So You Think You Can Dance 12: Stage vs. Street with Andrew Rogers

Our Editor and Staff Writer, Andrew Rogers is back this summer with a weekly recap of the groundbreaking 12th season of So You Think You Can Dance. This season, the show levels the field by separating dancers by where they perfected their moves—on the stage, or on the streets. The hit summer reality sensation brings back Stephen “Twitch” Boss and Travis Wall as mentors and both of whom rank among the show’s most popular graduates. The hit dance competition inspires and amazes viewers as dancers skilled in styles ranging from hip-hop to ballroom compete each week.
