I think we can all agree that the best kinds of proposals are proposals involving elaborate flash mobs, right? Well, New Yorkers, here's your chance to be part of one such magical event: Misnomer Dance Theater is helping to plan a flash mob proposal for a very lucky girl, and they want you to participate. (Side note: Doesn't the fact that there's now a legitimate demand for "flash mob coordinators" make you think there's hope for humanity?)
This is all going down today at 6 pm, in Central Park's Naumberg Bandshell. All you have to do is take a look at this video of the (very simple) choreography, then show up at the park at 5:30 for a quick rehearsal. Click here for more info and directions to the site.
Can't make it? The company will post a video later on—keep your eyes peeled!

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.
