This is by far and away why I love So You Think You Can Dance. Last night, ballet dancer Alex Wong pulled Twitch’s name from a hat, and after a little confusion, danced one of the most entertaining, surprising, and overall killer hip hop routine ever to grace their stage. The whole point of the show is to challenge people who excel in one area, and see if they can shine in a different style. Alex showed that ballet dancers, who sometimes can be typecast, can get down with the best of them.
The routine, by Tabitha and Napolean (known as NappyTabs) was sheer genius: Twitch as a therapist, and Alex as his patient, who is suffering from a big case of not being able to get out of his own style. Once the session got underway, the audience went crazy, and solidified Alex as a top contender. Have a look and comment your thoughts.
