It features commentary from five, highly successful, professional dancers, who are at the top of their game including: Tiler Peck, a New York City Ballet Principal dancer, Tap dancer and “Stomp” cast member Michelle Dorrance, Dallas McMurray, a member of the Mark Morris Dance Group; Anthony Rue II, the hip-hop dancer/choreographer/artist known as “Ant Boogie”, and Brittany Marcin, a former Rockette who is now appearing in the Broadway revival of “Follies.”
They all sat down in a Brooklyn apartment, and shared their thoughts and feelings on one of the recent episodes of ‘So You Think You Can Dance‘. I think you’ll find this article quite interesting, and eye-opening.
One of my favorite quotes from the article is, “These dancers wouldn’t stand up to dancers in New York” stated by Brittany Marcin.
What do you think about ‘So You Think You Can Dance‘?
Do you think it’s really helping dancers, and creating more interest within the dance landscape from non-dancers?
Do you think that this interest and excitement will translate into more funding for dance companies, and better paying jobs for dancers?
