Dance Dance Revelation: On “So You Think You Can Dance” - Los Angeles Review of Books
"So far, after nine seasons, America’s 'favorite' dancers have mostly been young, white women drawn from the well-lit competitive dance studios of the suburbs ... These dancers in particular do not find the liminal space between high art and entertainment troubling. For them, art is expression, selfhood is the content, and they are there to express themselves all over that damn stage. So You Think You Can Dance could perhaps be renamed So You Think You Have Feelings. It is Instagram in motion, a technically virtuosic rendering of pose as inner life. Contestants on the show repeatedly emphasize that they are there to 'show America' who they are, that they are on a 'journey,' with hopes to experience personal 'growth.' Theodor Adorno would have heard these banal platitudes of late-capitalist reality television and called them 'pseudo-individualization.'"
