We know that I love American Idol. (What did you all think of Erika’s departure this week? Man, that’s rough- chop all your hair off, dye it black and what do you get in return? VOTED OFF. Thanks A LOT, Tommy Hilfiger.)
However, one of things I love most about American Idol is the knowledge that the next season of So You Think You Can Dance must be right around corner. Oh, I love SYTCD. I’ve written about it several times so I’m not going to bore you, but I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Tears on a weekly basis, people. The love. Of the dance. (Also, do you know who the spokesperson for Pantene Aqua Light in the UK is? Cat Deeley. We’re like besties if, you know, “besties” means we’ve never met and I just watch her on television like the rest of the world.)
Okay. So, guess who else loves SYTCD? Mr. Wito Man. He will watch an entire episode with me without squirming, and I’ve noticed him trying to reenact some moves now and again. His favorite style (judging by his attentiveness) is contemporary (atta boy), and he’s all about the leaping. Especially flying leaps that land in some sort of full-body rolling release on the floor.
I had the pleasure of witnessing some of Wito’s choreographed stylings at a recent wedding. You guys, this is what I would call a…well, let’s just call it a beat boy/contemporary mashup. Please enjoy.
