Potential So You Think You Can Dance Season 6 Dancers

I just created a list of forgotten dancers on So You Think You Can Dance season 5. Now take a look at the list of other people who we saw a lot, but I hope will still come back on So You Think You Can Dance Season 6.

Ryan Kasprzak – I don’t think I have to explain myself here. His brother made it and he didn’t for the lamest reason Nigel has ever given. I’m not a huge fan myself, but I think it would fulfill a dream for him and I’m all for people living their dreams.

Megan Kinney – We didn’t get to know her as much as Caitlin. Probably because Caitlin was in the top 20 and she wasn’t. I don’t like her as much as Caitlin, but she’s still a nice dancer and I’d love to see her back.

Erik “Silky” Moore – I was really surprised when Erik was sent home. Check out these videos of Erik “Silky” Moore and you’ll see why I was surprised. He has some real versatility and personality and I think the show will miss a personality like Erik. Maybe next season.

Gabi Rojas – I don’t really need to explain this one. Everyone that’s watched her knows she has some unique choreography that was interesting. Can you imagine her solos?

Nobuya Nagahama – I loved this guys passion for dancing. I’m sure he wasn’t the most refined dancer, but he kind of reminded me of Hok who was good at his style, but just loved stretching himself to do other dances. Looking forward to seeing him come back and perform again.

Natalie Reid – I think that some people don’t want to see her come back, but she was so passionate last year about coming back that I hope she does it again. I like seeing people like her beat the odds or at least try. Luckily she doesn’t have to wait a whole year to try.

Sex – Oh wait No!!

Forgotten Faces from SYTYCD 5

There are so many people that audition for So You Think You Can Dance, I really don’t envy the producers and editors of So You Think You Can Dance at all. Nigel even said as much in a tweet he sent where he talked about being on the golf course while the editors were hard at work trying to get a few days of auditions down to an hour or two.

I think there are two types of dancers that unfortunately hit the cutting room floor on So You THink You Can Dance. First, we lose dancers that we fall in love with in the auditions and then never see again. Second, there are great dancers that make it to the end of vegas week and just barely miss making the top 20, but which we never actually get to see dance.

This post is a tribute to these dancers who we hope will return for So You Think You Can Dance season 6. If you have a dancer you think I should add to this list leave a comment (preferably with a link to a video of that person) and I’ll add them to the post.

Kelsea Taylor – I’m sure very few people will forget the “beautiful disastrous weirdo” who also introduced us to the music of Oona (even if it wasn’t her original music). Too bad after her killer audition, we never saw her in Vegas week. My source says she went home in the ballroom round in Las Vegas.

Paula VanOppen – She almost made the top 20 and you should have seen the fan club she has in my comments. Considering her fan club and the videos on YouTube of Paula I’d love to see her come back on season 6 of So You Think You Can Dance.

Diana Vaden – Another person similar to Paula which made the top 20, but we didn’t see her dance nearly enough to be able to make any judgments. My source says she’s still undecided about auditioning again. Let’s hope she changes her mind and goes back.

Kellen Stancil (Umbrella Guy) – He made it to Las Vegas, but then we never saw him again. I’d love to have seen how he did in Las Vegas. Hopefully he’ll come back again.

Chimezie Nwosu – Can you say Twitch? Let’s hope he works as hard as twitch did and he’ll be back on the show. Too bad we didn’t get to see more of his work in Las Vegas.

Arielle Taylor – A wonderful audition, but she kind of fell off the show when we got to Las Vegas. She auditioned before and I expect we’ll see her audition again.

Talia Rickards – Remember her audition. Beautiful along with a beautiful back story. I’d really like to see her dance some more.

Geo Smith (African Dancer) – Another disappearing act. It was in Las Vegas, but dancers weren’t meant to disappear. Cris Angel has tried that in Las Vegas and he’s been failing miserably.

Marico Flake (Memphis Juker) – Great audition, but once again nothing in Las Vegas. I’d have liked to see him try some other styles and see how he’d do.

Anna Dunn – I’m sure you remember the name. Great contemporary dancer that we never get to see again. I guess there’s always next year.

Lauren and Lydia Guerra – I’d have love to see the twins in Las Vegas. Too bad.

Amanda Kerby – Where did she go? They did a whole package on her talking about her family and her father and then we get none of her in Las Vegas. Very sad.

Paris Torres and Jason Glover Top 20 So You Think You Can Dance Interview

I think that Paris Torres is going to be one of those contestants that people get annoyed with really quickly. She’s like the quintessential beauty queen dancer. I don’t know what it is, but I think her look and the way she acts is going to get on a lot of people’s nerves. I predict the haters are going to start hammering Paris Torres for her huge chin too. Jason Glover should be really fun to see on the show. I think people are going to love his really calm demeanor. Check out the video interview of Paris Torres and Jason Glover:

Melissa Sandvig & Kupono Aweau Top 20 So You Think You Can Dance Interview

I love this interview of Kupono Aweau. I love all of his Hawaiian lingo, not to mention performing at the shopping center. When Kupono said “junk” it took me right back to living in Hawaii. Melissa barely even looks like the “naughty ballerina” in this. She does look a lot more mature than any of the other dancers in the top 20. It will be interesting to see how America reacts to Melissa. Pono definitely dominated this interview though. There’s a reason in Hawaii they have the phrase “talk story.” Check out the interview of Melissa Sandvig & Kupono Aweau:

Asuka Kondoh & Ade Obayomi Top 20 So You Think You Can Dance Interview

Finally time to finish posting the other SYTYCD top 20 videos. This video is of Asuka Kondoh & Ade Obayomi. They actually are pretty candid about their experience in Las Vegas. Ade Obayomi was trying to sell himself a little bit too much to me. However, in the format of the show I don’t think we’ll really see that come out of him. Asuka was a real charmer. The judges got that dead on. I hope I’m not disappointed with her dancing come Wednesday. Her little laugh at the very end of the video is the perfect example of the little things she does that are so charming. Check out Asuka Kondoh & Ade Obayomi’s interview for the SYTYCD top 20.
