*Every* time I watch Jeff Mortensen do that gloriously fluid sequence (pinche – cartwheel – handstand turn – lay back on floor) it kills me dead. *Dead*, I say!

(And, you’re right: JR is indeed very “Twitchy”)

I’m more impressed by people who can dance well who haven’t gone to school for it for years, as all of these entrants clearly have.

This is a mindset that is totally alien to me. “I like creative efforts better when the people involved haven’t spent a lot of time trying to make themselves better at it.” What? No, seriously. What?

Luca is downright amazing. I’d absolutely love it if he got on the show – but would it turn in to routines centered around his particular abilities?

You mean like how B-boys inevitably get choreo that lets them do a lot of groundwork? :)

Sadly, although Luca got sent through straight to the second round and advanced through the hip-hop and theatre stages (interpreting the choreo to stuff that he could do on his crutches), he got cut thereafter because it was dead obvious he couldn’t do ballroom.

I loved the one to Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies. (You just know that girl’s mom stuck her in ballet classes as a kid and she was always coming in with skinned knees and a dirty face and then messing around making up dances of her own in the corner.)

@SilverMoonWolf: Yeah…what?
I’m impressed by people who dance well, and the better someone dances, the more impressed I am (I mean, as far as I can tell what ‘good’ dancing is)… I fail to see where their having training fits in.

I was so sad when we lost track of Janayne (tapper) and Sarah (hip hop) in finals week. I don’t even know if they got there and got cut, or what, since it was apparently so far between auditions and finals due to the Olympics.

And with JR, it’s a combination of the movement and the humor, I think, that makes me dream of the day that he and Twitch might be put together on a stage.

Dunno about Janaye, but Sarah showed up (briefly) in the “final cut to 22” episode on Sunday, so she made it to final round.

Can I import SYTYCD Canada stateside somehow? I’ve lapsed into total non-care with the US version and I would like some more of what I am seeing in this video instead. I do not want to THIEVE it from you, Dear Neighbors to the North, just to observe from a respectful and loving distance.

It seems to me these people are able to blend genres much more fluidly than their American counterparts. Any time ballet and hip-hop can be done together means I’m that much more interested.
