“SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE” RETURNS FOR 12th SEASON IN SUMMER 2015

NEW “STAGE VS. STREET” FORMAT INTENSIFIES COMPETITION

FOX has renewed the Emmy Award-winning SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE for a 12th season. From 19 Entertainment, a division of CORE Media Group, and dick clark productions, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE will return in the summer of 2015 with a dramatic new twist.

Throughout the auditions, the dancers who advance will be placed into two teams – the STAGE dancers, featuring those trained in styles such as contemporary, ballet, jazz or tap; and the STREET dancers, hopefuls skilled in hip-hop, animation or breaking.  As the auditions continue, the judges, along with each team’s All-Star Mentor, will eliminate dancers until only the Top 20 – 10 Street Dancers and 10 Stage Dancers – remain. When the competition goes “live,” the Top 20 will be challenged weekly to perform a variety of styles, working with world-renowned choreographers. One dancer from each genre will be eliminated each week leading up to the Season Finale. Who will win…a dancer from the stage or the street? Find out when SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE returns in summer 2015.

“SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE is a rare jewel.  It combines high art with mass entertainment in a seamless, sophisticated and hugely satisfying way,” said Simon Andreae, Executive Vice President, Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “It’s produced and consumed with tremendous passion and it’s developed one of the most deservedly loyal followings in all of unscripted television.  We are immensely proud to be returning it to the schedule with a thrilling new twist that will bring it up to date and introduce a whole new set of rooting opportunities.”

“The competition is going to be much more exciting for viewers and even more demanding for the dancers,” said co-creator and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe. “Dancers from different genres have always been competitive with each other and we’ve found a great way to harness that to bring out the absolute best performances in the best dancers across the country.”
