Why I Love So You Think You Can Dance

If you have been following this blog for the four years I have been writing it you will start to realize that every summer I have a small obsession with dancing and a show called "So You Think You Can Dance". Many times you have heard me say this is by far the best of the 100 talent competitions that are on tv today. The reason is simple. Talent. The dancers on this show even if they are in the top 20 are all world class dancers. You see dancing doesn't get the exposure that singing does so you have some of the worlds best performers going on this stage to show what they can do. The result are shows that are stunning and dances that are unforgettable. Today Buzzfeed has listed the Top 12 dances from the shows 10 season. Here are the top 3.

Womens Work is a powerful piece about breast cancer.

Here is season 8 winner Melanie one of my favorite dancers ever. The dance is about two best friends, one of which is left at the alter, and he realizes his true love has been standing in front of him all along.

And finally the one that makes me cry every time I watch it. Its choreographed by the amazing Mia Michaels and the piece is about addiction and the terrifying effects it has on a person. Kayla portrays the hopeless addict and Kupono represents the addiction. Powerful.

BONUS VIDEO: To prove how much talent these dancers have check out Twitch (easily my favorite person who has ever danced on this show) dance with BALLET dancer Alex. Insane on how Alex picks up this hip hop. Talent people. Talent.
