SYTYCD Top 10 Results Thoughts

Well…no Season 5 Top 10. Sorry for that one, y’all. My bad. Must be next week. I’m a bit bummed after tonight’s show. Not just the results, but also finding out there are only two more weeks of Season 6. The finale is going to be between 6 dancers, which seems a bit…much… The results are going to be very strange, I think, because we won’t have gotten to see them dance as many routines over an extended amount of time like in previous seasons. And how long is this finale going to be? Cause if it’s only 2 hours with 6 final dancers… that seems really unfair and like a total gip, really.

As for the rest of my thoughts…

2 BYU Mormons on SYTYCD

Emilie and I were chatting last night about all of the mormons that are on dance shows. It’s really quite amazing how many of the dancers on these shows are mormons. Granted most people don’t know and probably don’t care too much what their religion is (as so they shouldn’t), they just love the way they dance.

However, mormons do love seeing other mormons (don’t ask me exactly why). Plus, I have to admit that Ryan and Ashleigh Di Lello hit me from 2 angles since they’re mormon and they both went to BYU (where I went also). So, it’s fun for me to watch little things about Ryan and Ashleigh. For example, I loved the picture of Ryan in front of a mormon temple last night. Although, my wife gets credit for noticing it first.

On that note, it was fun to see the college (BYU) newspaper write an article about Ryan and Ashleigh. Check it out, it’s a good read. Here’s a few interesting quotes:

“In general, so much is out of your control [on the show],” said Ashleigh Di Lello. “The editing that takes place, you wish more could be shown about who you really are in some ways because there is such limited time beyond the dancing and sometimes people can form opinions. I think anyone who has been on TV could say that it is not enough time for people to get to know who you are.”

The Di Lellos met in a dance studio four days after he returned home from his mission to Argentina.

“We considered dancing together but we felt we should keep the dancing separate from our relationship and just focus on our dating and courtship,” Ryan Di Lello said. “A lot of people say if you spend so much time with your partner you will eventually start dating and we didn’t want it to be because of dance; we wanted it to be because of us getting to know each other and falling in love with each other separate from dance.”

For a couple years, the Di Lellos performed on cruise ships and then decided they would settle down in Salt Lake City. Ryan began working at a financial services firm but they soon realized they were not ready to give up performing.

The Di Lellos heard about the “So You Think You Can Dance” auditions only a couple weeks before the judges came to Utah, so they began to prepare last minute.

Of course, you’d think with me being mormon and having graduated from BYU myself that Ryan and Ashleigh would be my favorites. They’re not. I love Noelle!

*Update on Ryan Kasprzak*

WOW! what a great Top 10 show last night!

As I’ve posted on our site before, I’m a HUGE Broadway geek (thus the reason I practically had a heart attack the first time I heard Spencer Liff was going to be choreographing this season, haha). Anyway, coming up next week is the Annual “Gypsy of the Year” competition for Broadway and Off-Broadway shows in New York City. I’ve attached the press release because it looks like the opening number for the show is going to include an appearance from none other than Ryan Kasprzak! Congratulations to him for booking such a great gig.

Ryan Kasprzak at Gypsy of the Year

check out this great cause, and look into getting tickets, anyone in the NY metro area who reads our site, we’d love to hear how it goes!

I’ll peruse YouTube for clips late next week, there usually are a handful and they’re very funny!
Here’s Daniel Radcliffe with the cast of Equus at last year’s competition (Spencer is one of the horses, can anyone figure out which one he is?!)
