Storyline

Dancers skilled in everything from ballroom and ballet to salsa, jive, hip-hop and krumping, all compete to be named the best. Dancers must impress the judges with their moves and rigorous routines in order to survive the auditions and be invited to Hollywood. Producers traveled to Chicago, New York and Los Angeles in search of dancers who represent the soul and rhythm of America. Some dancers wow the judges, while others leave them speechless. See who struts into the producers' hearts and who trips up on the series premiere. A fortunate 50 dancers who survive the auditions will go to Hollywood to work with five of the top choreographers in the business: Alex Da Silva, Brian Friedman, Dan Karaty, Mia Michaels and Mary Murphy. During the "Hollywood Week," the semifinalists will dance their hearts out, as they learn challenging routines and hope to impress the choreographers. Written by Jiilo_Kim

Great season except for Cyrus
19 September 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Usually this show is a "can't miss" in my house. The dancers and choreographers are amazingly talented and the judges' comments are insightful and fair. That came to an end this season with the coming of Cyrus. In the entire season he was never given a dance way outside his comfort zone. There is no way he would have been able to do ballroom, disco or Bollywood. When he was given contemporary, his portion of the routine was dumbed down to hide his obvious weaknesses. While the judges criticized other dancers on such technical points as subtle hand movements or slightly incorrect toe-pointing, Cyrus' major shortcomings (such as the inability to move his hips) were ignored. I can only hope this mistake is not repeated next season.
