SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE” RETURNS FOR 12th SEASON IN SUMMER 2015
NEW “STAGE VS. STREET” FORMAT INTENSIFIES COMPETITION
FOX has renewed the Emmy Award-winning SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE for a 12th season and auditions are underway. From 19 Entertainment, a division of CORE Media Group, and dick clark productions, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE will return in the summer of 2015 with a dramatic new twist.
Throughout the auditions, the dancers who advance will be placed into two teams – the STAGE dancers, featuring those trained in styles such as contemporary, ballet, jazz or tap; and the STREET dancers, hopefuls skilled in hip-hop, animation or breaking. As the auditions continue, the judges, along with each team’s All-Star Mentor, will eliminate dancers until only the Top 20 – 10 Street Dancers and 10 Stage Dancers – remain. When the competition goes “live,” the Top 20 will be challenged weekly to perform a variety of styles, working with world-renowned choreographers. One dancer from each genre will be eliminated each week leading up to the Season Finale. Who will win…a dancer from the stage or the street? Find out when SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE returns in summer 2015.
