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.

Introducing The Weekend Forecast

Ever wonder what Season Two winner Benji Schwimmer has been up to lately. Well if you follow him on twitter you would know that he is a part of a  band, the lead singer to be exact. The bands first single is called “Right” and I posted the music video below. I like it the song is pretty catchy and it has a great message. So enjoy and show Benji some love on twitter @BenjiSchwimmer.

Returning for Season 7

Louis Van Amstel. He tweeted this yesterday: As far as i know i WILL BE part of SYTYCD this coming season.
Im actually really looking fwd to this season
This is news I like for obvious reason that Louis is an amazing ballroom choreographer. Also it gives me hope that maybe we could see Dmitry, Lacey, or Chelsie. So welcome back Louis can’t wait to see what you will bring to season 7.

SYTYCD Twitter Round Up

It’s that time again for me to go around and highlight some of the most interesting tweets from throughout the SYTYCD twittersphere. If you don’t know what twitter is, then come out of your hole and look around. Basically, it’s a great way to stalk your favorite dancer. AHHH…did I say that out loud? Ok, don’t do that, it’s illegal and wrong. What is right is for you to follow your favorite dancer on Twitter and see where you might be able to see them dance again.

Ok, enough about that. First some plugs for our SYTYCD twitter page to see the list of all the twitter accounts for people that have been or are on SYTYCD. Also, check out the Twitter list links for some of the latest news from those on the show now or the choreographers.

Now, on to my snide remarks alongside some interesting tweets…

PaulineMata Can’t wait to see my SYTYCD family!!! \\\<3///
We can’t wait to see you either Pauline. You were sent home far too early.

NAPPYTABS Wrapping the photo shoot! Thanks again to Celestina, Chelsie, Jason, Mandy, Chelsea, Courtney, & D-Trix.
Hey @NAPPYTABS Where’s the love? No invite for me to be at the photoshoot. I see how it is. Ok, I’ll admit that Chelsie Hightower is much hotter than I.

sparks5678 Watch so u think u can dance tonight I did a number with russel and Ashley. I need feed back!!!
Your wish is my command. I loved your old school Hip Hop. This was the best routine I’ve seen from you in a while. Too bad we didn’t get to see Ashley shake her thing.

NAPPYTABS Okay Dancers, the Cirque gig was mainly for Las Vegas peeps, but if you want to move to Las Vegas if you make the show?!
I thought about saying I was a dancer just so I could get a chance to meet NAPPYTABS in Vegas. However, that just felt wrong. However, I thought maybe some other Las Vegas dancers read this website and would want to know. Looks like @laurengottlieb is working with @NAPPYTABS on this Cirque show. An Elvis show…sounds interesting huh?

dizzyfeet We have been nominated for a Peoples Choice Award. Please go to and vote for SYTYCD.
I encourage this type of voting. I’m surprised that Nigel didn’t mention it on the show tonight when all the judges turned into politicians asking for votes.

NAPPYTABS RT @amandareza Carrie Underwood Special…did you guys choreograph something on it? – Yes, we did Cowboy Cassonva & Guys Like You.
WOW!! They’ve Gone Country….I’d never have guessed that.

NAPPYTABS We have to say Ellenore was a real trooper & sucked it up this week! She tore her rotater cuff, got a shot & decided to perform.
NAPPYTABS And let me say, her performance was amazing! Lucky for Tabitha…because she was gonna have to dance if Ellenore wasn’t so tough!
This is an interesting note. Ellenore was hurt too. Why’d they let her dance through and not Ashleigh. Granted, it’s a different injury and maybe less time to find a replacement? I still adored Ashleigh tonight. She was so cute on stage when she talked about wanting to dance. Although, from the above tweets I’m mostly disappointed that we didn’t get to see Tabitha dance. I would have LOVED to see Tabitha and Legacy do that routine. Although, even more than that I’m rooting for a Tabitha and Napoleon duet on some future SYTYCD. That would be AMAZING!!

MollsGrayy enjoying some celine dion with @kathrynrmcc and @jakobakarr … jakob’s true talent is belting celine songs 🙂 haha. love it.
Sounds like Jakob Karr is heading for American Idol after SYTYCD.

MelissaSandvig 3 nutcrackers, 3 flights this weekend. Hopefully everything goes without a hitch.
Wow! That’s a lot of nut cracking. I also love that the link goes to Melissa’s Facebook page where it says “Melissa Sandvig (Naughty Ballerina)”

CaitlinKinney27 Jeans shopping with my man 🙂 then church then ice skating!! It’s a good day!
Every man’s dream.

Just call me Charlie...but where are my angels?

Blake McGrath wants to choreograph for SYTYCD!

Happy Thursday!
whew, what an intense results show last night. nigel was pretty peeved with the lack of “dance for your life” solos. he has since apologized for his comments via Twitter…want some good news?

as the official spoilers/behind the scenes guru here at Pure SYTYCD, I set myself up a Twitter account because a bunch of contestants (both current and past) have them. One of the former contestants I “follow” is Blake McGrath, he of the insane solos in season 1. I still can’t figure out how he physically changed directions that quickly, I’ve watched this a ton trying to get it, and I just don’t, haha. I checked out a Twitter conversation he was having with Mary, and it looks like he really wants to come choreograph! currently, he’s in canada as they begin auditions for S3 of SYTYCD Canada, but from his tweets it looks like he would love to come do a piece on the US show!


@HOTtamaleTRAIN hey baby! Its me blake. Let the kids know if u want some Blake sexy action choreod on sytycd us! RETWEET! Love u and miss u!

he’s also tweeted his interest to Nigel:
@dizzyfeet hey mr. I really wanna come set a piece for ur show in the states! Hope ur well! Xoxo Blake
Nigel responded that he would love it if Blake could come…

Blake has done some fabulous routines for SYTYCD Canada, and I’d love to see what he could do here.

what do you guys think?

p.s. an extra treat, Travis is back this week!
via his Twitter, Travsola
so excited about the couple i have this week on sytycd……like so excited!!

*update 11/12–looks like Travis will have a familiar face helping him choreograph this week: Jamie Goodwin from season 3! She and Travis have been friends for years, Travis’s mom taught Jamie as well as Travis and Danny (S3). They were also longtime dance partners.

John’s UPDATE:
You can see our full list of all the SYTYCD Twitter accounts. If you know of one we don’t have, please let us know and we’ll update the list. Also, even if you know nothing about twitter, check out this webpage with the latest tweets (messages) from SYTYCD Season 5 and SYTYCD season 6 contestants. It’s fun to see what’s happening with all of the various dancers in near real time.
