So You Think You Can Dance – Season 6 – Los Angeles Auditions

No Live blogging tonight…this is a place holder. I’ll be back with videos later…

Tonight, the So You Think You Can Dance premiere episode features the Los Angeles auditions. I’m going to include only the good stuff here, including a couple of auditioners you will recognize from previous seasons…

Adam Shankman is the LA guest judge.

If you’re curious about the fate of some of these peeps, check out the spoilers HERE.

Videos after the JUMP…

Mollee Gray – 18 – Upland CA – Mollee is from Utah and was a principal dancer in High School Musical 1 2 and 3. Nigel thinks she’s as cute as a bug in a rug, but that her personality does not come through in her dancing. I tend to agree–she’s got some nice technique, but she’s not very interesting. However, she does earn a ticket to Vegas – VIDEO.

A quick trio of contemporary dancers: David Hovhannisyan – 27 – Wauwatosa, WI, Amanda Kirby – 20 – Riverside, CA, Brandon Dumlao – 21 – Concord, CA – You’ll miss them if you blink once. All three earn a ticket to Vegas – VIDEO

Ryan Kasprzak and Bianca Revels – If you watched Season 5, you might remember these two. Ryan is the brother of Top 4 contestant Evan Kasprzak (they auditioned together) and Bianca is the tap dancer who said she’d never ever ever audition again after she was cut in Vegas. Ahem. During Bianca’s audition, Ryan is called to the stage and the two engage in a pretty hot tap off or “trade” and I daresay, Bianca won that one, handily. – VIDEO.

By the end of the first day, 9 other dancers make it through choreography to advance to Vegas…

Amber Williams – 18 – Yucaipa, CA – When she was about 10, Amber’s mom became paralyzed from the waist down after an operation went wrong. She’s been taking care of her ever since. Nigel tells her she’s a beautiful dancer, but lacks some charisma. Mary and Adam love her. She gets a ticket straight to Vegas – VIDEO.

Alexie Agdeppa – 25 – Rowland Heights, CA and Paula Van Oppen – 18 – North Hollywood, CA – quick glimpses of two contemporary dancers who make it to Vegas – VIDEO

Christina Santana – 23 – San Diego, CA – She’s a sassy salsa dancer, and she makes it to Vegas! VIDEO.

Phillip Attmore – 25 – Pasadena, CA – This is the tap dancer who will beat Ryan Kasprzak for a spot on the Top 20 (I predict). Watch for it. Three tap dancers were featured tonight–at least one will make the show. I bet it’s this guy. He is really good. – VIDEO
