Need something to watch obsessively this weekend? DS has got you covered. The entire Dance212 web series is now online and is fully updated. You probably caught Season 7: "Where Are They Now?" But what about where they were? A lot has changed for the dancers featured on the show, and now that you can watch from the beginning, it's even more gratifying to watch them progressing toward their goals.
Sure, Jamal is dancing with Ballet Hispanico now, but remember when he was a senior at Julliard, gushing about how excited he was to be in the studio rehearsing with Sidra Bell?
And what about Victoria? She might be killing it at Julliard now, but what about when she was a wide-eyed high-schooler who had just been accepted to her dream school?
The most inspiring part of Dance212 is watching all the dancers develop their artistry, while their love of dance continues to shine. As Victoria says, looking back it's hard to recognize yourself - but that's a good thing.

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.
