I can honestly say I really enjoyed the So You Think You Can Dance Canada performance at GM Place. I know. Shocking. The cast of male and female dancers had talent and were not afraid to flaunt their taut little bodies in a plethora of barely-there outfits that were quite pleasing to the eyes of the decked-out middle-aged Mommies, their 15 year-old daughters, and the 3 dudes in the audience. And oh boy did they love it. I’m still mostly deaf from their ear-piercing screams, “We Love You NICO!”
What I liked most about this show was that the dancers seemed so genuinely happy to be there. They demonstrated the power of passion in everything they did. I can image that for most dancers, performing in front of a stadium full of screaming fans would be a heavenly experience. For these 10 dancers, touring in one of the biggest dance acts in Canada must be enough to make their little hearts explode.
And for my jaded and cynical self, a moment of seeing actual talent, instead of cherry chapstick’d gunk, gave me a little hope. Maybe Britney won’t be so bad after all. Maybe Not.
