A Fox program has received a renewal from the network that will bring the show back for a 12th season. The show is “So You Think You Can Dance,” and Variety reports that the competition series will add some new procedures when it returns in the summer of 2014.
“Throughout the new season, advancing dancers will be placed into two teams — stage dancers, trained in contemporary, ballet, jazz or tap styles; and street dancers, competitors skilled in hip-hop, animation or breaking,” Variety reports. “During the audition phase, judges and each team’s All-Star mentor will eliminate dancers until 10 stage dancers and 10 street dancers remain.”
The report adds: “The top 20 will then be challenged to perform a variety of styles, per tradition, with one dancer from each team eliminated each week.”
Co-creator and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe said the program will “be much more exciting for viewers and even more demanding for the dancers.”
