So You Think You Can Dance, Next Generation: 6 to 5

E: Well, okay.  After I took a break and the show took an even longer break, we’re left without two of the most talented contestants.  And we’re stuck with the judges aggressively promoting the least skilled dancer in the bunch.  323 more words

So You Think You Can Dance, The Next Generation: 9 to 8

E: I wondered how this episode would go — would we have a trio to account for the odd number of contestants left — but I didn’t imagine we would return to the odd old format of the contestants dancing with their All Stars.  2,645 more words

So You Think You Can Dance, Next Generation: Top Ten

E: After the first half hour of the first live show, I was pretty sure I didn’t want to recap this show anymore.  There’s just not enough dancing, the judges give nothing but praise, the format tries too hard, and having the kids dance with adult partners ranges from mildly to excruciatingly uncomfortable.  3,200 more words

So You Think You Can Dance, Next Generation: Dance Academy, Volume 2

E:  Because that’s how I roll this season, I’m going to start with some dissatisfaction.  Having a Top Ten just doesn’t work for me.  It’s too few contestants, and forced some really brutal cuts.  1,361 more words

So You Think You Can Dance, The Next Generation: Dance Academy, volume 1

E: At the Academy, all 100 dancers dance their solos.  Then the ten All Stars, at Nigel’s instruction, pick 5 kids to be on their “team,” with the goal of eventually becoming their partner/protege.  1,158 more words

Recap

So You Think You Can Dance, The Next Generation: Audition #3, New York City

E:  Unsurprisingly, New York has more than its fair share of fantastic auditions.  Granted, not all of those auditioning hale from the Big Apple, but we see hip hop, ballroom and contemporary hit new heights.  1,407 more words

So You Think You Can Dance, The Next Generation: Audition #2, Chicago

E: On the “better late than never” front, hello!  I did not, in fact, give up on the show — I’ve simply been a bit nuts with visiting relatives staying after C’s wedding.  1,418 more words
