Dance, Dance

Happy Friday, Palmettos and Peaches fam! While you’re munching on your free doughnut in honor of National Doughnut Day, I thought I’d share some art with you.  One of my favorite dance quotes is:

To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking.Agnes de Mille

I may not always dance, but I’ll always be a dancer. On Monday, the premiere episode of So You Think You Can Dance’s 12th season aired.  For a decade, the routines on SYTYCD have made me laugh and cry and just feel. A lot of people say they don’t “get art”. I would say that dance is one of the art forms that can make you feel things – even if you don’t have a connection to dance itself. I love SYTYCD because you don’t have to be a dancer to respond emotionally to the amazing choreography that is showcased week after week. I know plenty of people who have never stepped foot into a dance studio (unless to perhaps, drop a little sister), who enjoy watching the show.

I’ve picked 12 of my favorite routines (plus a bonus because it was hard even editing this list down to 12), for you to take a look at.

So what did you think? Did a few of the dances make you smile? Dance? Cry? You can catch So You Think You Can Dance, Monday’s on FOX.

Any readers out there SYTYCD fans? What are some of your favorite dances from past seasons? Leave a comment or tweet me at @donnicakelsey.
