“We’re looking for people that shine.” New previews have been released from the upcoming season of So You Think You Can Dance, TVLine reports.
Season 13 of FOX’s dance competition series will focus on children aged between 8 and 13. Regular judges Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul, and Jason Derulo will return alongside young dancer Maddie Ziegler.
In a video from the series’ Chicago auditions, executive producer Jeff Thacker said they’re looking for stars this season:
I think you’ll find that these kids that are coming between 8 to 13, they’ve been training for 1o years since the show’s been on. So that’s the talent we’re looking for. … I just think that the caliber of these 8 to 13-year-olds are amazing.”
I think the technique is incredible. What we’re gonna watch from them now is that their performances are good, that they understand the music that they’re dancing to, that they draw upon the little experience that they’ve had.”
The new season of So You Think You Can Dance premieres on May 30th.
