    YOUR SYTYCD All stars

    So Season 7 is over. Who are your favourite dancers from all the seasons?

    I saw little of Seasons 6 and 2 - so my list comes with that shortcoming:

    MALES*
    Alex / Danny
    Will
    Blake
    Nick
    Twitch
    Pasha
    Brandon
    ETA - Jesus

    * Pretty sure that Travis would be in there if I had seen more of his dances.

    FEMALES*
    Lauren (2010)
    Sarah
    Katee
    Jeanine
    ETA - Jaimie

    * Pretty sure Allison - and probably Kathryn would be in there if I had seen more of their dances.

    This are the top, from S2-7 (didn't watch S1), that I'd love to see compete as an All-Star edition of this show. It was really hard to pare down the guys. And looking through the seasons, S3 and S4 were just ridiculous with spectacular guys.

    Guys:
    Danny
    Pasha
    Twitch
    Mark K
    Will
    Ade
    Evan
    Russell
    Alex
    either Billy Bell or Jakob (similar strengths)

    understudies in case any of the above couldn't make it: Jesus, Dominic, Hok, Joshua, Gev, Legacy

    Dolls:
    Allison
    Donyelle
    Lacey (don't like her, but gotta admit she was good at just about everything she tried)
    Anya
    Katee
    Melissa
    Janette
    Jeanine
    Ellenore
    Lauren

    Understudies: Heidi (personally I'd rather see her than Lacey), Sabra, Sara, Jaimie, Randi, Kayla, Kathryn

    I would also add Comfort at the level we saw in S7. Not so much the Comfort of S4.

    I was puzzling over my answer to this question, but then you posted, so I just edited your lists. In no particular order, other than the #1:

    Guys:
    Mark
    Danny
    Pasha
    Twitch
    Will
    Ade
    Benji
    Russell
    Alex
    Jesus


    Dolls:
    Allison
    Donyelle
    Lacey
    Anya
    Jaimie
    Melissa
    Janette
    Kayla
    Ellenore
    Lauren

    I want to put Heidi and Hok in too but I have to stop at 10.

    If I could I'd bump Will and Janette off the top ten and replace them with Lisa Auguste and Vincent-Olivier Noiseux from SYTYCD Canada.

    I'd also like Billy to guest dance on most of the kick-off shows. Somehow he wasn't a good fit as a contestant, but he's one of my favourites ever to watch.

    I wish there was somewhere I could go to watch the first 4 seasons of SYTYCD.

    Is the Blake you speak of Blake McGrath? He choreographs for the Canadian show quite regularly. I think I remember someone telling me that he'd been on the US show.

    Try idolforums. They have a subsection dedicated to discussions and media from previous seasons of SYTYCD.

    I saw very little of season 1. In particular, I can't remember any girls from that season. I finally decided to break it down to ten total men and women like many of the rest of you did. The guys came really, really easy to me. The girls were much more of a struggle for me to narrow down.

    Men
    Blake
    Dmitry
    Danny
    Pasha
    Mark
    Twitch
    Will
    Ade
    Jacob
    Alex

    Women
    Allison
    Lacey
    Sara
    Jaimie
    Anya
    Katee
    Jeanette
    Melissa
    Ellenore
    Lauren

    My format for the show:

    10 Choreographers:
    Wade
    Travis (Is this why he isn't on our lists for a dancer?)
    Mia
    Sean Cheesman
    Nappy Tabs
    Sonja
    Dee Caspary
    Melanie/Tony or Jean-Marc/France
    Stacey
    Tyce (just to see him go off first)

    And the choreographer/dancers combo all get eliminated each week.

    Not for me - I think Travis is a very talented dancer, but there are too many other contemporary guys from the show that are just as technically gifted and appeal to me far more.

    No particular order
    S1 - Blake, Nick, Ashle, Melody, Artem
    S2 - Allison, Travis, Benji, Dmitry, Donyelle
    S3 - Danny, Jaimie, Hok, Jesus, Sara
    S4 - Will, Joshua, Katee, Chelsie, Mark, Twitch
    S5 - Jeanine, Brandon, Janette, Kayla, Ade, Melissa
    S6 - Kathryn, Ellenore, Russell, Jakob
    S7 - Alex, Lauren, Billy, Robert

    Dancers who got eliminated too early:

    Jesus (should have been Top 6-10 at least)
    Allison (should have been final 4 at least)
    Will (should have been final 4, but his season was full of charisma - couldn't have 4 guys in the final 4 - I would also have Mark in the final four, but where would I put Twitch and Joshua?)
    Cristina (should have been there longer than Melinda anyway)
    Billy (I thought he and Alex would be in the finale)

    Dancers for whom I had really high hopes, but they just didn't gel:

    Craig DeRosa
    Ben Susa
    Karla Garcia
    Asuka Kondoh
    Kevin Hunte
    Pauline Mata
    Alexie Agdeppa

    It is amazing how many people have Mark K as a top dancer. He is my absolute favourite dancer ever, but like Stojko...is better at executing rather than technique.

    His hiphop number with Chelsie "Bleeding Love" from NappyTabs is one of my all time fave SYTYCD pieces ever.

    Mark was definitely a much better performer than technician, I've watched some of his old pieces from Season 4 from a technical perspective and some were a little but he's and an awesome performer. His technique has improved since his season though.
