Choreographer/Actor Cris Judd ('Unfabulous'), Tony(R) Award Winner Ben Vereen ('Pippin') and Singer/Actress Vitamin C ('The Amanda Show') Named as Judges of Lifetime's Dance Competition Series, 'Your Mama Don't Dance,' Premiering Friday, February 29

Hosted By Ian Ziering ('Dancing With The Stars'), Series Pairs Young Professional Dancers With One of Their Parents for an Eight Week Competition Where America Determines the Winner

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 26 -- Choreographer/actor Cris Judd ("Unfabulous), Tony(R) Award-winning actor/dancer Ben Vereen ("Pippin") and singer/actress Vitamin C ("The Amanda Show") will serve as the judges in Lifetime's first-ever dance competition series, "Your Mama Don't Dance." The show teams young professional dancers with one of their parents as they compete for $100,000 in cash and prizes and premieres Friday, February 29, at 9PM (ET/PT). The eight week series is hosted by Ian Ziering ("Dancing with the Stars," "Beverly Hills, 90210").

"Your Mama Don't Dance" takes the typical "dance show" to a whole new level by exploring the sometimes love-hate but always complicated relationship between kids and their parents. Some of America's hottest dancers auditioned for a chance to be a part of a new dance competition show under the pseudonym "Dance Nation," but none had any idea what was in store. On January 26, 2008, contestants gathered at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles where they soon discovered shocking news -- that they would be competing with a partner and that their partner would be one of their parents!

Now, these up-and-coming dancers will be counting on their parents to learn the moves to help them realize their dreams, while their parents will undoubtedly feel the pressure to work harder than ever to keep in step and not let their kids down. Each week the judges will put the two lowest-rated teams on the chopping block, then it's up to America to determine which team stays in the competition via phone, text and online votes on myLifetime.com, as monitored by the firm, Telescope Inc. The competition concludes Friday, April 18th in a live finale extravaganza where three teams face off in front of the judges and America one final time. The winning team will be announced at the end of the show following a live vote.

Cris Judd is a well known dancer, choreographer and actor. He most recently guest-starred on the Nickelodeon's "Unfabulous" with Emma Roberts and appeared on episodes of "Eve," "Half and Half" and "Everybody Loves Raymond." He made his television debut on the ABC reality series, "I'm a Celebrity -- Get Me Out of Here," where he won the title of 'King of the Jungle' and $200,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. He was also host of the WE dance series, "Dirty Dancing." Judd made an acting cameo in the film, "Bringing Down the House" and served as the choreographer for Steve Martin in his dance scenes. Judd also coached Nicole Kidman her dancing scenes for "The Human Stain."

Ben Vereen is a Tony(R) Award-winning actor, dancer and singer. Nominated for a Tony for his role in "Jesus Christ Superstar," Vereen won the award for his lead role in "Pippin." He's since starred on Broadway's "I'm Not Rappaport," "Fosse," "Chicago," and as the Wizard of Oz in Broadway's "Wicked."
