Cat Deeley's Greatest Hits

Look at you, Cat. You're easy, breezy and beautiful—the ideal cover girl. Also, it looks like you've got some moves! Photo by Adam Rose/FOX.

Forget Kate Middleton and who cares about Sarah Jessica Parker? Cat Deeley, in my mind, you are the ultimate fashion icon.

When it's not "So You Think You Can Dance" season, I miss the dancing, sure. But most of all, I miss seeing Cat Deeley strut out onto the "SYTYCD" stage each night. I always wonder what she's going to wear: something rocker-chic, perhaps? Maybe a floral ensemble? Or a ballerina-inspired, tutu-esque getup?

Truthfully, it doesn't matter what she's got on. Cat's got charisma, and that gives each outfit an extra splash of sparkle.

So, Ms. Deeley, while people like Melanie, Lauren, Jeanine and Joshua may take home the "America's Favorite Dancer" titles (and a Dance Spirit cover feature!), know that you're our other favorite. You're our favorite television show host, our favorite fashionista and our favorite person-who-was-willing-to-wear-tWitch's-grill.

Without further embellishment and adoration, here are a few of my favorite Cat Deeley looks:

Love this bright-red hue. Photo by Adam Rose/FOX.

More in red. This dress is amazing. I want it. Photo by Adam Rose/FOX.

She could walk from the "SYTYCD" stage down the aisle at a wedding. Love the white. Photo by Adam Rose/FOX.

OK now I'm starting to get a little jealous... Photo by Frank Micelotta/FOX.

SPARKLES!!! I'm such a sucker for anything glittery. Photo by Mathieu Young/FOX.

If she could ride a motorcycle in that outfit, I bet she would. Man, Cat is cool. Photo by Kelsey McNeal/FOX.

High buns are hot. And the gold accents on the dress are to die for. Photo by Mathieu Young/FOX.

Again, with the red. Photo by Mathieu Young/FOX.

OMG it's a romper. It's a shiny, shimmery ROMPER. This outfit makes me so happy. And I can't get enough of that perfectly pin-straight, shiny hair. Photo by Kelsey McNeal/FOX.

I actually think this ensemble is perfect. Truly. Photo by Kelsey McNeal/FOX.

I would say this one is my all-time favorite, but it's a tough distinction to make. Photo by Michael Becker/FOX.

Of course I'm not going to gush about how hot Cat is without sharing how you can get her look yourself! Click here to read DS fashion guru Michael Anne Bailey's tips for how to snag Cat Deeley's style.

And Cat, we'll see you in May!

We're about two months into #SocialDisDancing, and let's be real—while we all wish we were spending every spare minute stretching, cross-training, or taking online classes, sometimes we just need to Netflix and chill.

We figure, if you're going to be watching TV anyways, why not make it dancy TV? After all, watching pros dance on-screen is basically dance class homework...or at least we'll say it is. Here are five of the danciest TV shows for you to watch—and where to find them.

Celebrate National Tap Dance Day with "HSM" Star Larry Saperstein

Happy National Tap Dance Day, friends! We're marking the occasion by catching up with one of our favorite talented young tappers: Larry Saperstein. The "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" star began taking tap classes at 12 years old, studying at the American Tap Dance Foundation, where he quickly discovered his love for the art. These days, he's putting his skills to good use as Big Red on "HSMTMTS." (Who could forget that iconic moment at the end of season one where he broke out into a tap routine that shook us all!)

We chatted with Larry about why he loves tap so much, and why the art form needs more and better representation in the dance world (and the world world).

2020 Dance Grads: We Want to Put You on Our Cover!

Hello, all you members of the great Dance Class of 2020. With the world on lockdown, this hasn't been the graduation season you expected. You likely weren't able to go to prom; your commencement ceremonies have probably been delayed or canceled; and you might not have been able to take your planned-for final bow onstage.

Since you're missing out on so much, we'd like to give you a virtual ovation, to recognize all you've accomplished. And what's the highest honor we can bestow? The cover of Dance Spirit!

Here's the plan:

  • If you're a high school or college senior dancer, use this form to submit your information and dance portrait.
  • Each day during the month of May, we'll create a digital Dance Spirit cover starring one of you, chosen at random—31 covers in total.
  • At the end of the month, we'll create a "commencement video" featuring even more of your submitted dance photos.
  • 100 of you, selected by lottery, will also receive free one-year subscriptions to the print magazine.

Merde, 2020 graduates, as you dance your way into the future!
