American competition television series in which dancers vie for exposure and recognition and with hopes of securing, in addition to a monetary prize, professional opportunities in the world of dance and entertainment.
So You Think You Can Dance Canada was a dance competition and reality show that aired on CTV.
Based on the original American TV show So You Think You Can Dance, the Canadian series showcased the best in Canadian dancing talent. Each season, the show held auditions in major cities across the country, looking for the top dancers in Canada. Competitors of all genres and styles tried to impress the judges in the hopes of making the Top 20, which gave them the opportunity to perform on national television.
During each week's performance show, couples competed for the votes of the viewing public; the three couples receiving the fewest number of votes are forced to "dance for their lives" during the results show in an attempt to prove to the judges that they deserve to stay. Following this, the judges eliminated one man and one woman from the competition — for the first five weeks, the judges themselves chose who stays and who goes, but starting in Top 10 week, the voters alone decided which dancers continued on in the competition. Ultimately, one dancer prevailed. During the season finale, this person is crowned "Canada's Favourite Dancer", and receives a prize of CDN $100,000 and a new car. In Seasons 2 and 3, the runner-up also received a new car.
