Louis Van Amstel from Dancing with the Stars Joins SYTYCD

I think that Nigel’s twitter feed is going to be a great gem for fans like myself. I’m going to have to check it more often. Nigel just announced that Louis Van Amstel of Dancing with the Stars fame (he choreographed the Dancing with the Stars tour too) will be joining season 5 of So You Think You Can Dance.

Nigel described the addition of Louis Van Amstel like this: “Louis Van Amstel, from DWTS is joining our group of incredibly gifted choreographers this Season. That’s fair. They’ve got 3 of our dancers!”

I’m not sure that’s a fair trade, but I’ve enjoyed Louis Van Amstel’s choreography and I think he’ll do some great work on So You Think You Can Dance. Looks like So You Think You Can Dance season 5 is on a roll.

Wade Robson Back on So You Think You Can Dance Season 5

Nigel Lythgoe made another rather recent announcement on his Twitter account. Here’s what he said, “Having breakfast in the hotel.Paso orange juice tastes better than LA. Did I tell you Wade’s back this Season? Remind me to tell you things!”

First we learn that Shane Sparks is on SYTYCD 5. Now we learn that Wade Robson is back on the show. This is a great sign that So You Think You Can Dance is able to get such amazing talent to come back to the show.

So You Think You Can Dance Season 6 to Air in Fall 2009

I’ve now read in two different reliable sources that So You Think You Can Dance is going to have a second season in 2009. Season 6 of So You Think You Can Dance has been given a Fall time slot on Fox. It looks like the idea is for So You Think You Can Dance to bridge the Fall gap between So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol.

The other interesting part of this is that So You Think You Can Dance would then be going up against ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. This would be really interesting since many of the stars from past seasons of So You Think You Can Dance have made the bridge to being professional dancers on Dancing with the Stars (see Lacey Schwimmer, Chelsie Hightower and Dmitry Chaplin).

I couldn’t be more excited about this change. One report I read said that Fox is still waiting to see how well So You Think You Can Dance will do this summer before making it final. I guess we’ll see, but either way it’s fun to think that we’ll have a second season of So You Think You Can Dance so quickly. Summer just isn’t enough SYTYCD for me. I found where Nigel Lythgoe confirmed that Fox has announced Season 6 of So You Think You Can Dance on Fox in September. BEAUTIFUL!!
