So, think you can dance?

Many people may have been sucked into last summer’s hit reality show, “So you think you can dance,” yet again for another amazing season. This fall they kicked off their world tour with the top ten contestants of the show including some special appearances.

On Saturday, Oct. 6 America’s top ten favorite dancers performed at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. The Boardwalk Hall is a huge arena on the boardwalk in A.C. and it was pratically filled with tons of fans dying to see their favorite dancers.

The following are the names of the finalists who participated in the 2007 tour; Sabra Johnson, Dominic Sandoval, Lacey Schwimmer, Kameron Bink, Sara Von Gillern, Pasha Kovalev, Jamie Goodwin, Danny Tidwell, Neil Haskell, and Lauren Gottlieb. The guest appearances were contestants who didn’t make the top ten but were some of America’s other favorites from season two. These dancers were Shauna Noland, Anya Garnis, Hokuto Konishi and Jesus Solorio.

The show was two and half hours of complete dancing. It contained different types of dancing ranging from the quickstep to krumping. There was a half-hour intermission for the finalists to be able to catch their breath. Every performance was different then the last and was performed to the best it could be.

The dancers performed their most memorable and loved performances from the season. They also had a few new performances to spice up the concert. Each dancer did a solo performance. They also performed with partners like that on the show and of course did several group performances. Each dancer was introduced thoroughly and put their own personality into their performances, which allowed you to know and love them even more than before.

Neil and Danny were the crowd’s favorites especially when they did their male duet. Sabra, the winner of season two, seemed to be sick and wasn’t performing to her best. This disappointed many fans who loved and voted for her.

Some other disappointing factors in the show were some contestants, who were in the top ten, only got to perform once or twice. Also some performances that I would have loved to see were not done. For the most part, however, the concert was absolutely amazing. It is one thing seeing the performances on television, but a whole other thing in real life. You don’t understand how great these performers can dance until you can witness it first hand.

The search for America’s next favorite dancer begins on March 1. The first stop is New York City. The producers will then move their way to Chicago, Los Angeles and Atlanta.
