Randomness: Amazing dance video

The group routines are usually the part of So You Think You Can Dance I’m least interested in–I seem to connect much better with the duets and solos–but I’ve been catching up on the Canadian version and love love love this group number with the top twelve. So I have to share!

It was choreographed by Mia Michaels, which is not surprising to me, since at least half of my favorite routines are thanks to her. :)

I perk up the instant I hear Mia Michaels' name. I just love her choreography so much.

Her work is so unique, but still accessible--she's definitely my favorite of all the regular choreographers.

Gorgeous!! Now I'm feeling bummed that we can't view Canada's show :)

I was actually surprised how good the Canadian show is! The host is nowhere near as awesome as Cat, and there's a lot of annoying product placement in the in between bits, but the dancing is just as great as on the US show (and they use a lot of the same choreographers and judges--one of the two head judges is Jean Marc Genereux who does a lot of ballroom choreo for SYTYCD).

I wish they would make DVD collections of the routines for all the versions of SYTYCD so people who've missed or not had access to episodes can still enjoy them.

I haven't seen anything quite like it before--love how she used the row of chairs!

Are you a SYTYCD fan? I totally recommend the show, as someone who rarely likes reality TV, if you enjoy watching dance even a little. The talent is amazing.

I haven't watched it regularly since we don't have regular tv at home (we just watch dvds) and last time I checked they had not released it on dvd. Though I think it might be on hulu so I should check into it!

I know the show allows viewing online--the Canadian station that airs it has episodes online: http://shows.ctv.ca/SoYouThinkYouCanDance.aspx (Not sure if non-Canadians can watch those, but might be worth a try!)
