Recap: 'So You Think You Can Dance' hits New York and Salt Lake City
Did you know Salt Lake City is THE place to find dancers? Or that at least it is if you’re “SYTYCD”? Me neither. But six top twenty performers have come from Salt Lake, and for tonight’s show we’ll be seeing the Salt Lake auditions and the New York auditions. Take notes, because I’m pretty sure we’ll be seeing a chunk of our future top twenty tonight, at least if the producers pick their footage wisely.
[Full recap of Wednesday's (June 1) "So You Think You Can Dance" after the break...]
Samantha Hiller of Atherton, California is the final dancer of day one. Three weeks ago she had mono, fainted and woke up with amnesia. She didn’t know her sisters, family or her own name. Oh, and she doesn’t remember the show. Boy, mono is a bear! But hey, she remembers how to dance. We keep cutting to her mom crying during her audition. Really, I wish they wouldn’t, as she’s a decent dancer and we don’t need the soap opera worthy storyline. Robin thinks she has a lot to learn but is very good. Mary thinks her story is extraordinary and this she did a relatively good job. Nigel thinks she has a lovely style but her elevation isn’t good. She gets put through the choreography.
