"SYTYCD" Season 16 hopefuls at The Academy (Adam Rose/Fox)

6 Dancers We Want to See on "SYTYCD" Next Season

Just like that, another season of "So You Think You Can Dance" has come to an end (congrats, Bailey Muñoz!). But while we're sad Season 16 is over, we're already dream casting the next season. Here are six dancers we hope to see slaying it on our TV screens next year.


Sarah "Smac" McCreanor

Smac was one of our favorite dancers to audition on Season 16. Her jazz style is so refreshing and fun to watch, and though she didn't make it past the Academy this season, we hope to see her back next year!

Autumn Miller

Obviously, we're continually blown away by Autumn Miller's skills. Imagine how much America would love her if she competed on "SYTYCD"!

Jay Jackson

We were so glad to see Jay Jackson back at auditions this season—and he'd improved SO much since the previous year. Third time's the charm, Jay!

Ben Cook

OK, listen: We know Ben Cook is a little busy with West Side Story (the Broadway and movie versions!) right now, but we NEED some strong Broadway representation on the "SYT" stage—and who better to check that box than the dancing king himself?

Rachael Blanchard

Remember Rachael Blanchard from Season 15 auditions? Since then, her dancing has only gotten SO. MUCH. BETTER. We'd die to see her back again next season.

But the 19-year-old phenom isn't just a social media sensation. Having already conquered the competition scene and the world of dance reality TV, Ware recently joined Complexions Contemporary Ballet as a trainee. These days, she splits her time between NYC and Philadelphia, PA, where she continues to beef up her classical training at The Rock School for Dance Education.

She's not a traditional bunhead, and she's not a run-of-the-mill social influencer, either. Instead, Ware is creating her own hybrid career path—and it's taking her to impressive places.
