US talent series is gettin' down with the kids for Season 13.
US talent series So You Think You Can Dance has been renewed for a 13th Season.
But FOX is shaking up the format with junior dancers.
Variety reports the next season will see dancers between the ages of 8-13, who are skilled in contemporary, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, animation or breaking, paired up with All-Stars.
“We are so happy to bring back the award-winning So You Think You Can Dance for a 13th season this summer with a brand-new format,” said David Madden, President of Entertainment at FOX. “The series has captivated its loyal fan base for over a decade, inspiring young dancers across the country and transforming the face of dance in every medium – and we’re so excited to feature a young and talented new group of performers on the series.”
“Through the Dizzy Feet Foundation, I’ve had the great privilege of working with incredible young talent who will eventually shape the future of dance in this country,” said co-creator and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe. “By evolving the So You Think You Can Dance format this season, we can showcase the very best junior dancers out there and open up the world of dance to a whole new generation.”
Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo will all return as judges, with Cat Deeley once again hosting.
It airs in Australia on ELEVEN.
