After entering the Shark Tank, Dede and Kathy presented their exercises with a dance mix. They asked the sharks for $700k for 70% equity and a $1 million valuation. The lifetime sales of their other businesses till 2009 were $15,000 which is quite low.

Daymond John said investing $700k in this business is a risk so he is out. Robert Herjavec said that he cannot take so much risk by spending money on this business, so he is out. Kevin O’Leary said he believes investing in this business is a crime for money, so he is out.
