It’s week two of the Dance Academy on “So You Think You Can Dance”. After a round of Hip-Hop choreography with Tabatha and Napoleon, only 62 of the original 100 dancers who entered the Academy remain.
This week it’s Contemporary with award winning choreographer Travis Wall and Ballroom with award winning dancers Jenna and Dmitri.
This season it isn’t up to the judges who moves on but the All Stars. And this season each All Star will choose four dancers for their teams before naming the one dancer they will mentor this season. Last week a few of the dancers made it on to a team.
Travis tells the dancers that it is a difficult individual dance where he isn’t looking for robots but wants to see some individuality. To that end, each dancer must freestyle the beginning of the dance.
In this round the dancers will learn their fate right after they dance.
Robert said that he wants Taylor on his team…and gets her.
Jonathan and Jennifer also joined Robert’s team.
Just because a dancer is on a team, doesn’t mean they are safe, they have to work to stay on that team.
Cyrus wants to see Havoc dance for his life but his partner Classic didn’t make it through.
In the end 14 more dancers went home; leaving only 48 dancers to fill 40 spots including Havoc. Cyrus noted that he asked Havoc to dance for his life and that is exactly what he did.
A total of 30 dancers are now on an All Star’s team with 18 still looking for a spot. Each All Star has only one slot open to fill their teams.
Now it’s on to the Ballroom. The dancers have only an hour to learn a Cha Cha. This is the last chance to prove who deserves a spot on the team.
Jenson completes Robert’s team.
Forty dancers remain and they are all on a team; but one more thing remains before the day is over – the group round where the teams must create a dance through the night to perform the next day.
At the end of the dances each All Star must eliminate one dancer.
Paul’s group was up first and he felt like he wanted more. Paul chose to eliminate Vasily from the team. He auditioned with his wife Kristina.
Alison’s group was up next. Allison said they were all beautiful and did a great job. Calling it one of the toughest decisions she had to make, Allison chose to eliminate Kevin from her team. But it wasn’t quite time for Kevin to go home; Jenna stepped in and took Kevin for his team.
Now two dancers will be eliminated from Jenna’s team.
Cyrus chose to eliminate Christina.
With the elimination of Magda, another team is broken up.
Jenna’s team is the last group on the dance floor. After saying that they all played their characters perfectly she chose to eliminate Alexis and JJ.
By the end of the day only 30 dancers remain for the next round.
Next week the Academy comes to an end with Jazz and Sonya Teyeh.
