So You Think You Can Dance Top 8 Performance Show Discussion Thread

We’re down to the So You Think You Can Dance Top 8. All we have left are 8 amazing dancers. I absolutely adore this part of the show. There’s nothing left but talent that brings it every week. The hard part is tomorrow when someone has to get sent home. Tonight, we just sit back, relax and enjoy the show.

Let the discussion begin. As always, I won’t be participating in the discussion until after the West Coast gets a chance to see So You Think You Can Dance.

Also, I will be posting the music for tonight’s SYTYCD as I get it. Plus, you’ll want to go and register to win free SYTYCD Workout DVD’s if you haven’t done so already.

Dizzy Feet Foundation

Since we are approaching the 100th episode of SYTYCD, I felt like it would be a good time to blog about the Dizzy Feet Foundation. The idea that is the driving force behind this non-profit organization is providing opportunities in the dance world, to those who wouldn’t normally have that chance. The foundation is also hoping to elevate the standards of dance instruction.

Dizzy Feet Foundation (DFF) has four founding members. They include Nigel Lythgoe, director Adam Shankman, DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba, and actress Katie Holmes. All of them are very excited about the potential of DFF.

When Nigel made the announcement about the DFF, I have to be honest that I was a bit surprised to hear that Katie Holmes was a founding member. After all she is well known for her role in Dawson’s Creek, Batman Begins, and she made her Broadway debut in Author Miller’s All My Sons. “I think it’s important for children to experience music and dance,” said Holmes “Every child should have the opportunity to discover what it is they like and have access to the very best in that pursuit.” (Quote from the DFF website.) I am looking forward to seeing Katie Holmes perform this Thursday night. I saw her when she guest stared on ABC’s Eli Stone, I know she sang and dance some in that but I wasn’t really paying much attention to the show. Anyways I’m excited to see another side to Katie.

In addition to the founding members the foundation will have a Steering Committee/ Board Members. These members are chosen by the founding members. It will be their job to select the scholarship recipients and to follow their journey. Some big names in the entertainment world have signed up to be apart of the committee. They include CEO of 19 Entertainment Simon Fuller, Paula Abdul, Debbie Allen, Jennifer Lopez, and Miley Cyrus. Of course many of our favorite SYTYCD judges and choreographers are also a part of the committee.

The foundation is still in its beginning phases. So I’m sure it will be a while till we see exactly how it’s going to work. My reaction to the announcement was one of excitement. I love what the Dizzy Feet Foundation wants to do, allowing young dancers to follow their dreams. Also getting at risk youth off the streets and providing them with a positive atmosphere. In my opinion the overall message is to always follow your dreams and to let nothing stand in your way…and knowing that there are people out there who want to help make your dream a reality.

I got all my information from Please visit this site if you would like to learn more details about DFF. Also you can find there mission statement, and information about making a donation. I’m not sure if information about applying for scholarships or becoming a DFF accredited dance studio has been posted yet but keep checking the site for updates.
