Thanks, Angelskates.....he loves what he does. I'm glad you enjoy his photos too.
Jemima-Anthony is a real sweetheart too. I only worked with him for one day, but what a gentleman! I hope he makes it through all the political and TV BS that we know these shows are rife with. He is a very, very fine modern, contemporary, ballet dancer.
Giselle Peacock and Henry Byalikov (sp?) were also on Superstars of Dance, that awful show Nigel produced a couple of years ago. I never finished watching that show, but I remember them. Also, Henry was on So You Think You Can Dance Australia, so I'm surprised they would let him audition here.
I love Teddy. Just love him.
Ok, am watching the Miami part now. Did Teddy actually get through?
I missed the show Thurs (cause I was attending a dance concert ) and finally got caught up, but it was via youtube videos, so I know I didn't see everything and it was all out of order (why doesn't Fox put SYTYCD on hulu? )
Very happy that almost everyone I saw was good, even those who didn't get through (like the Iso-Lock guy). Loved the Czech ballroom guy, Tyrell, Henry, Ami-the-mom. And I loved Megan, although from the clip of her doing choreo I get why they didn't send her through. There's a woman in town who is short and very round, who got turned down by the local arts college "because she might hurt herself" and she's one of the most amazing hip hop dancers I've ever seen (great at modern too). She does get work in some local productions....BTW, I really wish the show would at least acknowledge that there are dance careers outside of big companies and commercial work.
Loved the Troma guy - that was a great performance and I'm glad they recognized it. How fun
Ugh, haven't accepted the reality that there will be only 10 new dancers this year. I feel like I've got at least 5 I really want to see on the show this summer already!
If the all star list were more to my tastes - at least I could say to myself - "well that dancer didn't make the top 10 - but at least it was so I could see more of Danny / Will /Katee / Jaymee etc.

I'm willing to give the all stars format the benefit of a doubt. If nothing more than for providing 12 weeks of decent pay for the selected dancers. Those checks are a LOT more than summer festivals and guest appearances at comps pay!

SpoilerAll I want is Alex Wong to make it through to the top 10....
I know from spoilers who all made it to Vegas. I just need them to give me someone to watch after Vegas.
Re: Billy and Alex
I think Billy is probably the one who made it. I have this gut feeling. The reason we didn't see Alex is that I'm pretty certain they gave him a pass straight through to Vegas from last time.
I hate to think that this is another Natalie Reid incident and he'll get to Vegas and the judges will say, 'No, sorry there are better dancers this time...'

I loved Anthony Burrell too. I also thought I saw a glimpse of Alex Wong doing a jump on the beach in the Miami auditions portion.
SpoilerBilly Bell recently started a dance company so I wonder if he'll have conflicts and they'll defer him to next year. He is still very young.
I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
SpoilerI'm pretty sure that Billy and Alex both made it. Nigel is just playing games. There isn't going to be a top ten-but a top 11 cause there is one extra guy.
