Chronology

Auditions were held in Los Angeles, CA, Chicago, IL and New York City. 100 dancers were selected by the judges for the Dance Academy portion of the season, in which 10 finalists were selected by, and paired with, "all-stars" from previous seasons, who mentored and performed with them during the live performance episodes.[1][3]

JudgesEdit

Series creator and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, along with new permanent members Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo, returned as members of the permanent judging panel and judge the audition rounds. After this, the fourth judge, 14-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler, joined the show.[4]

FormatEdit

Season 13 featured a significant shift in format in that the contestants were all between the ages of 8 and 13 at the time of auditions. Approximately 100 dancers were selected from the auditions for the next segment of the season, the Dance Academy. From these, the top 50 were chosen, and finally the top 10 were selected as finalists by a So You Think You Can Dance "all-star" who provided mentorship during the live shows and participated as a duet partner with his or her contestant in performances.[3][5]

AuditionsEdit

Open auditions for season 13 were held in three cities beginning in February 2016.[3][6]

Air Date Audition Venue City Audition Date
May 30, 2016 Orpheum Theatre Los Angeles, CA February 27, 2016
June 6, 2016 Lou Conte Dance Studio Chicago, IL March 11, 2016
June 13, 2016 Broadway Dance Center New York City March 18, 2016

During the audition round, the judges interviewed each auditioner, watched a brief audition and gave feedback, while the auditioner's family sat at the side of the stage and often participated in the interviews. Offstage, Cat Deeley chatted with contestants and judges. Approximately 100 dancers were sent through to the Academy.[7][8]

Dance AcademyEdit

Dance Academy week was split among two episodes. The June 20 episode covered the first day of the Academy. The first task for the 10 all-stars was to watch solo dances by each of the competitors who were sent through from the auditions. From these, each all-star selected five dancers (at least three from their own dance style), from the large number of auditioners, to join their "team". If a dancer was selected by more than one all-star, he or she could choose which all-star's team to join.[9][10] Choreographer Warren Carlyle and the all-stars then taught the 50 remaining competitors a Broadway couples dance routine in 90 minutes, and dancers from each team were paired with dancers from another team.[10] After all of the couples danced, each all-star was required to cut one dancer from his or her team, leaving a total of 40 contestants. Throughout the episode, Maddie Ziegler and Cat Deeley interviewed successful competitors.[9][11]

The June 27 episode covered days two and three of Academy week. On day two, the all-stars each narrowed down their teams to three and then two dancers, based first on a hip-hop routine for pairs choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon D'umo, and then on a contemporary routine, created by Travis Wall, danced simultaneously by the remaining three members of each team.[10][12] On the last day, the last two dancers from each team danced a solo just for their own all-star. Each all-star then selected one finalist, making a total of 10 finalists that he or she will mentor through the finals round.[13][14] The all-stars and their finalists are:[11][12]

PerformancesEdit

Top 10 (July 11, 2016)Edit

The live shows were all two-hour broadcasts. The first live show, on July 11, 2016, opened with a group dance by all ten contestants dancing with their all-stars and all together, futuristically dressed in white. In the middle of the show there was a contemporary group dance by the all-stars, and the show ended with a group hip-hop dance by all of the top-ten contestants. During the show, each contestant performed one solo and one duet with his or her all-star; both dances were in the contestant's primary dance style.[15][19] At the beginning of the show, host Cat Deeley announced that all-star Joshua Allen has been replaced by Marko Germar, to mentor and partner with hip-hop dancer Sheaden Gabriel.[16] Maddie Ziegler observed the contestants' rehearsals and joined the judging panel, during the broadcast, giving the contestants "relatable feedback" and offering encouraging words about their performances.[20]

July 18, 2016Edit

Derulo was unavailable this week, but all-star Stephen "tWitch" Boss took his place at the judging table; Ziegler continued to attend and comment at the contestants' rehearsals. The show opened with a group Bollywood-style number danced by all of the contestants and all-stars. In the middle of the show, the all-stars performed a piece inspired by Romeo and Juliet. Contestants were paired with each other to dance two routines; each dancer performed at least one routine outside of his or her primary style. The kids also performed duets with their all-stars. Daniela and her partner Sheaden were ranked in the bottom two, based on the previous week's voting, and Daniela was eliminated.[21]

July 25, 2016 (final 9)Edit

The show began again with a dance that included all the contestants and all-stars. During the course of the broadcast, there was also a group number for the kids and later one for the all-stars. The remaining nine contestants performed full-length routines with their all-stars in their own primary styles (or similar styles), and each did a short solo in his or her primary style. The kids each gave a campaign speech as if they were running for US President. Tate McRae, who is Canadian, qupped in her speech: "The only wall that should be shared between Canada and the United States should be Travis Wall."[22] Sheaden was eliminated, based on the previous week's voting.[23] The show has been promoting the sixth annual National Dance Day, "an annual celebration that encourages Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health and combat obesity", which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 30, 2016.[24]

Two groups of all-stars danced separately: first a contemporary routine and then a Broadway number. In the second half of the show, the contestants each choreographed a duet with his or her all-star in their own genre, choosing the concept, music, costumes and make-up.

September 5, 2016 (final 4): No eliminationEdit

The final four competed on Labor Day. Audience voting after this show was combined with the votes from the August 29 show to determine the results of the season, so there was no elimination this week.[31] The show again opened with a group number for the remaining contestants and the all-stars. The four contestants danced another routine, and later so did the all-stars. Each contestant performed a duet with an all-star who was not his or her mentor, in a new genre, and each also danced a solo in his or her own genre. Finally, the contestants each reprised their favorite routine of the season with their usual all-stars.[32]
