Auditions for season 12 of the popular Fox dance competition series So You Think You Can Dance will get underway on January 24, 2015 in New York. The auditions will take place in four other cities – Dallas, Detroit, Memphis, and Los Angeles – as the judges search for America’s Favorite Dancer.

So You Think You Can Dance is executive produced by series creators Nigel Lythgoe and Simon Fuller as well as Allen Shapiro, Barry Adelman, James Breen, and Jeff Thacker. Through the dance series’ 11 seasons, the show has earned 44 Emmy Award nominations, winning 13 including Emmys in the choreography and costumes categories.

Details on Season 12:

“Throughout the auditions, the dancers who advance will be placed into two teams – the STAGE dancers, featuring those trained in styles such as contemporary, ballet, jazz or tap; and the STREET dancers, hopefuls skilled in hip-hop, animation or breaking. As the auditions continue, the judges, along with each team’s All-Star Mentor, will eliminate dancers until only the Top 20 – 10 Street Dancers and 10 Stage Dancers – remain. When the competition goes ‘live,’ the Top 20 will be challenged weekly to perform a variety of styles, working with world-renowned choreographers. One dancer from each genre will be eliminated each week leading up to the Season Finale. Who will win…a dancer from the stage or the street? Find out when So You Think You Can Dance returns in summer 2015.”
