All things Twitter

Thanks to John I was able to tweet live tonight from the @puresytycd twitter for those of us that watch on the east coast. I have to say it’s hard to tweet and follow along with the audition show, because there is so much info packed into them. Though I will do my best to keep up and will end my tweets with either my name or just simply with an A, so you will know it’s me and not John. Hope you guys will enjoy it.

Twitter has been a great way to keep up with my favorite alumni, judges, and choreographer. It’s fun to see some of the conversations between the dancers and some of them tweet as they watch the show too. I have my favorites and tweeted many of them and even gotten a few replies. I have gotten replies from Benji, Lil’ C, Adam Shankman and Mark. I have to say Mark’s reply kinda made my day. So I was wondering if any of our readers have gotten replies from any of your favorites, let us know…I would love to hear about it.

Dance is one of my biggest passions. I grew up dancing at Augusta West Dance Studio (the same studio that Kathryn McCormick). I have a BFA in theatre/dance from Valdosta State University. Tap is my favorite style of dance.

SYTYCD S7: Twitter Follow Up

So during the Twitter Round Up, there were some things that were going on that I thought, “well that’s interesting… what’s going on here…” So I did some digging… and here’s what I came up with.

Brian Friedman on America’s Got Talent?

As it turns out – he was Consulting Producer on America’s Got Talent last season, which means it sounds like he’s likely going to be working on AGT this season. Where the frack have I been?

So that begs the question… how does Mollee Grey fit into all this? I guess time will tell.

Jonathan Platero signs with Ballroom with a Twist

This show first opened in Wilmington, Delaware with various alumni from DWTS, SYTYCD and High School Music. The headliners included Dmitry Chaplin and Chelsie Hightower. Since then they have been slowly touring the country with a rotating group of dancers and guests and hosts.

After some digging I found out that there are tickets available for a July show in Hershey, Pennsylvania and an August show in Detroit, Michigan.

Jakob Karr & Karla Garcia dancing in Australia

They (along with Jaimie Goodwin and Kameron Bink) are actually in Australia touring with the Rasta Thomas’ ROCK THE BALLET. Rasta Thomas’ Bad Boys and Pretty Girls boast a strong repertoire of past and current SYTYCDers.

Bad Boys Current:
Kameron Bink – Season 3
Jakob Karr – Season 6

Bad Boys Past:
Robert Roldan – Season 7
Danny Tidwell – Season 3
Nick Lazzarini – Season 1
Adrian Lee – Season 7 hopeful

Pretty Girls Current:
Jaimie Goodwin – Season 4 (Principal Swing)
Karla Garcia – Season 5

Perth, Australia is their last stop before heading to Europe for stops in Germany, Spain, France and Italy through the end of the year.

Janette Manrara dances into Burn the Floor

Well duh! I’m so blind! Janette is heading to London to join up with the cast of Burn the Floor at the West End as first reported by SYTYCDism. Just goes to show how big the rock I’ve been hiding under is.

Kourtni Lind visits the merry old land of Oz

Got it! She’s going to be in the National Tour Cast of WICKED! Currently starring Chandra Lee Schwartz as Glinda and Donna Vivino as Elphaba.

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... =)

SYTYCD S7: Twitter Round Up

So I was reading through the Twitter updates of various dancers and realized that maybe I should have been smart and do a Twitter Roundup for you guys. >.< Just goes to show how ready I am for this weekend. Like this one by Mia Michaels

Anyway, looks like it is time to relax for some of the All-Stars… Sounds like Allison Holker is planning on following Comfort Fedoke‘s footsteps by heading to the beach today… a sign that she’s not going to be dancing next week? After all that’s what Comfort did since she wasn’t dancing this past week.

Allison Holker

Lauren Gottlieb seems to begging Brian Friedman to come back to the show.

@brianfriedman I miss you period!! Can you please come do a piece!
5:13 AM Jul 1st via Echofon in reply to brianfriedman

Speaking of Brian Friedman

What is he doing? Running around in the buff? People give him back his clothes else he’d get arrested for indecent exposure in a public area!
Note 2 friends… Do any of u have clothes of mine u borrowed and need 2 return? I’m missing a lot of stuff. Please return it asap! Xoxo B
