SYTYCD Miami Auditions

So You Think You Can Dance was back in Miami after 4 years and they definitely brought the heat. There were a variety of different dancers that gave it their all. The guest judge was choreographer Tice DiOrio; I think he was a bit too critical and just downright mean to some of the dancers. Miami had great contemporary, ballroom, tap dancers, and much more.

The Art of Ballet

Although a dancer's grace creates the illusion of effortless movement onstage, the art of ballet demands intense physical and mental discipline from its students.

So You Think You Can Dance

My favorite show of all times, So You Think You Can Dance, started last week and I am so happy. Every summer I look forward to this show. I lock myself in my room and need complete silence since I am so involved in this show. I get very passionate and emotionally involved with the show. Every year I wish/wanted to tryout for the show but I am always too scared and nervous to go and actually do it. Maybe one year…

The show is filled with very talented people that are skilled in all different types of dance from ballet to hip-hop. The people that try out, no matter good or bad are all very passionate about dancing. Dance is a great form of expression; it is very powerful and moving. The one thing that bothered me about the show is when they are trying out and the judges don’t like the way some people dance; they shouldn’t be so harsh and criticize them. I feel as though no matter how “bad” you dance you shouldn’t make someone feel bad about it. If it makes them happy that should be enough, it doesn’t matter how you dance it just feels good.

Miami City Ballet

Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body.

I was dubbed the nickname "twinkle toes" because I developed a habit from ballet class; I am always walking around on my tiptoes. I was a ballerina for 12 years of my life; I first started off doing tap, jazz, and ballet but really took a liking to ballet and stuck with that. Sadly I had to retire because I was at a point in my ballet career that I would have to commit to it five times a week and become a professional ballerina. I have regretted that decision every day of my life wishing that I never stopped. Fortunately I still have a place for it in my heart.

My ballerina habits have never left me and sometimes when no one is home I put my toe shoes on and just dance. I watch every dance show that comes out, especially So You Think You Can Dance; it sends chills up and down my spine. Dance is my love, my passion, and my life. So dance like no one is watching…
