E: Summer, where have you gone? Don’t leave me! As if the school calendar weren’t creeping close enough, we see the turning of the seasons in the dwindling number of dancers on So You Think You Can Dance. Only the very top are left now, as we chug closer and closer to the finale. Even Cat is looking ready for fall with her long sleeved blousy top, black with tiny white or cream roses, and a glittery rose broach at her throat.
I love the opening number so much I’m kind of embarrassed to find out after that it was choreographed by Tyce DiOrio. Blech! It’s terrific, though — set in a library with the dancers dressed in Adams family garb. All four girls wear the same black Wednesday Adams dress and the same black braided wigs, Megz the only one breaking slightly out of the mold with glasses. The boys wear short pants and suspenders in a variety of black and white stripes, with Derek standing out the most in a v neck college sweater. There’s lots of evil finger waving under mischievous chins, and hopping on and off of wooden chairs to “Lillies of the Valley” from the Pina soundtrack. For me, Jaja’s face and Gaby’s dancing are the highlights.
