If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I spend my Wednesday and Thursday evenings watching So You Think You Can Dance (and discussing it with many of you). As a nonbookish extra, and in honor of tonight’s finale, I thought I would share my favorite dances from this season with you. These do not include the finale (because they aren’t up yet) which had some awesome dances. They are very contemporary and hip hop heavy – that’s just my taste (although I’m surprised at the lack of jazz). And I’m sure I’m missing some good ones but I can’t include them all. Enjoy.
Note: The videos may have a short (like 10 second) commercial at the beginning, but I wanted to link to the fox videos because (a) that’s the legal way and (b) they’re better quality than youtube. Sorry for the ads.
#1 – Kent and Lauren – contemporary
This is my absolute favorite video from this year. I love both Kent and Lauren. I would like them to get married and have lots of babies. You know, when they’re done dancing. Also, I think my life would be complete if I could dance one of Travis Wall’s pieces. He’s amazing. And it’s Howie Day.
#2 Alex and Twitch – Hip-Hop
Ah Nappytabs, how I love you. And want to be just like you. Also, Alex is a BALLET dancer. Ballet! If only he didn’t get hurt.
Sorry – I can’t embed this one. But click through – it’s really good.
#3 Robert and Dominick – Hip-Hop
Kind of creepy. Kind of awesome.
#4 Billy and Katee – Broadway
Billy might not have lived up to our expectations, but he was pretty amazing in this one. And I love Katee – she was from the first season I watched.
#5 Lauren and Twitch – Hip Hop
Did you expect that from Lauren? I bet you didn’t.
#6 Kent and Neil – Contemporary
Love that the boys got to dance together so much this season.
#7 Billy and Ade – Contemporary
Ok, nevermind. Billy’s an amazing dancer.
Bonus – My Favorite Group Dances
And I love this last one because it features Mark. And I love Mark and his quirkiness.
