So You Think You Can Dance returns to the BBC for a second series this year with Cat Deeley and the judges search for a dance act to be crowned Britain’s Favourite Dancer.
This years’ judging panel will be Nigel, choreographer Arlene Phillips, dancer/choreographer Sisco Gomez and pop sensation Louise Redknapp. They will critique the contestants competing for the title and the prize fund of £50,000.
Talented competitors from all over the UK will come to parade their unique take on hip-hop, Latin, contemporary, commercial, jazz, and any number of free-style moves, in a bid to win over the judges.
The top 20 contestants, who make it through both the auditions and choreography camp, get to perform in front of the nation live every Saturday night.
Each week they’ll be taught to perform a new routine by world-renowned choreographers. Viewers will then have the opportunity to vote for their favourite dancer, and for one guy and one girl who don’t hit the mark, the journey ends each week.
The results programme is also where dancers get the opportunity to showcase their skills in a visual extravaganza as they take part in a weekly group performance.
So You Think You Can Dance is scheduled to return on the 26th of March, with live shows beginning in April 2011.
