PBS has released the 2017–2018 schedule for their Great Performances series of special, one-off TV events, and we think you'll want to sit up and take note—Hamilton and Cabaret and Holiday Inn, oh my! To make your appointment-viewing choices a little easier, we rounded up all of the danciest picks from the coming season. PBS = Perfect Broadway Spectacular. (Okay, we wish!)

Tonight on "So You Think You Can Dance," we'll find out this season's Top 6 dancers. How did that happen so fast?! It's hard to believe that in a month, we'll know the name of America's Favorite Dancer—and our "SYT" withdrawal will begin.

Lucky for us, there's the "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 11 Tour to look forward to. Last week, FOX announced that this year's Top 10 will be traveling to over 70 cities across the U.S. and Canada—so chances are they'll be coming to a city near you! As per usual, the tour promises to bring us some of the most memorable routines from the season, plus some on-tour-exclusives!

The tour kicks off on Wednesday, October 1, in New Orleans, LA, and runs until February of next year. Tickets go on sale this Friday (!!!), August 15. Click here to view the full schedule (and to purchase your tickets come Friday).

And for a reminder of the talent that will be hitting the road this fall, here's a clip of the Top 10 group performance—"Bang Bang" by Jamal Sims—from last week's show:

Broadway Week is definitely one of the most magical times of the year. Why? Because through February 6, many Broadway tickets are now 2 for the price of 1. The best musicals ever for half the price? AMAZING. Now's your chance to catch up on the latest and greatest on the Great White Way. Click here for the full list of participating shows. And here are our must-see options with a little video inspiration:

After Midnight. Because Duke Ellington, tap dancing and so many split leaps.

Chicago the Musical. Because you loved the movie, and live is better. (And it's now starring Bebe Neuwirth as Matron Mama Morton!)

Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. Because Carly Rae Jepsen takes on the title role Feb. 4. We're not sure if that's good or bad, but it's definitely worth seeing.

Matilda the Musical. Because look at all the cuties!

Newsies. Because it's still the danciest show on Broadway.

Pippin. Because Fosse.
