Created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe, summer’s hottest series showcases talented dancers – skilled in everything from Ballet, Breaking, Krumping and Salsa to Swing, Tap and Contemporary Jazz – competing for the title of America’s Favorite Dancer.

“In addition to discovering fantastic new talent, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE has introduced viewers to the young, edgy, incredibly creative side of dance we hadn’t seen before on television,” said Nigel Lythgoe, series co-creator, executive producer and judge. “From the Emmy-winning choreography to the incredible contestants, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE is a cultural phenomenon, and we’re excited that it will be back for another season.”

Last season’s winner, Lauren Froderman, danced off with a $250,000 cash prize, the title of America’s Favorite Dancer and a cover feature in Dance Spirit Magazine. Additionally, she is the first-ever dancer featured as a Gatorade athlete.

Froderman will join Season Seven’s Top 7 and All-Stars Ade, Allison, Courtney, Dominic and Kathryn and Season Six winner Russell on the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Live Tour 2010, which kicks off Sunday, Sept. 19, in New Orleans, LA. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE was created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe and comes from 19 Entertainment Ltd. and dick clark productions. The series is executive-produced by Simon Fuller, Nigel Lythgoe and Barry Adelman. Become a fan of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE on Facebook at and follow the series on Twitter at
