So You Think You Can Dance

My partner in crime and I will be attending The So You think you can Dance final 16 performance tomorrow, generally we struggle to break it down on the dance floor but weve always been of the mindset that the aim of dancing is not to sweat.
We wont lie, were definitely there for the Obama (OpenBar) and the free chow cause were black like that and how often do you get to recoup your TV license cash and drink on the SABCs tab?For those who haven't seen So you think you can dance, lemme break it down.
Dancers skilled in everything from ballroom and ballet to salsa and hip-hop compete to be named the best dancer in South Africa.

The show starts with a nationwide casting call where dancers must impress the judges with their moves and routines to survive the auditions. Those who do are invited to a dance 'boot camp' where they're put through their paces by top choreographers.

Only the best 20 move forward to the studio shows where they learn challenging routines and dance their hearts out individually and in pairs to impress the panel of judges and the audience, who play their part by voting.

The winner receives prizes to the value of R250,000.
I've seen the American version of the program and with every episode I've been blown away by the talent that's on show, I'm only hoping that the standard of dancing is on par with what the Americans produce and its not like some rehash of Jika Majika cause that'll really grate my nipples.
Trust that we will post and let you know what we think of the South African version of "So you think you can Dance,"  fishfinger style!
