Show Summary

Based on the popular American show of the same name, So You Think You Can Dance Australia was a reality dance contest that brought professionals and amateurs together, performing a variety of dance genres from ballroom to hip hop, as they competed against each other for a prize of $200,000. Host Natalie Bassingthwaighte (Rogue Traders, Neighbours) with judges Bonnie Lythgoe (producer of the original American version), Jason Coleman (choreographer) and Matt Lee (reknowned Australian dancer), the show ran for three seasons before being cancelling in favour of a new-style dance program slated for 2011.

  • Paula - Your Dress!

    Girl, what were you thinking, "I can see what you had for breakfast". What's with the can fly in this skirt"? It looks like a parachute over a floor fan. Cover it up love.

    Love the show though.
  • Mediocre judges bring down the show.

    Does not compare with the US or Canadian versions of the show in either the overall quality of dancing or judging. Bonnie is incredibly boring while the others made comments and decisions that make no sense. There are some mind-boggling choices made by the judges to retain marginal dancers at the expense of better dancers. For example, one dancer always had his tongue hanging out but not a word was said by the judges. Yet this "standard" does not apply to other dancers who receive negative feedback for "chemistry" or lack of eye contact. I guess hanging your tongue out like a dog during a waltz is considered OK. It wasn't until almost the top 12 group was formed that the lesser dancers were all eliminated...finally.moreless
  • So You Think You Can Dance would have to be one of the best dance shows out there and our Aussie version is awesome!

    So You Think You Can Dance would have to be one of the best reality tv shows out there. I learn ballet, pointe, tap and funk myself so I know how hard it is just to learn a couple of dances but the performers on SYTYCD are so dedicated and put in so much practice. They're all absolutely amazing. This season my favourite has gotta be Tahlia and Charlie. Tahlia is an amazing ballerina and does so well in pretty much every style and Charlie is so funny and cute. I can't wait till the finale and I wish all the best to all of the top four!moreless
  • So you think you can dance is the best dance show out there!

    Oh my God, I love dancing. This show is the best dance show out there. Especially for those of us who don't want to watch shows like Dancing with the Stars. This show is about new, fresh, amazing talent and I like the audition part the most. Watching al the different styles of dance, the different outfits, different personalities and different backstories. I love the music they choose to audition to and I'm amazed at some of the dansroutines the choreographers come up with. It invites you to change the way you look at a certain style of dancing or makes you listen to a song you heard a thousand times in a completely different way. I am a true fan of season 2 of the american version (couldn't download 1 so that's a shame) and currently watching the australian version. Cheers, mate!moreless
  • Australia's version of So You Think You Can Dance.

    Being such a huge fan of SYTYCD-usa I was totally floored to see Aussie's version of it. After having watched the first few eppys..I was soooo hooked. Though the format is pretty much the same as the states, the presentation, visuals, production, music, editting, etc I think is so much more above par. They were successful in making it more appealing...more dramatic....and in some cases....very moving and inspirational. They really seem to present it in a more empathetic light. The judges are on point but also possess a caring warmth when it comes to reaching out to the contestants. I love how they guide and support the dancers more technically rather than coldly criticizing as most of these types of shows do. By having judges that are more feeling and human I think it's made the show much more engaging. I love love love the show! Still faithful to the states SYTYCD but have to give credit where it's due...props SYTYCD-AU!! Good on ya mate!! (the aussie-speak is kinda infectious!)moreless

    TEN does Stop Believing

    Network TEN had done a backflip on plans to stage its all-singing, all-dancing production Don't Stop Believing in 2011.


    2011 the year of the talent show

    If you thought 2010 was the year of the talent show, wait until you see what's in store for 2011.
