‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Atlanta auditions
Four years ago, hundreds of “So You Think You Can Dance” wannabes converged upon the Fox Theatre and it was barely above freezing. The dancers were miserable.
This past Saturday, Atlanta weather was far more cooperative and the crowd was far more upbeat. They danced, they made funny faces, they yelled “Welcome to the ATL!” A group spelled out “ATL.” Anything for a few seconds of camera time.
Atlanta wasn’t even originally on the audition itinerary. But due to Nigel Lythgoe’s schedule, they had to move it from Charlotte. This will be the third time the city has hosted “So You Think You Can Dance” auditions in eight seasons. Surprisingly, Atlanta has not had a single representative among the finalists of the first seven seasons.
