About So You Think You Can Dance
So You Think You Can Dance is set to be the smash hit of 2008! After the US series proved a ratings winner, Network Ten has embarked on the local version to showcase Australia's best undiscovered dancing talent. Host Natalie Bassingthwaighte's breadth of performance experience will be complemented by a stellar judging panel including international producer and acclaimed choreographer Bonnie Lythgoe, events guru and choreographer Jason Coleman and one of Australia's brightest dancing talents and choreographer Matt Lee. So You Think You Can Dance Australia puts dancer against dancer, following them through a gruelling 12 week competition. The winner will receive a cash prize, a 'money can't buy' experience and the title of Australia's favourite dancer!
Over the past few months, Natalie, Jason, Bonnie and Matt have travelled across the country in search of Australia's best dancers. A short-list of more than 100 talented dancers were then invited to Sydney where they worked with some of Australia's top choreographers including Kelley Abbey, Nacho Pop and Jason Gilkinson. During this week the judges had the difficult task of determining who would make it through to the Top 20. Each week the dancers will be challenged to perform different genres of dance including hip hop, contemporary and ballroom, and the viewers get the chance to have their say by voting for their favourite.
So You Think You Can Dance Australia is produced by FremantleMedia Australia for Network Ten. It is based on the original format created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe from 19 Entertainment Ltd. and dick clarke productions.
