Poland-based prodco Golden Media Polska has acquired Quebec dance competition format Dance Revolution (22 x 90 minutes) from Armoza Formats, distributor for ITV Studios.

Developed and produced by Montreal’s Quebecor Content and prodco Fair-Play, the format – which is known as Révolution in la belle province – sees judges use 360-degree video technology to dissect dancers’ moves as they compete for a $100,000 prize.

This deal with Golden Media Polska is the latest in a string of agreements for the show.

Earlier this month, Armoza unveiled a co-development agreement for the format with Chinese broadcaster Hunan TV, which is currently airing in China under the name Dance Smash. Spanish prodco Globomedia and Paris, France-based Réservoir Prod both previously picked up the adaptation rights to the show in their respective markets. Russia’s Channel 1 and LNK in Lithuania have also commissioned local versions of the format.

Last week, Dance Revolution was one of three Canadian shows to be shortlisted for the Rose d’Or Awards. It will compete against The Last Leg (U.K.), Holey Moley (U.S.), Michael McIntyre’s Big Show (U.K.), Songland (U.S.) and Let’s Keep It Between Us (France) in the studio entertainment category
