for iPod and GAP ... only problem is he knows it and he makes sure everyone else does too.

Kenny

The former baseball player from Boston, with a "Southey" accent to prove it, got his first big break dancing with Jennifer Lopez and has since danced in videos with Madonna, Mariah Carey and Prince, but he might not make it if he doesn't get serious and drop his partying antics.

Celestina

With almost no professional training, this striking beauty and natural talent originally from Nigeria has become a music video "It Girl" after recently co-starring in Prince's "Black Sweat" video. The driven Hip-Hop hottie sees dance as a first step to building her empire.

MTV Tr3s will also be premiering "DanceLife" for the young American Latino audience beginning January 23rd at 5:30 PM (ET)/4:30 PM (CT). The 8-episode series will be followed by the exclusive Tr3s companion program, "Dance Adictos," which will include short form vignettes featuring the series star dancers showing our audience today's hottest dances to the rhythms and music of Mexican band, Kinky. After the step by step instructional, the dancers will introduce the MTV Tr3s audience to the best new dance videos to practice their new moves at home. "Dance Adictos" weekly dance instructional clips will also be available on http://www.mtvtr3s.com and Verizon Wireless' service V-cast.

MTV.com (http://www.dancelife.mtv.com) will be the comprehensive online source for "DanceLife" where fans can meet the cast, view photos and listen to exclusive playlists including, the best dance videos and Jennifer Lopez's music videos. Starting January 5th, fans can catch a "Preview Special," which will feature the series trailer. Immediately following its on-air debut, fans will also experience exclusive footage of "DanceLife," with casting profiles on Jennifer Lopez, the six cast members, and two of the featured choreographers. Also available each week will be special video segments such as "Dance 101," where viewers can learn how to bust a hot dance move just like the dancers on the show as well as the "Dance of the Week," which will showcase stylized dance segments from each episode. Cast members' music video playlists will also be available online after the on-air premiere.

On MTV VOD, fans can view the trailer and cast profiles. Stylized Dance Solos will showcase each cast members' style and personality. Plus viewers will get to learn the moves themselves with 3 sets of instructional videos -- Club Moves, Choreographed Routines, and Latino flavored MTV Tr3s instructionals.
