"So You Think You Can Dance" Is Back This Summer

February 20, 2020

Dancers, we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief—our beloved “So You Think You Can Dance” has just been renewed for a sensational 17th season.

Hosted by the delightful Cat Deeley, and with Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy, and Laurieann Gibson already slated as judges, the show will return this summer. Unsurprisingly, “new twists and surprises” are already on the table, though we’ll have to wait a bit longer to discover what they’ll be. For now, if you’ve dreamed of winning the title of “America’s Favorite Dancer,” along with $250,000 and a Dance Spirit cover (hey, that’s us!), now’s your chance. Starting in late March, preliminary producer auditions for the new season will be held in Miami, New York, and Los Angeles, with selected contestants moving on to perform in Los Angeles in front of the all-star judges. Dancers can learn more and register for the auditions here.
