My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)

SPOILER!!!: Possible Choreographers in Tonight’s Episode

Found this on twitter:


Always good catchin back up @ choreos. Missed u guys @ @ @ & Sean Cheeseman http://t.co/S7vLhPW7
@NAPPYTABS
Napoleon and Tabitha

So it would appear that the following choreographers are going to be on hand today:
– Jason Gilkison
– NappyTabs
– Travis Wall
– Sonya Tayeh
– Sean Cheesman
– Tyce Diorio
Of course we know about Louis van Amstel

I’m kind of curious to see how many of these spoilers are actually true.

SPOILERS!!! Top 20 Rumored Pairings

So rumors have been running rampant with who was going to be paired up with whom… looking at twitter right now there is at least one confirmation:


Just finished rehearsal on stage w Whitney and Chehon for their Samba wed night 8/7 central on #SYTYCD …yip, I’m very excited!
@LouisVanAmstel
Louis van Amstel

So Witney and Chehon are paired together, not only that but they are doing the Samba as choreographed by Louis van Amstel.

This brings us to another interesting possibility: there has been a lot of talk over at the idolForums of possible pairings. In fact it went so far as to say that according to a series of DancePlug interview videos the couples would appear to be have been paired up.

NOTE: Keep in mind that this is all pure speculation, whether or not this is true remains to be seen.

First the blatantly obvious: Chehon Wespi-Tschopp (Ballet) & Witney Carson (Latin/Ballroom)

SYTYCD Season 9: Reference Pages of the Top 20

So I spent the past few days scouring the web for Twitter accounts, Facebook pages, online contract pages for So You Think You Can Dance Season 9 dancers. I also included the SYTYCD related Twitter and Facebook pages that the Top 20 are required to use throughout the duration of the season. This way if you wish to follow the dancers on Twitter or Facebook you are able to.

Very few dancers have any other pages beyond Twitter and Facebook but those that do I have also included for your reference. If you have any information you wish to contribute, just comment below. :)

SYTYCD Canada Cancelled

After one of the most fantastic seasons yet, the Canadian version of SYTYCD has been cancelled by CTV.

Hours after crowning Jordan Clark the Season 4 winner, the announcement was made official, this would be the last season of SYTYCD Canada.

“I can confirm that we are not ordering a fifth season of the series,” Scott Henderson, vice-president of communications for Bell Media told CityNews.ca.

“After four seasons and 92 episodes, CTV has decided to pursue other program strategies. This decision was made after careful consideration, including viewership and economic factors. We remain extremely proud of the legacy of So You Think You Can Dance Canada, including raising the profile of dance in this country,”

Fans are outraged, and they are not alone. Judges, choreographers and dancers alike are all in shocked and disappointed at this news.

Jean-Marc Genereux tweeted:

Dear Fans @SYTYCDCanada.no regrets! you were the best fans in the WORLD..SHOW is gone! But NOT your passion for DANCE,it’s a CTV decision!
You will hear all kinds of reasons!!! But you know what!!! Canada loved his DANCE SHOW and I’m sure the fans will react!!!

@TreArmstrong tweeted:

“Wow…honestly can’t believe #SYTYCDCanada has been cancelled,” Armstrong said Tuesday. “So disappointing for Canada & our amazing talent. Best season EVER! Love You.”
“Hope that #SYTYCDCanada comes back to live once more…thank you for 4 great seasons,” Armstrong wrote Tuesday. “The network, production, crew & talent, love u all.”

Luther Brown tweeted:

Its sad that the show has ended but God is good and we were all blessed to be apart of Canada’s best show! We went out with a bang!!!

Stacey Tookey tweeted:

I’m so sad to hear about the cancellation of SYTYCDC but I am so proud to know a group of people with that much talent & heart!! Love u all!

For me this is sad news. Granted I still watch SYTYCD USA, but there was something special about our Canadian SYTYCD and I am sad to see that go.

A part of me hopes that it will somehow survive, but only time will tell. There are a number of petitions and complaints going on to try and save the show. In the past, I know when a company cancels something, it is usually a done deal, but you never know!

How do you feel about this news?
