BANGKOK, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hit BBC TV show, Dancing with the Stars is currently showing in Thailand, sponsored by Amari. What better way to bring the colours and rhythms of modern Asia to life than through dancing!

Dancing with the Stars is one of BBC Worldwide's Global Brands and in 2010 was named as the world's most successful reality TV format in the Guinness Book of Records.  The show pairs local celebrities from stage, screen and sport with professional dancers who each week teach their partner a dance routine from the world of ballroom or Latin. Every week, the pairs perform their routines in front of a set of judges who mark each couple out of 10. Viewers are also able to vote for their favourite couple with scores from viewers and the judges combined. With the addition of Thailand, there are 43 local versions of Dancing with the Stars around the world spanning six continents. The brand has also extended into live events, gaming and digital properties.

In order to share the excitement of the show, Amari is inviting its elite-tier Chorus Rewards members residing in Thailand to join them to watch the recording of the show on location at the studio.
