Deep in the throes of "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 16, the euphoria of summertime and live shows is causing us to reflect on seasons past. While much has undergone change since the show's inception—movement trends, choreographers, dancers, judges and fashion—the positive impact it has on the trajectory of the winner's future remains as significant as ever. "This show has changed my life—it's changed me as a person," says Hannahlei Cabanilla, winner of Season 15.
We always love a chance to celebrate women—especially when they're dancing women. Female artists are powerful, strong, delicate, caring, thoughtful, complex, emotional and compelling. They captivate us with their storytelling and technique. We are so thankful for their willingness to share their gifts with the world!
Here's a list of women (that is in no way even close to comprehensive) who we feel should be celebrated on this holiday. Check them out, and, over on our Facebook page, tag a woman in dance who you feel should be celebrated today.
