Before “Dancing with the Stars”, “America’s Best Dance Crew” and “So You Think You Can Dance” there was Astaire-Rogers. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are among the most successful and well-known dancers in American history. Together, this dancing and acting duo made ten films. To this day, "Fred and Ginger" remains an almost automatic reference for any successful dance partnership. Many classical dancers and choreographers acknowledge their importance and influence on dance today. Now, you can see what they were all about – Comcast has ten films featuring Astaire and Rogers available now including, Shall We Dance, Swing Time and Top Hat. So check out the pair that has inspired the dance craze of today On Demand in the “Movies & Events” folder under “Movie Collections.”

To all those who are fans of SYTYCD and all those behind the seens, to the judges and of course to the dancers.
In Glendale, Az. I was priviliged to meet the dancers of SYTYCD season 4 when they were all signing autographs. I must tell you that each and everyone of them is a class act. They work hard pushing their bodies to the limit. Their skill is what we admire them for but they should be admired for their down to earth personalities and their class. They actually take the time to sign for every fan and talk to them taking pictures with them. Gev and Twitch stood out among the guys as Jessica and Katee stood out among the girls. Katee actually went into the fan area beyond her security to talk with and sign for an elderly handicapped woman in a wheel chair....that was awesome of her. Jessica spoke of her injury and of the personal time the dancers had on the bus. (and yes it would be worth it to be a fly on the wall on that bus) Will takes to heart the fanfare and confesses his love (so whom ever you are you need not worry about his heart)Will does love all the girls attention and picture taking...Chelsea Hightower is a big flirt ad a little hottie I wouldnt mind getting...

Am I the only one who sees that this year's show is fixed? Throughout the early weeks I really didn't want to believe it, but tonight, when both Gev and Mark lost out to Twitch, a one-act clown show with phony spectacles, to boot -- well, all was clear.

Gev and Mark, along with Joshua are the Show's most focused and versatile dancers; who delivered every step that was demanded of them like pros, and without excuses from the judges for being out of their element. This is supposed to be a "dance competition", not a clown show, or a body-building competition -- they're simply required to bring their talent and ability to perform each role with their "heart and soul" and natural ability and/or charisma.

Last year the judges mocked the male dancers who showed a little too much chest with open shirts -- this year, as Joshua, graciously pointed out, in not so many words: he was not going to compete with Twitch and Will, in their ab-games. So when did the rules change?

Compared to last week's show, Wednesday's episode was only satisfactory for me. Who knows? Maybe it was because they were trying to cram all 14 dances into one show, resulting in rushed introductions, less practices per dance between couples and other effects that came into play. Or, maybe the only problem is me. Maybe I'm just too picky with shows like this, and I want them to be "perfect" and "just right". Whatever the cause, most of the dances in episode 12 did not capture my attention, and without looking at my notes, I probably would not even be able to remember who danced what and when. How sad.

I can NOT possibly be the only one that finds this "person" almost too irritating to watch, and this is a really good program.
WHAT IS HER PROBLEM?????????
She looks like Fire Marshall Bill, (done by Jim Kerry on In Living Color), she sits there with her lips pulled back in a snarl like a hyena. I'd like to see one of her teeth right in front fall out right on TV.
That's not the worst, her voice is by far THE most irritating sound on earth and when she starts her screaming, and false cetto rampage, it reminds me of the loudest, most irritating, knife in the brain, migraine starting, baby, on an airplane or grocery store.
All contestants performing have to hear her
"HA HA HA HA HA HA HA" Please gag me with a very large something.

GET HER OFF THE SHOW! She ruins it.

Is it just me, or is Dominic a little fixated on Cat? He takes any opportunity to grab her in a big hug and does NOT let go! She seems to be squirming and trying to get away. She's probably glad he got voted off last night..
