Okay, okay…call me crazy but this tribute to So You Think You Can Dance was inevitable. I’ve been in love with this show since Season One. We’re dawning the end of Season Five now and throughout the seasons, my love has never faltered. The show has brought so much joy in my life (yes…I’m talking about a TV show). Never would I have imagined that I could be moved by dance the way I am week after week. Take Travis Wall’s choreography above, for example. I watched this routine over and over again and couldn’t help but cry! It’s stunning! An absolutely gorgeous sequence…proof that actions speak what words can never say…Like Debbie Allen so eloquently said when critiquing the piece, this show has transcended the levels of competition…it’s become a conversation. It is just that. A conversation. A conversation through movement that the mass is only now taking an active part in.

So yes…I love So You Think You Can Dance. I love it because it’s allowed me to discover and appreciate yet another dimension of human expression…
