I really loved the Kelley Abbey Top 12 Group routine last night and was intrigued by a comment I saw when I was re-watching the video online. A commenter said that it was a “remake” of a routine that was danced by one of the Australian Top 20s. I watched the last season of SYTYCD AU and really, really loved it, so I did remember one Kelley Abbey routine in particular that I’ll share with you, but it took some digging to find what the commenter was talking about.
She seems to only choreograph Top 20s or 12s from what I’ve found. Check it out.
From SYTYCD US Season 6, Kelley Abbey’s Top 20/Top 6 Finale routine
From SYTYCD AU Season 1, Kelley Abbey’s Top 12 Group routine
From SYTYCD AU Season 2, Kelley Abbey’s Top 12 Group routine
SYTYCD AU Season 3, Kelley Abbey’s Top 20 routine
And, I’m not sure what season this is from, but I think it’s AU’s 3rd (and last season), the guest performance from the FAME musical, which Kelley Abbey choreographed and which includes AU alumni. Pay particular attention around minute 1:36. Anything seem familiar?
