Summer Fun on TV is Coming!
If you love exuberant dancers, be certain to check out Fox’s SYTYCD, aka So YOU Think You Can Dance summer series. Thousands of young dancers around the US tryout to become one of the 20 finalists who strive to be named most popular dancers of the season. The choreography is all freshly created. Dancers have less than one week to learn and perform their randomly selected partnered dance genre as well as their personal solos and at least one group number (which usually opens the show). You will see modern, hip-hop, Bollywood, ballroom, Broadway and many other styles.
I love the show’s energy, musicality and creativity. I’ve learned to appreciate new styles such as crumping. I also enjoy the brief interviews of the dancers and the chance to see young people at their most creative. I hope you will give it a look. (It’s usually on from 8-10 mid-week but that may change.)
