Auditions will take place for So You Think You Can Dance‘s 14th season in New York on March 4-6 and Los Angeles on March 17-19.
Co-creator Nigel Lythgoe executive produces along with Allen Shapiro, Barry Adelman and Jeff Thacker.
“This season is about giving our loyal fan base what they’ve been asking for,” said Lythgoe. “We’ve decided to go back to basics by bringing the best of our past formats together for an exciting new summer featuring accomplished adult competitors partnered with fan-favorite All-Star dancers.

In order to be eligible to audition, dancers must register online at sytycdauditions.com by February 19, 2017 for New York and March 5 for Los Angeles.
Details for Season 14 Auditions: “This season, highly-skilled dancers between the ages of 18-30 will showcase their talents in various dance styles, including contemporary, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, animation, breaking and more. The Top 10 dancers will be paired up with All-Stars who will guide them throughout the competition as they vie for America’s votes and the title of America’s Favorite Dancer. Dancers must be no younger than 18 or older than 30 years of age on the first day they register online for auditions. Dancers must provide legal, valid proof of age when they register for auditions.
During the audition rounds, the most talented dancers will compete in front of the judges for a coveted spot at ‘The Academy’ callback rounds in Los Angeles. At the end of ‘The Academy’ callback rounds, 10 All-Stars will choose one dancer each to move on to the SYTYCD studio and become this season’s Top 10. There, the Top 10 will compete LIVE each week for America’s votes in a variety of styles, working and performing alongside the All-Stars with world-renowned choreographers. Contestants will be eliminated weekly until a winner is named on the season finale.”
