The dancers will face a panel of celebrity judges, including ballroom dance champion Jean-Marc Généreux, perhaps best known as a choreographer on the U.S. competition reality show So You Think You Can Dance and as a judge on the Canadian version of the hit show.  He will be joined by CTV News Anchor Mutsumi Takahashi, CJAD 800 morning man Andrew Carter, and international dance champion Meryem Pearson, before the audience has a chance to vote.
