So You Think You Can Dance

I loved to dance when I was a child. In fact, I was taking dance classes five out of seven days of the week. Unfortunately, I didn't' have the coordination or flexibility to ever be any good. No one could argue, however, that I didn't have the heart. I loved expressing myself through movement and enjoyed being on stage. Perhaps this is why I LOVE the show So You Think You Can Dance.
While I am not a huge fan of reality TV, I do look forward to this show every Wednesday. I might even call it the highlight of my week. It is not like other reality talent shows where the uncomfortably bad is mixed with the good. Everybody on the show is talented. I don't know how they can get their bodies to move like that but they do and I like to watch. The choreography is just amazing, too.
If you watched the show last year you know that Benji, the geeky Mormon dork, won. Rightfully so. He was brilliantly fun to watch. His sister Lacey is on this season and is almost as watchable. She suffers, however, from what was ultimately the demise of last years contestant Natalie. She smothers the audience with his synthetic cuteness and sexiness. I also like Anya, the Latin dancer from Russia. She is a spicy girl.
Other than those two, I don't have favorites yet. The season is still young.

I have to admit I do enjoy your spirited and very cordinated bum dances especially when you do them right in front of the game. Suddenly the game just isnt important anymore as my head sways back and forth with the bum dance movement. I hope this is a private coment. HEHE
