America's favorite summer series, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, has kept viewers amazed and inspired as talented dancers skilled in everything from Hip Hop, Krumping and Popping to Salsa, Quickstep and Jive compete to be named America's Favorite Dancer.

Those who shine during auditions are given a ticket to Los Angeles for callbacks, where they work with top choreographers to learn and then be judged on multiple styles of dance.
In the search for America’s favorite dancer, some contestants will collapse under the pressure, some will reveal two left feet but only one will dance his or her way into the hearts of the nation.
