So You Think You Can Dance: The Return of Alex Wong

Good news for So You Think You Can Dance fans, because Alex Wong is back! A gifted ballet dancer who most recently performed with the Miami City Ballet as a soloist, he initially auditioned in Season 5 but had to leave due to his contractual obligations with MCB.  He is back on the show, and sadly not listed on the MCB website anymore. Hopefully, Alex will return to Miami but he wowed the judges in his audition with the solo above yesterday.

I hope Alex’s audition highlights the talent that spills out of the pores of ballet dancers everywhere and that male ballet dancers aren’t just feminine princes on stage anymore. Ballet dancers like him are incredibly athletic, beautiful, strong, (and sexy, in my opinion) and their talents extend easily to many other dance forms.

Ballet dancers historically have come oh-so-close to winning in past seasons SYTYCD. Danny Tidwell, being the most obvious example, was an amazing dancer, but as the season went on, adjectives such as “aloof”, “cold”, “proud”, “unemotional” were tossed around by the judges. I hope Alex can win them over this season. He definitely has my vote.

About Jen

I’m a Korean-American living in the bay area, I studied public health and social work in grad school, and I have an obsession for anything theater related, especially ballet and Broadway musicals. I just spent three years in NYC so I am still adjusting to normal winter weather and having a car, and most of the time, I am busy funding my passion for theater with a full-time job in healthcare public relations. On any given day, you can find me watching Project Runway, shopping, doing yoga, skipping to the theater, or looking for the perfect cocktail.
