Joining fan favorites Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy at the judging table for auditions and the Academy rounds are Emmy Award nominee Laurieann Gibson, Lady Gaga’s longtime choreographer and creative director, and Emmy Award winner and SYTYCD alum Dominic “D-Trix” Sandoval. Cat Deeley returns as host.
The dance competition series spotlights highly skilled dancers between the ages of 18 and 30 who compete in contemporary, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, animation, breaking and more to secure their place in the SYTYCD studio, competing each week for America’s votes. Contestants will be eliminated weekly until a winner is named on the season finale.
