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?
