      So You Think You Can Dance, a “reality tv show” created by the minds behind American Idol and shown on Fox, is by far the most entertaining show in the new millennium. Aside from the not-so-quality entertainment acts sometimes brought in for elimination night, this show is family friendly and fun for everyone.

      Now let me give a break down of the show for those who are still questioning whether they should watch it.

      So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) is a show on Fox that was started back in 2005 with the goal of finding America’s best dancer. Someone who can pick out any dance, learn a routine, and put on a spectacular performance.

      The show begins its seasonal cycle by touring the United States and holding auditions in select cities. An auditioning dancer has three possible fates: move on to Vegas, go to the choreography, or go home. A dancer that they find stunning goes straight


      through, obviously, and a dancer that is horrible will be sent home. The tricky part is when the judges aren’t sure of the dancer’s ability to perform other types of dance (particularly the break dancers and poppers), and this is where the choreography stage comes in. The questionable dancers wait until the end of the day and learn a routine from one of the many SYTYCD choreographers. If they pass the test, they move on to Vegas with the other talented dancers.

      Although the auditions stage of the show is packed full of obnoxious and horrible dancers to keep the audience laughing, once you get to Vegas, the elite come out to play. Las Vegas is an incredibly challenging stage where dancers must learn routines and perform in groups. Some even have to be in a group and create their own routine! Many dancers are driven to the brink of madness, but at the end the judges ...


      • have to pick their top 10 male and female dancers.

        Once they have the top 20, the dancers start putting on performances in front of America, and on a gigantic stage with a huge audience. Each week they eliminate one male and one female, and America only chooses the bottom three dancers of each gender. Up until the top 10, the judges are in charge of the eliminations. Once the top 10 is reached, America is in full control of who goes home and who wins.

        SYTYCD is an amazing show filled with amazing dancers from across the nation. The performances are breathtaking, and it really captures the heart of dancing. This show makes everyone who watches it want to dance, and that’s not something a lot of shows can pull off.

        In addition to the spectacular performances, the show brings some real judging to the stage. The show has two main judges and the third seat rotates between

        various other choreographers. Every single commentary I have heard has critiques, not just “That was dreadful!” or “That was good, Dog.” like American Idol. The advice given is very helpful to the dancers, and nearly every competitor takes the critiques into practice.

        This show has made me believe in American television again. So You Think You Can Dance is always on my watch list whenever a new season comes on. The only thing I would like them to change is the solo dancing format; people used to dancing in pairs have to dance their solo alone and are often “dull” compared to the dancers who tend to dance alone. I’d also like them to have same-gender dances like they have during the final four.

        Overall this is an excellent show and I would recommend it to anyone who is able to catch an episode.

        I hope you enjoyed this review, and took some time to check out the show.
