So You Think You Can Dance is back in its 3rd season on SABC1!

Hosted by the beautiful but too much of herself  Sinazo Yolwa, we await how she would handle the pressure, although most of the job would be on three top judges selected.

The three (musketeers) are Harold Van Buuren, Themba Nofomele (Muvhango) and Lorna Maseko (Top Billing).

“Words cannot express how excited I am to be part of the third season of So You Think You Can Dance. Travelling across the country with the talented judges to meet and interact with dancers has been a wonderful experience. I am embracing the world of dance wholeheartedly, and our viewers have some amazing entertainment in store for them,” says Sinazo.

35 contestants are selected by the judging panel, to attend call back auditions in Johannesburg where they are given the opportunity to work with choreographers, learn different dance styles and perform these dances to stay in the competition.

16 contestants are then chosen during this phase to take part in the live performance shows of the competition, where they will compete as pairs but also as individuals for the title of South Africa’s most talented dancer.

The next phase of the show consists of performance and results shows. The top 16 contestants are randomly paired up and select a dance style which they will perform in front of a live audience and the judging panel.

Choreographers from different dance disciplines are at their disposal for the duration of the training week. After the performance show viewers have an opportunity to vote for their favourite dancer and the results are announced during the result show.  

“Viewers can expect to be dazzled by the level of talent we have in mzansi, the new pool of judges have indeed raised the bar. The introduction of Sinazo Yolwa will bring a new dynamic to the show and we are excited to see this new season attract many viewers; we expect record braking numbers in terms of votes this year,” says Dichaba Phalatse, Marketing Manager at SABC 1.
