A new year marks a new season of So You You Think You Can Dance. Of course, that won’t happen until the weather gets a bit warmer, but Fox has already begun scouting this year’s crop of dancing hopefuls as the network has announced the audition schedule for So You Think You Can Dance Season 11. Auditions for the new season kick off in Atlanta later this month.
Created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe, So You Think You Can Dance features young and talented dancers skilled in a variety of dance styles, from ballroom to hip hop and everything in between. Each season offers an incredibly impressive array of talent and emphasizes many dancers’ ability to learn different styles and master some truly creative choreography.
January 13 is the exact day for the start of the SYTYCD auditions. Here’s the schedule Fox released, along with some additional information to know if you’re looking to try out:
Atlanta, GA - Monday, Jan. 13 - Fox Theatre - 660 Peachtree St. NE - Atlanta, GA 30308
The SYTYCD auditions begin just days ahead of the American Idol premiere (January 15). That’s particularly fitting, considering SYTYCD usually picks up where Idol leaves off each spring, except the emphasis obviously shifts from singing talent in Idol to dancing in So You Think You Can Dance. Based on the schedule, it looks like this season’s search will span the bulk of the winter, ending up in Los Angeles in March.
