Jenna Dewan Tatum Will Perform on the "SYTYCD" Finale, EEE!

I know you're excited about Monday night's monster "So You Think You Can Dance" finale.

Frankly, I'm pretty sure you've already planned your viewing party, which will begin at approximately 10 am tomorrow, when you commence binge-viewing all the previous weeks' episodes, and conclude in Tuesday's wee hours, after you and your dance friends have finished freaking out over the finale itself. (May the force be with you, intrepid "SYT" superfans. Remember to hydrate!)

But I have three words that are going to get you even more hyped for Monday's festivities: JENNA DEWAN TATUM.

Remember a few weeks ago, when we heard that the lovely Dewan Tatum had done a duet with Travis Wall at the Dizzy Feet Foundation Celebration of Dance Gala? And then proceeded to lose our minds after seeing a clip of the performance, which looked really, really good?

No? Let me refresh your memory:

Well, we just got word that JDT and TWall will be reprising their partnership during the "SYT" finale episode. And I kind of hope they'll be dancing the same duet. Because the little taste we got in the video? It was not enough. NOT ENOUGH, I SAY. I mean:

Yes. More of that. I want to see more of that.

I also maybe want to see Channing Tatum supporting his fabulous wifey from the audience. Or...you know...joining her onstage? I CAN DREAM, DARNIT.

Tune to Fox at 8 pm Monday for all the goodness!

How Project 21 Is Shaping the Next Generation of Competition-Dance Standouts

"I wish I had a better story about the name," says Molly Long, founder of the Orange County, CA–based dance studio Project 21. In truth, it's a play on the fact that she was born on the twenty-first of August, and 21 is her favorite number. "I was away on a teaching tour, the audition announcement was going live on Instagram the next day, and I desperately needed a name. Project 21 was just the least cheesy of the options I thought of!"

The fact that fans might expect the name to have some profound meaning speaks to the near-mythic status Project 21 has achieved on the competition and convention scene since its founding in 2014. Long's dancers are all wholly individual, yet jell seamlessly as a group, and are consistently snagging top prizes everywhere on the circuit. Each season brings a slew of new accolades, high-caliber faculty, and legions of devoted followers.

The industry has taken notice of the studio's unique ethos. "Molly gets through to her dancers in a special way, and they have this incomparable level of commitment to their craft as a result," says dancer and choreographer Billy Bell, who's worked closely with Long and her dancers. "That's what sets them apart—it's like a little dose of magic."
