When I first watched this dance routine on the TV show So You Think You Can Dance, I actually forgot to breathe. It captivated me, and I forgot to breathe. The top seven women on the show were amazing as they danced to the Evanescence song “My Immortal” on the July 30th episode.
About this particular dance routine
The choreography and the way the dancers all carry it out is an amazing package. It is a gift, truly, because it spotlights the beauty of the female form and the amount of emotion these ladies express during the routine.
In just under two minutes they portrayed emotions that included love and angst. They brought beauty front and center as well as intrigue and true heart. It’s pure, raw, and wonderful.
The routine was choreographed by a woman too, making it the ultimate tribute to what women can accomplish in dance. Choreographer Mandy Moore, a regular part of the TV show, created the amazing dance routine. What I find fantastic is the way the female body can express in dance so many emotions without any of these seven talented ladies speaking a single word.
I hope you enjoy the power of these top seven women from So You Think You Can Dance in this video as much as I do. Thank you to this TV show for spotlighting all that women have to offer to the dance world (and so many other areas too, of course!). Bring on the female power!
