Broadway + SYTYCD = Amazing!

Hi everybody! I haven’t posted in a while, school has been crazy, but something caught my eye today that I wanted to share with you. As many of you know, I’m the resident broadway geek here at PureSYTYCD, and I was on www.broadway.com this morning when I came across a post about SYTYCD! Actually, it was SYTYCD Canada. Mia Michaels has been doing a lot of choreographing for their 3rd season, which as we all know from Mandy’s awesome recaps is down to their final 4 (I’ll miss you Mackenzie!!). Well, back at the end of September, Mia choreographed a group number for the top 10 to the song Will I? (Lose My Dignity) from the iconic musical, RENT.

I know we’ve been pretty critical of Mia as a judge on our site, but this piece just reinforced to me what an incredible choreographer she is. She took a piece of music that is really only known to a select audience (the broadway community/fans) and made it contemporary and relatable. It’s a powerful and moving number, one that most certainly would get Emmy consideration had it been here in the states. It also benefitted from another thing we don’t have anymore, the old stage!! Seeing the emotional commitment of the dancing just took the piece to another level. Don’t believe me? See for yourself!

SYTYCD Canada – Top 4

As I mentioned before I have a very crazy month of October. I was away last week in New Orleans and Vegas to celebrate my 30th birthday!

Here is a complete update……

Last Week we went from Top 8 —> Top 4

Two men and Two women were sent home last week while I was away.

Women:
Danielle & Nathalie were sent home.
Leaving Janick & Amanda in the Top 4.

Men:
Sebastian & Mackenzie were sent home.
Leaving Jeff & Denys in the Top 4.

Good-bye to 4 fantastic dancers.

Tonight our Top 4 performed.

Amanda, Denys, Janick and Jeff.

I will post on this later…

Sunday October 24th our winner will be announced.

Any discussion on the Top 4 or the season as a whole?

Sorry again I dropped the ball the past two weeks – real life took over and my obsession with reality tv was forced to be delayed (thank goodness for PVR heh heh)
