Today, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE All-Stars, along with Honorary All-Star First Lady Michelle Obama, taught the “#GimmeFive” Dance at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. The “#GimmeFive” theme of this year’s White House Easter Egg Roll celebrates the fifth anniversary of Mrs. Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative.
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Season 12 Mentors tWitch and Travis Wall, as well as All-Stars Jasmine Harper, Marko Germar, Robert Roldan, Dominic ‘D-Trix’ Sandoval, Phillip Chbeeb, Comfort Fedoke, Fik-Shun and Kathryn McCormick, participated in today’s event.
This summer, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE returns for its 12th season 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.
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE returns Monday, June 1 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
