The Vietnamese version of the original American dance competition “So You Think You Can Dance” will be launched in big cities across the country next month.
All Vietnamese professional and amateur dancers aged between 16-30 can take part in the contest in Can Tho on July 21 or in Hanoi from July 31-August 3.
Other selections will be organized in Danang from August 5-6 and in HCM City from August 11-14.
Former Dance Sport Champions Khanh Thi and Tri Anh will be among the contest judges. Earlier, they also judged the recent Vietnamese-version of Dancing with the Stars.
Other guest judges include hip-hop dancer Viet Thanh, who had a significant contribution to spreading the style in Viet Nam in 1990s, young female choreographer Tran Ly Ly and her Vietnamese-Canadian counterpart John Huy Tran.
Like the original format, the Vietnamese version will feature dancers from varieties of styles, including classical, contemporary, ballroom, hip-hop, street, club, jazz, and even many sub-genres within these categories.
After a selection process, where judges choose competitors from a wide pool of applicants, 20 finalists will be selected for the competition phase, where they will vie for votes from TV audiences.
Premiering in July 2005, the original “So You Think You Can Dance” was created by Simon Fuller, who is also the founder of high-rated reality shows American Idol and X-Factor.
