So You Think You Can Dance is an American televised dance competition show that airs on Fox in the United States and is the flagship series of the international So You Think You Can Dance television franchise.The show features a broad variety of American and international dance styles including classical, contemporary, ballroom, hip-hop, street, club, jazz, and musical theatre styles, amongst others, with many sub-genres within the categories represented. Competitors attempt to master these styles—which are generally, but not always, assigned by a luck-of-the-draw system—to survive successive weeks of elimination. The eventual champion wins a cash prize (typically $250,000) and the title of “America’s Favorite Dancer”.
Dance Mogul Magazine had the honor to cover a SYTYCD audition. People were lined up for blocks to try and fulfill their dreams. It’s amazing how far dance has come. Every generation has their showcase show whether it be Soul Train, Star Search or now SYTYCD. We hope that this is only the beginning for dancers to gain the respect they deserve and be able to make successful careers for themselves. SYTYCD can definitely serve as a spring board.
