Archive for the ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Category

This was my favorite dance from last year!! “The Door Dance,” as I call it at least. Definitely one I picture doing in my head. 🙂

For a repressed, pretend dancer like myself, Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” is both joy and torture wrapped up into two, two-hour shows each week! Every summer, here it comes…right on the tail of “American Idol.” I was never in dance classes (apparently I didn’t want to sweat. right.) but I love moving around and shaking it to whatever music is on the radio like I have been professionally dancing for years!

To watch the dancers on this show is simply amazing. The way the bodies of these incredible and talented individuals move…it looks so natural and so easy. I love that the show features all types of dances and makes each look as important and necessary as the next. It never fails that my husband will hear the phrase, “man, I really wish I could do that!” I just can’t help it. I do with I could do that and ALWAYS pretend like I can. I promise the dance in my head looks PHENOMENAL!!

Time to dance
Time to dance by laurasteen featuring Christian Louboutin shoes

Using SYTYCD as inspiration, I wanted to put together an outfit I would wear should I suddenly discover the talent it takes to be on the show and feature the outfit I would wear to the audition but…this dress caught my eye instead. hah. Of course Louboutins to make it pop and the earrings for a little more color, ala Cameron Diaz at the 2007 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala.

Not really…but his twin, Steve Martin, was! 🙂

I have always thought that my dad looked just like Steve Martin. Seriously, I think they are definite twins. The structure of the face, the expressions they make…so similar its scary!

Anyway, who knew Steve Martin played the banjo? Apparently the LA Times did, all the way back in January. http://articles.latimes.com/2009/jan/31/entertainment/et-martin31. Interesting. S. Martin has a blue grass banjo album…kind of want it! Looks like he teamed up with some pretty big names in this genre and I like it!

So…American Idol finale…what did you think of the show? Wow was it slam-packed with tons of celebrities and all-star performances! I love the finale just for that reason – all of the amazing performers who come to sing with the current contestants.

AND I LOVE THAT KRIS WON!!!!!!!!!!! I think he has such a fantastic voice and will do amazing as an American Idol. Conner thinks Adam will have a better career (we have a bet on a trip to Europe…that my mom is talking about taking us on, this could probably be news to my dad…that Adam will have a better career than Kris…I really hope not because I want my husband to go to Europe with me and my family in a couple years!) but I don’t know. Kris has a voice that everyone will listen to. I think Adam will do fantastic on Broadway but Kris will be better mainstream. We shall see this time next year! (When the bet ends) 🙂

All right AI – had a great season but now on to shooby-dooby-dooby-dance, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE!!!!!!! Season premiere tomorrow night on Fox. Bring it on, baby!!
