Really talented dancers from different styles. Great dances in all different styles. Judges generally are helpful and knowledgable. Producer willing to make changes based on fan response. Cons: Biased judging at times. Casting of some dancers as filler. Too many contemporary dancers.
This show is great when it comes on during the summer (not the fall). It really allows dance to take center stage and gives some very lucky dancers a chance to show what they've got. Cons: I wish it wasn't about America's favorite dancer. Often, there are extraordinary dancers, but they are overlooked in favor of some terrible dancer that America finds funny (or attractive, who knows?).
