Really hope we see more of his work this season

    Yea SYTYCD!!!
    Yes, Nick seems to have a Broadway-style training similar to Jess'. He was the guy in the back left corner doing the a la seconde turns/pirouettes/double tour en l'air behind Jess toward the end of the men's group number. He was also with the group of hip hop dancers doing the floor work at the beginning of that number. He seems to be one of the most versatile dancers they've had in a while.

    ETA: link to men's group number

    ^ this was what I noticed most - he has lovely technique but can do hip hop convincingly as well. I wonder how his ballroom skillz are, because everything else seems very high level. I can't wait to see what he can do each week.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    Nick's A Tap/Jazz/ballet/mother owned a studio kid. Also he took a year and pretty much studied what ever he could so yeah he's trained. He took gymnastics as well.

    Nick's bio is here. What I found most interesting is the amount of performing experience he has. Unless he has a brain freeze, he's probably a lock for Top 10.

    Ah, he must be the guy who was identified in the spoilers as the "ballet dancer." It sounds like he has broad training. I'm suprised Nigel hasn't pimped him. A midwestern kid who has that versatility and is a jock? Nigel's dream come true. I'd think that Nigel would see him as the second coming of Kent.

    Nick seems to lack one thing that Kent had in spades (thank heavens): the irritation factor.

    I thought that was Alexander Fost. He's a ballet dancer.

    Did they show his audition? I don't remember a male ballet dancer's audition. Maybe I missed it. Watch, someone will tell me that he did a sexy dance as a firefighter.

    No, they didn't show his audition. I'd have remembered. I think we just got to know him on the Green Mile.

    Speaking of ballet dancers, Nigel tweeted that Alex Wong wasn't ready to compete when the show started but he hopes
    Alex will be able to be an all star.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I would think it's an insurance issue. Without full medical clearance, it would be very risky. I doubt Nigel wants to be known as the one who "ruined Alex forever."
