  1. Im 44 yr old 5"6 & 230lbs I tried to loss this weight for 5 yrs I have high blood pressure my knees buckles on me because my weight I always wanted yo be a dancer but after I had my 5 kids they left there package. Lol… this show is right up my alley for the 2014 casting

  2. It is my dream to be a cast member of Dance your A** Off. I am a 36 year old single mother of a 14 year old daughter and have been overweight for most of my life. I LOVE to dance and feel that this program would bring both of my dreams to fruition; loosing weight and dancing for all to see. I want my daughter to be able to look at me and see the real me under all of this weight. I am hoping, praying and believing that you would give me a shot at making my future so much brighter.

  3. I would love to be on Dance My Ass off. I am 25 years old, 4"11 and weigh over 200 lbs. I have been overweight all my life & I have pretty much been dealing with it. Losing weight was never a priority for me because I love the way I look. However, I always knew my weight was unhealthy. When it comes to dancing, I cannot be stopped. I always wanted to be the girl who Danced in the Missy Elliot videos because I thought I was that good (lol). Whenever I hear music, walking down the street, in my car, at a party…wherever I'm at…these little legs of mine go to work. I can really say that dance is apart of my life and I pray someday that I can open up my own studio. I am at a point in my life where I want to be healthy. I am no where close to a healthy weight and dance my ass off will help me start my weight lost journey. I have the energy, I have the moves, & I have the personality, so I know I would be great for the show!!

  4. I am an older woman, overweight and love to dance. I would love to have a chance to dance, dance, dance.

  25. I fell in love with DYAO back in 2009. My lowest weight (and when I looked the absolute best, I felt) was 150#. I just had my third and last baby, and going in for delivery, I weighed a whopping 280#. I am now down to 230#, but I am also absolutely miserable with myself. I know I can look better, feel better and BE better. I vow that if I can get on DYAO, I will develop and maintain a healthy way of living- a healthy diet, a healthy lifestyle and a healty attitude. I am absolutely ready to DANCE MY A OFF!!!
