Sure, you may be the "Footloose" king in the privacy of your house — but do you have what it takes to bring it on stage?
You can find out Saturday, when the producers of the popular reality show "So You Think You Can Dance"hold a casting call at Seattle's Moore Theatre.
Produced by 19 Entertainment Limited (the group behind "American Idol") and dick clark productions, the contest has been airing on Fox since 2005. It pits against each other dancers of all styles and backgrounds — from street dancers to ballroom champions. Each week, contestants are judged on different techniques, from hip-hop to the quickstep.
The casting call starts at 8 a.m. Saturday at the Moore Theatre in downtown Seattle. Dancers must be ready with a routine set to a commercial song on a CD (no illegal downloads or noncommercial remixes, and no sexually explicit or overly violent lyrics either). Plus, you'll also need to be prepared to dance to another song provided at the audition.
Other fine print: Contestants must also be no younger than 19 and no older than 30, and a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident. Other advice: The audition lines will be long, so bring food and water.
Seattle is the last step in the audition process, which has already been to New York; Miami; Los Angeles; Denver; and Memphis, Tenn. From here, the producers head into callbacks, slated for April in Las Vegas.
