Sean Cheesman on SYTYCD Season 6

First of all, hello, I am Mandy and I am from Vancouver Canada and post on regularly but will be posting periodically here on the USA site also.

That being said, I have to tell you how thrilled I was to see Canadian Choreographers Maria Torres (an American but was on SYTYCD Canada show), Stacey Tookey, and newcomers Gustavo Vargas and Sean Cheesman, who have done some amazing stuff for the Canadian show.

I’d like to touch on each of these wonderful choreographers throughout the week, but for now, let’s look at the AMAZING Sean Cheesman.

Sean Cheesman choreographing on last weeks show was a great surprise for me. He is one of my favourite judges and choreographers on SYTYCD Canada and has brought so much greatness to our Canadian Show.

His Afrojazz routine for Noelle & Russell  was amazing and in my opinion one of the best of the evening.

They danced to “Frog Dance” -by Mickey Hart & Planet Drum, and Sean Cheeseman threw in all his tricks, really showcasing his  amazing choreography and giving Noelle and Russell a much needed spotlight.

I am so glad to see him choreogrpah on SYTYCD as it has a wider audience than SYTYCD Canada.  I really hope they invite him back for more this season and in the future seasons too as he is truly an awesome choreographer.
