If you still relish the memory of that middle school dance where your classmates crowned you ruler of the dance floor based on your unusually low limbo or stellar steps in the conga line, you might not want to attend the So You Think You Can Dancelive show. Watching these sleek, sinewy dancers catapult themselves through the air, defy physical laws, and broadcast beams of raw sexuality will completely crush your tattered delusions of dancing grandeur.
The live show is based on Fox's hit TV show of the same name, which tracks some of the nation's best undiscovered dance talent as they duke it out for the title of America's favorite dancer. They work with some of the country's top choreographers, including Napoleon & Tabitha D'Umo and Travis Wall, to pull off stunning performances in styles such as hip-hop, jazz, and Broadway. For the tour, Season 8's finalists Caitlynn Lawson, Clarice Ordaz, Jess LeProtto, Jordan Casanova, Marko Germar, Mitchell Kelly, Sasha Mallory, Tadd Gadduang, and Florida's own Ricky Jaime, along with winner Melanie Moore, will perform the most popular routines from the TV show as well as original pieces created specifically for the nationwide tour. The show hits American Airlines Arena this Sunday.
