Combining her love for busting a few moves and her knack for finding talented youngsters, Ellen DeGeneres has launched a new digital dance series for kids.

Kicking off Monday, the eight-episode series, titled tWitch and Allison’s Dance Challenge, will feature six contestants between ages 10 and 14 as they compete for a chance to perform live on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in May. The kids will run through a variety of dance styles for the slot, including contemporary, hip-hop, and pop animation. After performing, they’ll be separated into two teams, with one member from each group going on to a final head-to-head battle.
