How to watch ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ for free

FOX

Highly skilled dancers showcase their talents as they climb to the top.

It’s not just a caddy question, it’s also the longest running television dance competition, not to mention, the most heart-pumping one. After all Soul Train never went this hard.

Open auditions take place in cities across the U.S., open to 18-30 year-olds who can, as a wise man once said, “get jiggy with it.” Dancers who manage to impress the scrutinous judges move onto the main stage where they must perform again, this time…for America. The beauty of it is the dance styles featured are as diverse as the country, featuring everything from classical to street and club styles, and even moves straight out of the world musical theater. Soft shoe has never been this hardcore. 

The show’s 16th season features the return of ballroom dancing expert Mary Murphy, who joins the illustrious panel of choreographers including  Beyoncé’s own Laurieann Gibson, and show creator Nigel Lythgoe. Lythgoe, besides being the most British man alive, was also the dude who developed choreography for the Muppets.
