yep! Thanks Rose for the post here - without it I would've missed the episode yesterday for sure. It was interesting - a lot of dancers in TO, eh? Smile

Velina, see the next episode of SYTYCD-Ca is on Sunday Sept. 14, 8:00 PM.
Cheers!

Any comments on the first show? How are the judges? Any contestant stand out in the crowd?

IT WAS FANTASTIC!
I watched the whole thing. There were a couple of familiar salsa dancers from the regular Babalu's Wednesday crowd as well as many phenomenol free-style/ jazz / ballet dancers...

It was so impressive that even one of the judges, Mary Murphy, was just constantly saying..."are we in Canada or is this a different planet. They have the best dancers hidden in this country!".

It was truly fantastic and the class and level of dance was far better than what I expected. Truthfully, after seeing things like Canadian Idol and how "uncool" it can be, I thought to myself, this show will be another lame one...
TURNS OUT IT IS AMAZING!!!

I STRONGLY RECCOMMEND YOU ALL GET HOOKED ON IT!!! I would like to keep this discussion going...

Starting next week, we should decide who is our favourite dancer for each city!

Keep on dancing!!!

Oh yeah, Mary "the Queen of Scream" was very impressed by many dancers in TO, so she screamed a lot Laughing Luckily (for us and for her voice) she'll be only a guest judge in this show Smile
The judges seemed OK overall but sometimes too easily impressed by aspect, favoring or disfavoring based more on the looks than on the skills. For example see that incident with the guy with "trance" eyes (Osvaldo) and the intervention of Blake (the choreographer) for him - quite a funny moment:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZJ4m55UFWg
The point is, they should've told Osvaldo what was wrong with his dance, not that they didn't like his eyes. Come on, that's unprofessional. Too bad we didn't see the choreography performances...

Well I guess that was all of the auditions in Toronto, but I don't know who would be my TO favorites now, maybe the guy who slashed his chin Smile , or Natalli Embarassed ?

Valentin,
I agree a 100%. The feedback was not referring to the dancing but to his eyes. I think that they should have provided constructive feedback on the dancing and definitely given him a chance at the choreography. I am curious how he did there.
On a separate note, Blake is just as gutsy as he was on the first SYTCD show. I can't wait to see him on the panel. There will be drama:-)

I am still not 100% who my favourite is...I'll now after the first set of performances as couples!
What did you guys think?
By the way, Velina, There WAS lots of DRAMA with Blake! Smile

There is always drama with Blake, otherwise it would be too boring.
I also have not decided on favorites yet. I am going to wait for the first show to see who stands out.

Hello Y'all!
Well, I just watched the first top 20 show for So you think you can dance Canada and it was amazing.
After seeing all the routines, I have to give a heads up to Lisa and Vincent for a phenomenal contemporary routine, though it was their niche. My favourite dancer, though, is probably Danny the ballroom master and my favourite routine of the night has gotta be the first salsa routine by Nico and Arrasay. I thought to give a shout out to Nico for his keeping up with the salsa craziness and for someone who has never done salsa, he was amazingly into it. As Jean-Marc clearly stated, he made Nico into Rico from Puerto Rico!

Who were your favourites gang? Keep em comin!

No doubt Arrasay has some sexy moves. I really enjoyed that performance.
Overall, I am still not decided who my favorites are though...I will wait till next week.

I really like Arrasay, I think she has a lot of soul when she dances.
