— Casting begins for host and judging panel —

Canada, do you think you can dance? Prove it! CTV announced today that So You Think You Can Dance Canada, an all-new Canadian version of the hit international series, will embark on a nationwide search for the country’s favourite dancer this Spring. The five-city audition tour will visit Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax – with one additional audition city to be announced. Complete audition information, including dates, locations and eligibility requirements, will be revealed soon.

CTV and production partner Danse TV Productions are currently casting for the host and judging panel for So You Think You Can Dance Canada. The series premieres this fall on CTV.

So You Think You Can Dance Canada is based on the Emmy Award-winning smash hit series created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe that premiered in 2005. Canada joins the United States, Australia, Norway, Denmark, Greece, Poland, Turkey, Germany, Malaysia, New Zealand, South Africa and Israel as markets with an original So You Think You Can Dance production. The original So You Think You Can Dance is a Top 3 summer series in Canada on CTV with an average audience of 1.25 million viewers.*

“Whether they hone their craft at ballet school, in the clubs or on the streets, dancers share the same dream: to express their passion for dance on stage,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “So You Think You Can Dance Canada provides that stage for the broad spectrum of dance talent this country has to offer in a way never seen before.”

So You Think You Can Dance Canada will showcase dancers as they compete to impress an expert panel of judges during a cross-country audition process. Selected competitors will be invited to call-backs where they will work with some of Canada’s top choreographers. The panel will then choose the Top 20 dancers to move on in the competition. Then, it’s up to Canada to decide who stays and who goes as the public votes for their favourites following weekly performance episodes in which the competitors are assigned different partners and dance styles to perform, from hip-hop, krump and pop-and-lock to salsa, quickstep, ballroom, and jive.

So You Think You Can Dance Canada was created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe and is produced in association with CTV by Danse TV Productions. Sandra Faire and Trisa Dayot are Executive Producers. Ed Robinson is Executive Vice-President, Programming, CTV Inc. Susanne Boyce is President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc.
