Selection Reminder: So You Think You Can Dance Tour!



Saturday, September 17So You Think You Can Dance Tour

From her elegant audition piece, which had already won amateur competitions nationwide and elicited thoughts of “Zeus” and “Mount Olympus” from the judges, to her charmed pairing with contemporary dancer Marko Germar and finally her crowning as America’s Favorite Dancer by a suffocating margin, Atlanta’s Melanie Moore snagged most of the attention this season on TV’s best reality competition. But every summer around this time, we’re left only with the dances to speak for themselves. Luckily, there’s more to this tour than Moore’s stream of heart-stoppers: There’s also runner-up Sasha Mallory’s astounding “wall dance” to Meshell Ndegeocello, Germar’s dirge-like Sonya Tayeh-choreographed routine (Modern Family actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s self-proclaimed favorite), and how can we forget Caitlynn Lawson’s smoking Argentine tango? Add that to the Cirque-worthy group numbers and this tour looks less like an obligatory cash-in and more like one of the more artistic events you’ll see all year. – Justin Strout (7 p.m. at Amway Center, 400 W.
