Canada – Dates & Times for Season 3 Premiere August 15th!

Following one of its most successful seasons ever for original Canadian programming, CTV unveiled the fall schedule for So You Think You Can Dance Canada.

“In a challenging year, the creativity didn’t stop at CTV,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “Never before have we had such a strong slate of original programming in all genres, making it an easy decision to renew.”

Season 3 will begin on August 15 and after the audition episodes, performance shows will air on Wednesdays at 8pm with the half hour result shows on Thursdays at 8:30 p.m.

The Season 3 audition tour travelled to five cities across the country – Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax. SYTYCDC showcases dancers from across the country as they compete to impress an expert panel of judges.

Following each audition city, select competitors were invited to “Finals Week” in Toronto where they worked with some of Canada’s top choreographers. After a gruelling and challenging week mastering various genres of dance, 20 dancers earned a coveted spot in the SYTYCDC Top 20.

Chosen by the judging panel, this select group of dancers will perform in front of the nation. The public votes for their favourites following weekly performance episodes in which competitors are assigned partners and dance styles to perform, from hip-hop and krump to salsa, quickstep, contemporary and jive.

In the end, only one dancer goes home with the title of Canada’s Favourite Dancer and a $100,000 grand prize.

The Gemini Award-winning show is based on the Emmy Award-winning smash hit series created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe that premiered in 2005.

During SYTYCDC’s highly-popular second season, the series averaged 1.44 million viewers and ended with Lethbridge, Alta.’s Tara-Jean Popowich taking the title of Canada’s Favourite Dancer. The Season 1 winner was Montreal-native Nico Archambault.
