So You Think You Can Dance Top 14

There was only one dance routine today that i like was:

Dancers: Michael and Renelle
Choreography: Paul Malek
Genre: Contemporary

This was such an amazing routine, the story was about someone who care more about the next drink rather than his partner. So much heart poured into this routine. The emotion was just unbelievable and yes it brought tears to my eyes.

So You Think You Can Dance Top 18

Top performances of Sunday night

Dancers: Ashleigh and Jay
Genre: Lyrical
Music: ‘One’ by Damien Rice
Choreographer: Debbie Ellis

This piece just made me sit in a state of silence. I felt like i was visiting their world of sadness. The dance was about what it is like to nearly loose someone. All those emotions running through your head about the last time you saw them or the last thing you said to them. It was a touching piece with impeccable emotion conveyed through their dancing. This phenomenal dance routine just shows what Australia has to over the dancing world pure perfection.

Dancers:Maddie and Chris
Genre: Contemporary
Music: ‘My Love’ by Sia
Choreographer: Sarah Boulter
This amazing number was about ‘love’. Well i guess we all have our own view of what love really means. Is it the love for the materialistic things? or love for the people around us?. This piece was inspired by Sarah Boulter’s parents who this piece was about. It was about finding your soul mate and knowing that they will be together forever. The love between two individuals is a piece of magic and that is what this dance routine was, just magic!.

So You Think You Can Dance Top 20

It is that time of week again where the top 20 dancers of So You Think You Can Dance Australia perform partner pieces choreographed by both international and national choreographers. Tonight dancers were all partnered up with someone from the opposite sex. They were then given a genre of dance to perform. My top picks from the night are:

1.  Dancers: Zoey and Sam
Choreography: Paul Malek
Song: Audra Mae’s ‘forever Young’
Genre: Lyrical
Image

This was an extraordinary piece about a women who loses her daughter and her son who is still alive. ‘Sam’ who danced as the the son had to convey both strength for his mother and grief. ‘Zoey’ was perfection, her emotion and the performance was flawless. Zoey conveyed the loss of a daughter very well. They both danced a very strong routine with an incredible story that moved the audience to tears.

2.Dancers: Patric and Lauren
Choreographer: Chris Scott
Song:Tracy Chapman’s classic ‘Fast Car’
Genre: Hip Hop
Image
This routine had a lot of meaning to the choreographer himself. This meant a lot to him as it was about leaving his father. The background of this piece was that Chris does not come from a wealthy background and that it was a struggle to live the life they had. Chris felt guilty for leaving his father and this routine to him was ‘a love letter’. This piece was perfectly executed and the story was well told. The technique was so beautiful and moments like these just draw you into their world.

3. Dancers: BBoy Blond and Eden
Choreography: Stephen Tannosq
Song:  Lorde’s haunting cover of ‘Everybody wants to rule the world’
Genre: Contemporary Jazz
Image
This was definitely a wonderful piece. The attention to detail of every move with props was amazing. They both gave the dance everything thing they had with wonderful technical aspects to their moves. BBoy Blond was far away from his genre (urban) but managed to do a wonderful job with his partner Eden. It was a very sharp and strong piece of choreography. Very powerful!!!!! Love it!

So You Think You Can Dance Top 20

Tonight was the start of the top 20 performances for SYTYCD Australia. After being given the opportunity to participate with the top 100 and meeting the dancers in a television commercial for the top 100 it was great to see them on stage. It was also great to see Australian choreographers on the show as well as a family friend Tiana Canterbury

There were so many amazing performances though my top pick of the night is……

1.  Song: Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Rey

Choreography:Chris Scott

This piece was definitely number one of the night. It was an emotional and touching piece about struggles of young girls/women being pressured by society/the media to act or look a certain way. It was a strong piece beautifully expressed by the top 10 women and easily connected with the audience as it is an on going issue within society that so many young girls face. It explicitly showed women sticking together and an understanding of what some young teenagers may face. The choreography was very well put together especially with dancers specialising in different genres.
