Tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance 2011 auditions in L.A. did not disappoint. Aside from the weird dude dressed as Santa Clause, most of the dancers were pretty outstanding. Hip-hop dancer Patty Anne Miller was my very fave. I would love, love, love to see her in the top 20. Her personality really stood out from the crowd and she made such a memorable impression. I hope she can dance well in other genres so she has a good shot in Vegas.

Among many other noteworthy contestants tonight were Jordan Casanova, who danced a provocative yet graceful routine, and Arielle Coker, a return auditionee who danced an intense performance that Nigel called “mesmerizing.” Also worth mentioning were Hiro Mcrae, a talented and strong dancer who came from Japan and taught herself English in four years, and Derion Chapman, whose entertaining audition awed the judges.

Tonight’s talent alone has got me excited to see what these dancers will bring to Vegas. Until next week…
