So you think you can Dance US is back

I love this show way too much… when it first came out I would fantasize (as I’m sure most people did) what my chances would have been if we had this show in my day. Back then I thought I’d at least make it to choreography but now… wow. The calibre of dancers is amazing. I love every single dancer in the top 20, and the first competition episode blew me away. I’m so glad I’m not American (or one of the judges) – there’s no way I’d want to have a hand in deciding who gets cut. So, first week – here are my favourite dances (can’t pick dancers yet – love them all):

Ashley and Kupono – Dance was the Crash Test Dummies by Wade and Amanda. LOVED this one – it took dance beyond just technique and created an experience. To see that level of performance in the first week – Kupono has a natural ability to fully embody what he’s communicating beyond just technique and facial expressions. Kind of like Mia Michaels where it’s hard to describe what makes them stand above others… you just know that they do.

Melissa and Ade – Contemporary piece by Mandy Moore. They are both so strong and natural. Ballet really is the best base.

Caitlin and Jason – Bollywood by Nakul Dev Mahjan. I can’t even comprehend how difficult that hand and foot choreography would be but they knocked it out of the park. Coupled with Caitlins acrobatic ability, this one had the moments you replay in your head.

So excited to watch week two I hear Stacey Tookey the awesome choreographer from So you think you can dance Canada is going to choreograph a number : D

Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
Woke up at 1am on my Bali Birthday to do the Batur Volcano hike. What a great day. Very steep incline that varied from road, to lava rock, to volcanic clay. We hiked up in the dark so we had no idea how steep some of the drops were until we hiked back down in the daylight! Mt. Batur is an active volcano about 1,770 metres above sea level. Our hike up took about 2 hours. Base camp is about midway up the mountain, so our gain was 900 metres, 13 km. View at the top is of Mt Agung, another active volcano. #mtbatur #volcano #hike #bali #mtagungbali #birthdayfun #thisis50
I’m back in Bali. After a little beach exploration in Kuta, we’re now settled in Ubud for a bit. Hit one of my favorites @clearcafeubud and now ready for morning yoga @theyogabarn followed by a sound healing session at @pyramidsofchi today. Best day ever. #bali #beachwalk #ubud #kuta #soundhealing Yes, those are recycled water bottles made into a Christmas tree.
