About the Show SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE soars into its 11th season this May with a two-hour premiere event showcasing America's most talented dancers during the audition rounds, beginning Wednesday, May 28 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

The new season of the Emmy Award-nominated hit dance competition series once again will include awe-inspiring performances, as well as nail-biting eliminations, as the contestants compete to be named America's Favorite Dancer. In Season 11, producers travel across the country in search of dancers who represent the best America has to offer. Callbacks are held in Los Angeles, where the dancers work with top choreographers to learn routines that they will perform for judges Lythgoe and Murphy, and guest judges Adam Shankman, Tara Lipinski, Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Irina Dvorovenko. Once the judges pick the Top 20 dancers, they turn it over to America. Each week, the dancers will be paired up to perform inspired pieces choreographed by some of the biggest names in the business. The following week, one male and one female dancer will be eliminated from the competition.

The Greatest Dancer Series 01 About the show The Greatest Dancer is an exciting new dance competition for Saturday nights on BBC One, featuring our presenters Alesha Dixon & Jordan Banjo, and Dance Captains Cheryl, Matthew Morrison & Oti Mabuse. The show celebrates dance, with performances from every style you can imagine, from soloists to massive dance troupes, and professionally-trained dancers to amateurs. The competition is open to children from 7 years and above, with no upper age limit. The Mirror The Greatest Dancer is unlike any other show, and the audience is in complete control – fate of the dancers in their hands. The audition takes place in a Dance Studio like no other – dancers will perform in front of a mirror which has an audience on the other side, watching and voting if they like the performance or not. If 75% of the audience vote to say they like what they see, the mirror will open and the dancer will go through to the next stages of the competition and be mentored by one of the Dance Captains! But fail to hit 75% and they’ll be dancing alone and not progress any further. The Call Backs The Call Backs stage features dancers who had the mirrors open for them. Here, the Dance Captains deliberate on who to take through to the Live Challenge Shows. However, each Dance Captain can only take three acts through to mentor in the Live Shows. Live Challenge Shows For our Final 9 in the Live Challenge Shows, they must take on a different challenge each week to incorporate into their routine, to prove that they could be the Greatest Dancer. But only one can be crowned The Greatest Dancer and win £50,000 and perform on the Strictly Come Dancing stage! Trailer:
