See Taylor for Five Bucks

Heads up, guys: Paul Taylor Dance Company is going to be selling $5 tickets to its March 6 Lincoln Center performance, which honors the 25th birthdays of Taylor's Brandenburgs and Speaking in Tongues.

Great, right? But there's a (cute) catch.

Last year, the company tried something similar, selling $7.50 tickets to a performance celebrating Aureole's 75th anniversary. The problem? They sold out in 45 minutes.

So this time around, the company has decided to offer the discounted tickets at little pop-up locations around Manhattan on four different days, giving Taylor fans all over the city a better shot at scoring them. Here's a rundown of the dates/locations:

Tuesday, January 22, Noon - 2 p.m.

Chacott by Freed of London

20 East 20th Street

Between Park Avenue and Broadway

Friday, January 25, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.

Mexican Radio

Between Spring and Kenmare Streets

Sunday, January 27, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Paul Taylor Dance Company Studios

Monday, January 28, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.

Dancers Responding to AIDS’ Dance from the Heart

Happy ticket tracking!

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.
