The Chinese version is a co-production between Hong Kong's TVB and the mainland's Hunan TV under licence from the BBC. It is available free-to-air in Hong Kong on TVB Jade. In mainland China it is aired on Hunan Satellite Television, which is free-to-air in Hunan, and available in urban areas throughout the rest of mainland China through widespread cable systems.
.The Chinese title (simplified Chinese: 舞动奇迹traditional Chinese: 舞動奇跡pinyin: Wǔdòngqíjì) is difficult to translate, but could be rendered as Miracle Dancing or "Miracles of Dance Moves". The official English title is Strictly Come Dancing.^ As you can imagine, when Dancing With the Stars comes to San Jose, seats can be difficult to find.

Other countries

The Russian TV show is called "Танцы со звездами" ("Tantsi so zvezdami", transliterated). The first season, which began in 2005, became extremely popular.

The Indian version is called Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. It was first broadcast in September 2006 on Sony Entertainment Television (SET). A lot of people confuse Dancing With The Stars with Nach Baliye which airs on StarPlus. Nach Baliye and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa have similar content and presentation but there are minor differences in the concept. The celebrity dancers on Nach Baliye are real life couples, and work with an assigned choreographer. The dancers on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa has one celebrity paired with a trained dancer/choreographer. A notice at the end of the show verifies that the Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is indeed a version of Dancing With The Stars.
The Japanese version is called Shall We Dance? It has the same title as the 1996 movie by the same name, but it has no relation to the movie beyond the shared name. .Due to the fact that there was already a season-special dancing program, and that and many cast members from it also appeared in the new program, the Japanese version was confused with a regularly-scheduled version of the season-special, rather than its own version of the TV series.^ Sticky Fingaz To Play Blade in New TV Series .
