Dance Appreciation Week: Guest Post: Kaitlin on Her Favorite SYTYCD Routines

Today I have Kaitlin @ Reading is My Treasure to talk about her favorite SYTYCD routines! How awesome!

So You Think You Can Dance

*Waves hello to readers*

First of all, I want to thank Jessica for letting me do this guest post!

Thank you, Kaitlin! :)

Am I a dancer? No. Not one bit. I don't even like to dance very much. However, I have a soft spot for TV shows and movies that revolve around dance. So much creativity and passion goes into great dance routines, and I love to see that. There's a lot of beauty in dance, as well as a lot of fun.

One of my favorite dance TV shows is So You Think You Can Dance. My mom and I started watching it in its second season (man, that feels like such a long time ago), and it quickly became one of my favorite shows to watch! It's my favorite dance related show (though I haven't been that into the last few seasons), so I decided to share some of my favorite dances, dancers, and choreographers from the show.

Joshua and Katee dance contemporary piece choreographed by Mia Michaels.
Joshua and Katee are probably my favorite pair of the entire show. That season itself, I think, is my favorite out of all of them. Also, Mia Michaels is one of my favorite choreographers. This is a very, very good dance.

Twitch and Katee dance contemporary piece choreographed by Mia Michaels
Twitch is another favorite of mine! This routine is really fun.☺

Sabra and Dominic dance hip routine choreographed by Shane Sparks
Sabra and Dominic are also one of my top favorite pairs. I always looked forward to their dances! I also always looked forward to any of Shane Sparks' dances. This dance is one of the most memorable for me.

Joshua and Chelsea dance Argentine tango choreographed by Dmitry Chaplin
I love the Argentine tango! Put my favorite ballroom dancer and Joshua together for a routine and what do you get? A pretty awesome dance.

Top 16 dance contemporary routine choreographed by Mia Michaels
So many great group dance routines have been danced on the show, but this is one of the most memorable to me. The song ("The Dance" by Charlotte Martin) became a favorite of mine after seeing this routine, and I love how strange and creative the story told by the dance is.

Audrey and Matt dance contemporary routine choreographed by Travis Wall
All of the above videos are from season four (except for the hip hop one, which was in season three), but this one is from season nine! Like I said, I haven't gotten into the last few seasons of the show, but I have to add this video because Travis Wall is an amazing choreographer.

That's all the videos I have for this post. I hope you enjoyed it.☺

My question for you: do you like to watch shows and movies that are focused on dance?
