So You Think You Can Dance Live! leaps through Detroit

Staff Pick


  • Adam Rose/FOX

Not all hope is lost for the clumsy, uncoordinated, two-left-footed folks of the world, thanks to So You Think You Can Dance, Fox network’s Emmy Award-winning dance competition sensation.

Since 2005, SYTYCD has given people less skilled in the dance department an opportunity to cheer on contestants who can swirl, twirl, and pirouette like the pros — and maybe learn a move or two. Taking their show-stopping Samantha Jo “Mandy” Moore -choreographed routines from the screen to the Fox Theatre stage are the top 10 contestants from SYTYCD season 15, including fan favorites Jensen Arnold, Genessy, Castillo, Jay Jay Dixonbey, and winner Hannahlei Cabanilla.

SYTYCD Live will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25 at Fox Theatre; 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-3200;; Tickets start at $55.
