SYTYCD Canada Returns August 15

Reality television junkies, such as myself, are enjoying a summer of SYTYCD, Big Brother, Bachelorette, True Beauty and Hell’s Kitchen. But that is just the start…..

So You Think You Can Dance kicks off it’s 3rd season August 15 with auditions from across Canada before moving into the Top 20 and weekly eliminations.

CTV Reports:

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.

I don’t know about all of you but I am so excited. Something about BEING Canadian makes me just love seeing my “people” dance. Of course, I love SYTYCD USA and if I could watch international SYTYCD shows I am sure I would love them too, dance in general is so amazing – but, the hometown dancers I just connect with and become so attached to.

Set your PVRs, DVRs, TiVos and (dare I say it?) VCRs?!?! 🙂

Don’t miss SYTYCD Canada’s 3rd season startin next month!!!

I am a blogger and reality tv lover. I blog here for SYTYCD but mostly the Canada version, since I live in Vancouver BC. I also blog about other reality tv shows on my own blog

SYTYCD Seasons 6 and 7 Tour

Since the tour dates have been announced, and Nigel was kind enough to clarify that dancers from both Seasons 6, Season 7 and the All Stars are going to participate… one thing that Nigel mentioned to Ashley was that she was “chosen” to participate on the tour as long as her injury has healed. Chosen? Meaning that not everyone is going to get a chance to be on the tour?

And as Emilie mentioned before… there might be dancers in Season 6 that won’t be able to make the tour due to contractual obligations elsewhere (they have to dance to put food on the table after all! 😀 ).

So below are a series of polls… the Top 10 dancers of Season 6, the dancers of Season 7 sans Alex Wong, and the All Stars… You get to decide who you’d like to see go on the tour! You are able to select as many dancers as you would like… in this case there’s no limit! 🙂 Enjoy.

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)
