What’s Worth Watching: ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ on Fox for Tuesday, July 21
So You Think You Can Dance, “A Decade of Dance Special Edition” (Tuesday, July 21, 8/7c, Fox)
Anyone who has watched So You Think You Can Dance faithfully over the last 10 years will likely recall a number of astounding performances and routines that moved them to tears or got their pulses racing with the sheer exuberance and joy—and, most important on this show, variety—of dance. After taking care of business on Monday with the first round of eliminations from Team Stage and Team Street, Dance celebrates its first decade of terpsichorean delight in an hourlong special—my only complain: Why can’t it be two?—featuring live performances and productions by past fan-favorite dancers and choreographers.
Over 11 seasons, So You Think You Can Dance has amassed 13 Emmys, eight for choreography: three for Mia Michaels, two each for Wade Robson and NappyTabs (aka Napoleon and Tabitha Dumo) and one for Tyce Diorio. This is as good an opportunity as any to see why, and to see Dance at its finest. (And is it wrong for me to want to see at least one Bollywood spectacle? On this show, they’re amazing.)
