Contemporary dance is my absolute favorite style of dance for that reason. Choreographers and performers alike delve deep into their own lives and the lives of others and pull inspiration for their routines from these experiences. The art form is all about transforming these stories into movements and taking your audience on an emotional journey.
When the producers of So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation paired ten-year-old J.T. with seasoned pro Robert, it’s hard to believe that such an age gap could be beneficial to pulling off the perfect routine. J.T. and Robert proved everyone wrong when they blew the judges away with an emotional story of an adult man looking into the mirror and seeing his younger self staring right back.
