Everyone We're Obsessed with Is in This New Brian Friedman Video

I had the weirdest dream last night, you guys.

I dreamed that Brian Friedman choreographed a fantabulous routine to Ariana Grande's "Into You."

OK, that part's not so weird. Brian Friedman being fantabulous is pretty much par for the course, actually.

Here's the crazy part: I dreamed the choreography video featured LITERALLY EVERY DANCER I'M OBSESSED WITH RIGHT NOW.

Best dream ever. (Screenshot via YouTube)

May/June 2016 cover girl Larsen Thompson was there. So was 2016 Cover Model Search finalist Kerrynton Jones. And January 2013 cover girl Ryan Ramirez. And March 2014 "You Should Know"-er Sean Lew. And—yes—2015 May/June cover star Maddie Ziegler made an appearance, too.

Then I woke up and discovered IT WAS ALL REAL.

Happy Friday to me! Happy Friday to everybody!

It's usually right around the third or fourth week of "So You Think You Can Dance" audition rounds that we start itching for the live shows. Sure, the auditions are fun, inspiring, and entertaining, but at a certain point, we reach audition saturation. (And the live shows are just so good and feature so much more Cat Deeley.)

All that said, Nigel and co. kept things spicy this week, so our attention remained firmly glued to the screen. (It's been 16 seasons—who are we to doubt Nigel Lythgoe, sir?) Here's how it all went down.

When it comes to injury-prone body parts, knees reign supreme for dancers. But a little strengthening can go a long way in preventing painful outcomes. We turned to Dirk Hartog, a physical therapist with Westside Dance Physical Therapy in NYC, for three exercises that'll support and stabilize your knees.
