If you’re like me and still mourning the end of “So You Think You Can Dance’s” third season, you’re in luck, because Bravo is swooping in to fulfill our reality dance competition cravings.
Bravo’s latest addition to its primetime lineup is called “Step It Up” (sound like a familiar movie I’m sure you’ve seen?) and will focus on dancers’ versatility and ability to perform a different style of dance – including Broadway, ballet, ballroom and burlesque – each week. Instead of “dancing for their lives,” dancers on this show will essentially be auditioning for various parts in the industry on each episode. So one week a dancer could be hoping to land a spot on a commercial and the next week it could be a part in a music video. The dancer who successfully makes it to the final “call back” wins a cash prize.
So if you know Bravo – the mastermind creators behind “Top Chef” and “Project Runway” – it’s safe to say that this show will be worth watching! No airdate has been set for the show yet, but check back here often and we’ll keep you posted.
