So You Think You Can Danica Episode 8: Lollipops & Ginger Ale

STYYCD Logo

Last week saw the finale of Season Fifteen of So You Think You Can Dance, and your friends Danica and Devin watched it almost live! Day-of, anyhow, which is a rarity for them. In the latest episode of So You Think You Can Danica, your excited hosts get into the nitty gritty of the last show of the season. And also get a little silly. In this episode, Danica and Devin talk about dance interns, the G-rated activities that professional dancers get up to in their spare time, department store tourism, stellar tap routines, the Creative Arts Emmys, John Legend’s EGOT, a call to action for the proletariat, Dustin’s awesome smiling face, and their hopes and dreams for next season (which is surely coming, right? RIGHT?).

Also, in case you didn’t know: in the SYTYCDanica off-season we’re going to be reviewing dance movies! From Ginger Rogers to Channing Tatum to Hrithik Roshan to Cyd Charisse, we’re going to discuss great moments of dance on film and also veer wildly off into a variety of other tangents. So please tell us about your favourite dance movies; we’d appreciate any and all suggestions!

So You Think You Can Danica Episode 7: Give Robert Your Vulnerability

STYYCD Logo

Last week we all watched the Top Four Episode of SYTYCD, and hopefully it got you as jazzed as it got Danica & Devin. Your hosts were pleasantly surprised with the Penultimate Pre-Finale, which featured a number of fantastic routines. Heck, even our least-favourite dancer acquitted themselves adequately. On the seventh episode of So You Think You Can Danica your fearless hosts discuss a number of topics, including: the ascension of Genessy, giving credit when credit is due, detachable ponytails, Piaget’s developmental theories about conservation of volume, motivational workplace rhymes, Sabrina The Teenage Witch, celebrity baby names, the difference between cover bands and tribute bands, our show’s new producer, plans for Finale Night, and a brief moment of human emotions. And of course, we talk about our choices for who’s going to take the number one spot. Plus: news about the future of the podcast! SYTYCD might be going away for the season, but SYTYCDanica isn’t going anywhere.

Did you emotionally survive the Top 6? Because we’re not going to lie to you, dear listeners: the SYTYCD Top 6 episode has taken an emotional toll on your intrepid hosts. And talking it out in the most recent So You Think You Can Danica is what’s getting us through it. So join Danica & Devin as they talk about how to process grief, the return of Robert (and the rest of the All Stars we guess), controversial Kiki opinions, surprise comic recommendations, Dance Buds (TM), impromptu stunts, All Stars showing their choreography chops, New Movie Recommendations, and possibly the most important routine in SYTYCD history. Also, because we have to, the results, and our dream Top Four dancers compared to what we ended up with. Please, friends. Explain this outcome to us.

Plus, the first eliminations of the year! It’s just another week on So You Think You Can Danica!

The top ten formally arrived in last week’s live show and So You Think You Can Danica is here with all the news that’s fit to print! In the third episode, hosts Danica LeBlanc and Devin R Bruce discuss everything about the first performance episode of SYTYCD Season Fifteen, including (but not limited to): Travis Wall’s stunning opening group number, the importance of George Michael, fair and unfair judge criticisms, just exactly how many power couples there are in this season, casual racism, and their picks for the the most impressive dancers and who are most in danger for this week. And of course, the pretty, pretty clothes. (Seriously, the costumes are amazing this year.)

So You Think You Can Danica Episode 2: No One Is Young, Everyone Is Restless

STYYCD LogoBeloved and fan-favourite podcast So You Think You Can Danica has made it through the grueling Academy week and is ready for the big show! In their second episode hosts Danica LeBlanc and Devin R Bruce review the second four episodes of So You Think You Can Dance Season Fifteen. They discuss the entire Academy process, which favourites got cut early, how great Travis Wall’s hair and beard combo is, their hopes for returning All-Stars, and the unnecessary nature of That Big Twist. They also talk about who was unfairly cut from the main show and who inexplicably made it through. And all this after Devin said “I don’t know if there’s much to talk about” during the first minute. Come on, Devin. You gotta be smarter than that, buddy.
