LilSis is right; neither us watch too much TV. The few things I do watch are things I really love. Lost, for example! And So You Think You Can Dance! The season starts tonight on Fox! This show is so awesome. They audition dancers of all genres, much like American Idol does with singers. You see incredible dancers of all types compete against each other: hip hop, lyrical, crumping, ballroom, contemporary, broadway, you name it. Throw in some of the most fabulous choreographers in the business and the result is unbelievable dancing that you just have to see. Imagine a break dancer and a Latin dancer competing in a modern dance or country two-step round, for example. It’s amazing, inspiring and dramatic.
I came to the SYTYCD party late, but now I’m a fervent viewer. Need a reason to check out the new season? How about two? These are some of my favorite performances from last year.
Twitch and Katee – performing what may be my favorite dance of the year!
Chelsea and Mark (recognize her from this season’s Dancing With the Stars? Guess where she got her big break!)
