A Las Vegas-based Filipina American mother-daughter team is vying for a $100,000 grand prize in a new CBS family dance competition series, Come Dance with Me, that premieres tonight, Friday, April 15. Team Emelyn and Nicole Yniguez are one of 12 teams who were sequestered in Australia to film this series.
Grammy Award-winning songwriter Philip Lawrence hosts the series which was created and is executive produced by the stars of CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles stars Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, and 3 Ball Productions. The judges are actress/dancer Jenna Dewan, professional celebrity dancer Dexter Mayfield, and hip hop choreographer Tricia Miranda. Throughout the season, each duo will learn and perform different styles of dance.
