One thing I love about SYTYCD is we get exposed to many types of dance--ballroom, jazz, broadway, contemporary, hip hop, etc. In recent years, they've even started including some international styles of dance (Bollywood, Russian folk, Polynesian).
What are your favorite styles of dance? Are there certain types you're more likely to take an interest in and other types you're more likely to tune out? Do you prefer certain choreographers to others?
Are there any types of dance that haven't been featured on the show yet that you'd like to see? Any types of dance that you don't like?
I took ballroom dancing lessons so I have the most interest in that style. When I first started watching the show, I didn't like the hip hop or contemporary routines at all and sometimes they're still iffy but I'm getting to like them better.
I don't really have a favorite choreographer on the show, although I'm getting to like Nappy Tabs better and better since the routine they did for Alex and Twitch. I used to like Mia Michaels' routines and wish she was doing choreography for the show again. A choreographer I'd like to see on SYTYCD is Kenny Ortega. I've been a fan of his since watching Xanadu when I was a kid.
I don't think they've ever had a ballet routine on the show, although I would guess that's because it takes many years to train in ballet so your body can do it. It's not something they can teach a dancer who has never done it before in a few hours. It would be interesting for them to try it, though, since so many of the dancers auditioning for the show have had some ballet training.
I also don't think they've ever had a flamenco routine on the show. That would be really interesting to me!
One style of dance I absoutely hate is tap dancing. It drives me up the wall. So annoying!!!
