Second season of So You Think You Can Dance Canada

By Marie Claire Forté

After a successful first season, with an average of 1.4 million viewers per episode, So You Think You Can Dance Canada will return for a second season this fall with much of the original cast. MuchMusic VJ Leah Miller will host the show alongside permanent judges Jean Marc Genereux, ballroom dance champion; and Tré Armstrong, contemporary/funk dancer and choreographer. Alternating judges will include the commercial dancers and choreographers Blake McGrath and Luther Brown. So You Think You Can Dance Canada holds cross-country auditions to select twenty dancers to perform in the season’s premiere show. Learning and performing various styles for the camera, dancers are then voted to remain on the show by viewers each week. The winner receives a cash prize and a car. Following the television show, the first season’s top ten dancers, including winner Nico Archambault from Montréal, toured the country with a live stage performance.
