Too much turmoil and not enough smiling isn't good for a girl...
This week, Chicklet and I sat down to watch SYTYCD Canada's first competition show. We'd been watching the auditions and a few dancers had already caught our attention. We picked the performances that made us go SQUEEEEEEEEE and WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
The judges are:
Luther Brown who has choreographed for the likes of Shawn Desmon and Keshia Shante;
Blake McGrath - a canadian dancer from season 1 of SYTYCD USA and a fierce choreographer;
Tré Armstrong who starred in "How She Move" and has worked with Missy Elliott and Sean Combs;
and last but not least, Jean-Marc Généreux (choreographer extraordinaire for SYTYCD USA) and a possible distant cousin of mine as he and my maternal grandmother share a last name!
So far, we've enjoyed watching just how talented the Canadian dancers are who are vying for the priviledge of becoming Canada's favourite dancer.
Now, I'll be frank. Nico Archambault... Oh My WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! and swoooooooon!
Montreal boys...mmmmmmmmmm! Yup... he comes from MY backyard! Nico is a lyrical dancer... but he HIT this first number!
Arassay Reyes is a hot thang... and Travis, she's got LEGS LEGS LEGS!!! and baby, HIPS HIPS HIPS!
And this dance started off the season.. a salsa by Gustavo Vargas! MUY Caliente!!!
So you know who I voted for...
The next couple I wanted to share with you is Lisa and Vincent-Olivier (another sweet thang from my backyard)...
They're both contemporary dancers and this routine was breathtaking... it was magic. Stacey Tookey did an outstanding job with this choreography... wow!
I voted for them too...
This couple... Allie and Danny (another Montreal boy *sigh*)!!
They are the CUTEST thang! Here they are doing a great rockabilly 50s jive choreographed by the UBER talented Melissa Williams.
And Jean-Marc is right: CHEMISTRY!!!
I voted and voted and voted!
There are some outstanding dancers in this competition. We're quite pleased... yup!
