So You Think You Can Dance?!

I’ve always enjoyed watching hip-hop and breakdancing. I come from a somewhat musical family (a bit ironic eh? lol) and most of my cousins grew up dancing. I did want to get into dancing as a child but it was required that I take ballet also. There was no way I was going to get into a pink tutu so I decided to stick with gymnastics, basketball, volleyball, and soccer. I’ve always wanted to learn how to dance but I just don’t seem to have a natural rhythm which I do NOT blame on my deafness. I think even if I could hear I wouldn’t have a good rhythm.

I did go to some dances with some extended family members when I was younger and did have to learn gymnastic routines with music. Being from Kansas I learned some line dances and square dancing in elementary school PE (how Midwestern is that?!).

Anyways I had a couple of roommates in NY who grew up dancing (ballet) and they got me hooked on SYTYCD (So You Think You Can Dance?).

I’m surprised I haven’t seen a deaf person on this show yet even during the try outs. There are many deaf people who enjoy dancing and are good at it. There are even deaf dance teams. I’m starting to wonder if I just missed it because surely by now a deaf person would have tried out. Anyone know?

Anyone else enjoy watching SYTYCD?

  1. SYTYCD is like by far the most talent driven show that I absolutely LOVE watching. they pick the best music, have really amazing choreographers, and these people who make it on the show are amazing! i cannot wait to see how things turn out when the show gets started!

  2. Do you have any type of instant messenger? Much easier to talk in real time.I never even heard about AVR Sonovation nor did any of my audiologists. I had the Widex Senso from 1998 to 2008 and now this Phonak Naida. Do tell me more about your transposition. What frequencies are being transported down to what frequencies? What’s the cutoff?Interesting results you have on that piano test, you should retry it on a desktop with a proper speaker and see how results differ. Does your HA have the option to turn off transposition? If so, can you compare the differences? Howcome you are missing some of the mid frequencies still?Could you scan and post your other audiograms, including with your right ear and aided scores with both HAs? Ill be able to learn more and work with my audiologist to reprogram my HAs so I hear even better than I currently do. Should I be hearing better than 15db at 250Hz with only 70db HL? What about better than 25db at 500Hz with 90db HL? (my audiograms are in my blog)Itll be much easier to communicate in realtime with instant messenger. Feel free to read my other posts in my blog, ive learned alot and have shared some of this.
