One of the cool things about shows like So You Think You Can Dance is that later you see the dancers dancing in other venues: choreographing, dancing at awards shows and as backup dancers in music videos. I've seen SYTYCD alumni on TV shows like glee and touring on Broadway. For dance geeks like us, So You Think You Can Dance alumni are superstars! Witness Arnold and I attacking Dominic after last years Monsters of Hip Hop show.
Yeah, we don't know how to play it cool. It was like us and a pile of tiny, fawning 12 year old Japanese girls. I would've been embarrassed except that Andres and Maritza, freshly on vacation from Colombia were so overcome with excitement after the show that they asked for pictures with people they have never ever before seen in their lives! For you dance geeks Hok was there too. Seriously though, if you ever get the chance to attend either the Monsters of Hip hop Show or to see Quest Crew perform. Please do it! They are AMAZING.
And speaking of amazing(loopy transition, sorry!) last week Travis Wall and Danny Tidwell were on Dancing with the Stars. I can't even describe how the perfection of their pirouettes blows me away. Balance was always a problem for me as a dancer so I MARVEL at people who can spin with such control. Here's the clip. Travis' choreography is brilliant. It just blows me away!
