'So You Think You Can Dance': Everything You Need for the Season 16 Premiere

Season 16 SYTYCD Auditions

Photo credit: Adam Rose/FOX.

Guys, Season 16 is almost here! I call So You Think You Can Dance my "happy bubble" and #DanceChristmas because it is everything all rolled into one. It's the best summer camp you could ever attend and I attended Stagedoor Manor back in the day... so you know I've set the bar high.

I will have a new article for you on Dance Network and fresh video interviews during the audition rounds on Tuesdays. Once we hit the live shows on August 5th, I will be backstage giving you the inside scoop.

Before the show premieres, make sure you have all of the latest information on this season. I'm posting everything you need to know right now and if you've heard my recent Patreon podcast, you already know there's something special in the works.

Let's get ready with your Season 16 primer!
