KELOWNA – So You Think You Can Dance, the 13-time Primetime Emmy award winning show that sparked America and Canada’s fascination with dance, is set to captivate audiences in the Okanagan when it arrives at Prospera Place Jan. 10 at 7:30 p.m.

Celebrating its momentous 12th season and its exciting new Stage vs. Street format, So You Think You Can Dance’s top 10 finalists will make their way across North America performing in 70 cities as part of the So You Think You Can Dance season 12 tour.

The tour will feature this season’s most popular routines from Team Stage and Team Street, as well as original pieces created specifically for the nationwide tour.

The tour lineup includes Team Stage’s Gaby Diaz, Edson Juarez, Jim Nowakowski, Hailee Payne and Derek Piquette; and Team Street’s Megan “Megz” Alfonso, Eddie “Neptune” Eskridge, Virgil Gadson, Jessica “JJ” Rabone and Jana “Jaja” Vankova.

“I am thrilled with this season’s new Stage vs. Street format and the brilliant, fresh talent we have discovered,” said Nigel Lythgoe, judge, executive producer and co-creator of the hit Fox TV series. “These dancers have inspired the choreographers to create remarkable dance numbers each week, truly showcasing individual talent. I am excited for your favourite dancers to bring their inspiration and routines to even more cities on this year’s nationwide tour.”
