New York, NY – August 26, 2010- The competition comes to an intense close as the remaining three finalists fervently contend for the winning title.  Meanwhile, former contestants return to show their support and their new looks on the season finale of “Dance Your Ass Off” airing Monday, August 30 at 10pm ET/PT on Oxygen.
