My summer time TV obsession is the show So You Think You Can Dance. The hubby and I stumbled upon it a few summers ago during season 4. Joshua Allen won that season and I totally wanted to be his friend.
I took two years of dance when I was little but then we moved to North Carolina mid-year and I never got back into it. It makes me a little sad to think about it because I love to dance. Have you met me? Then you know this.
This show is the total jam. Every episode there is at least once dance number that totally astounds me or moves me to tears. Contemporary and Hip Hop are my favorite genres, but I love all of them (well, maybe not the Quick Step.)
This is my most favorite group performance EVER. It’s choreographed by Wade Robson.
I also have a major love for Mia Michaels. She is simply a genius choreographer. Her best piece, in my humble opinion, is her ADDICTION piece (which won an Emmy!)
And while Mia typically does contemporary pieces that are either flat out beautiful or completely transforming, she also likes to have fun. Have you seen the dance henceforth known as the “butt” dance?
If you have a love of dance and have not seen the show, you are missing out. I’ve become a fan of styles I never dreamed would interest me…like the Paso Doble. And I’m eager for the day that my kids, especially my daughter, take dance classes. Right now, every time music is on, they both break it down. It’s awesome to watch.
