"SYTYCD" Through The Years

July 23, 2009

Remember how we said we’ve been covering “So You Think You Can Dance” since the show started? Well, we weren’t lying! Check out all this awesome coverage we’ve done on some of your “SYTYCD” favorites:

You’ve probably already heard that Katie Holmes will be appearing on tonight’s 100th episode. Here, Tyce Diorio talks about working with Mrs. Cruise. Also, check out Tyce’s awesome behind-the-scenes photo shoot for when he was on the cover of our sister publication, Dance Teacher.

Before she was part of the top 20, Karla Garcia was featured in one of our competitions stories about the pros and cons of being a comp kid. We’re sure many of your out there can relate!

Are you as in love with Tabitha and Napoleon D’umo’s choreography as we are? They’ve been praised for bringing the lyrical hip-hop style to the show, like their Emmy nominated piece “Bleeding Love” from last season. Here, we discuss exactly what lyrical hip hop is and why it’s so controversial. Then, try this Nappytabs step-by-step so you can do lyrical hip hop at home. There’s a video too! And make sure to watch this power duo at their Dance Teacher cover shoot and in this slide show. And if you’re thinking about auditioning for the show, they have some awesome advice!

Remember Alex Wong from Vegas Week? We’re still sad that he couldn’t cut his contract with Miami City Ballet to join the show. But we know he has amazing things in his future. Learn more about him in our recent article “You Should Know: Alex Wong.”

We got up close and personal with Mary Murphy about why “SYTYCD” is so groundbreaking, what you can do to stand out at auditions and some of her favorite moments on the show. Trust us, you don’t want to miss it! For even more of her audition tips, watch this and this.

Can you tell how much we love “SYTYCD?” We’re thrilled that the winner of the show will be featured on a Dance Spirit cover as part of the prize. Stay tuned for more on the show and follow us tonight as Twitter while we watch! –Lauren Levinson
