So You Think You Can Dance 2010

My SYTYCD tour show posts are starting to sound like a broken record... (see years 2007, 2008 & 2009!!) this makes 4 years in a row!!  Let's call it a tradition instead... one of my absolute favorites.  From when it was a small tour show w/ Benji and his crew, to the year I went a mere 8 days after giving birth, to this year where the stage mom's were worse than the kids!!  And of course, it wouldn't be a show w/out my fearless sidekick/sis' Ashlee.  We loved it - all in all, it was a FABULOUS SHOW... I think my favorite year so far.

For anyone who cares, read on!!

I was worried about what dances would be done since many that were in a lot of my favorite numbers (twitch, neil, anya etc...) were not actually going to be on tour.  All my worries were set aside when they started the show off w/ a BANG... literally!  My chick bang (eeek, the song title I know... and I hate to admit it, but this was one of my FAVORITE dances of the year!!) with Lauren and Russell the Krumper.  It was AWESOME and set the tone for an amazing show.

There were some really cool new dances... LOVED the group Bollywood number and the hip hop boys trio.  Lot's of good contemporaries and of course all the NappyTab Faves (Fallin' had Lauren w/ Adecheke and it was great).

Skip to the end: the "prom dance" w/ Lauren and Kent.  Such a cute dance, but the best part was the segway into "my first kiss".  What a SMOKIN' way to end the show.  They killed it.  Both were amazing live... must give a shout out to Robert who was one of my favorites and was amazing live as well. (borrowed pic from Katie's site - thanks K! fun to have a different view)

Call us crazy, but it is TRADITION, so we stayed a whopping three hours after the show to say hi and take pics w/ our favorite dancers.  Of course we met up w/ our buddies Katie and Audra so we could swap cameras, but this year it was P A N D E M O N I U M.  And I have to say there were some pretty crazy stage Mom's.  We're talking Mom's coaching their daughters on how to kiss the dancers in pictures and Mom's yelling at their kids to cut through to get pics.  TOO crazy.  

The dancers were gracious and nice... Robert was my favorite.  Kent was extremely ambushed and overwhelmed.  Ash and I decided we might be over it... It was fun though

Can't wait for next year!  Until then, keep dancin'!!
