Dance Canadian boy, dance.

I feel like whenever I go to a writing convention in the States, I suddenly become a Canadian ambassador. I listen to myself sometimes and am amazed (not necessarily in a good way) of what comes out of my mouth.

Such as…

“In Canada we don’t have The Cheesecake Factory or IHOP. Weird!”

“I don’t know why you make fun of the way I say ‘about.’ It sounds exactly like how you say it. No, it does. Stop making fun of me!!!”

“Canada has different colored money. How can you tell the difference when it’s all green? It’s crazy!!”

“In Canada we spell theatre the way it’s supposed to be spelled.”

“In Canada our official animal is the beaver. Why do you laugh?”

“Pamela Anderson is Canadian, too. Did you know that? No? And so is Jim Carrey. And Ryan Reynolds. SHALL I GO ON??”

“Why do you not know what the CN Tower is? It’s a world wonder for Pete’s sake. A WORLD WONDER!!”

And so on.

Now, I’m happy to say that we have something that you all don’t have. Unless it’s available on cable for you. Or something. I love So You Think You Can Dance. And when I learned that there would be a SYTYCD Canada I was a bit worried. I find Canadian Idol a pale comparison to American Idol (mostly because the host and judges don’t work for me — to put it nicely), but SYTYCD?

It’s so good! It must use the same sets as the US version because, other than a plethora of French accents (debunked myth about Canada: we don’t all speak French here), it’s exactly the same. And the host has obviously studied Cat Deeley very closely. For better or worse, alas.

Here’s my favorite dancer so far. Mostly because he’s hot. And I really don’t mind the French accent at all.

    Yay for being an ambassador!! Go, Canada. And I really don’t hear us saying ‘aboot’ at all. What is up with the hearing of people from other countries, eh?

    And I’m officially obsessed with SYTYCD. I loved Season 4 and am a total Mark Kanemura fan however I am being nicely entertained by Nico and Arrasay and Lisa and Vincent on the Canadian version. Danny and Allie are super cute as well. Hoping to score some tickets to the CTV taping and if I don’t get tickets for me and my daughters for the US tour coming to the ACC on the 26th, I will be dead meat.
    Are you going to the concert?

    I saw the season 3 dancers on tour when they came to Toronto last year and found that it was a bit like watching the ‘best of” clips on the show. It was okay, but there was nothing new there and I probably wouldn’t go again. That said, it was enjoyable. I’ll just stick to watching it on TV. I might be seeing a live show too if I’m able to get tickets. We’ll see! It makes me wanna dance!

    I LOVE SYTYCD Canada!! I agree with Nico! Very hot!! Allie is my favourite though. Mainly because she’s a ballerina.

    I hate Leah Miller though. She was alright during the auditions, but she’s now gotten shouty and screechy and annoying. Like she was on MOD, which first made me hate her.

    But I still love SYTYCD Canada!
