Abstract

This paper aims to explore the choreography on the American version of the television programme, So You Think You Can Dance. It will particularly examine dance pieces with an emphasis on choreographic craft, rather than elements of TV production. Work by choreographers Napoleon and Tabitha D’umo and Shane Sparks will be used as case studies as their choreographies have been accredited with the creation of a new genre of dance Lyrical Hip Hop and a discussion of how elements of their choreography contribute to this title will be presented. When exploring beyond the spectacle of TV there is still a place for choreographic craft and this can be found within the performances on So You Think You Can Dance.
