"So You Think You Can Dancers Among Us?"

I've had the great fortune to photograph several So You Think You Can Dance finalists for Dancers Among Us. Now that I'm headed to its hometown of Los Angeles in two weeks, I'm hungry for more!

In January 2010 I paired SYTYCD finalist Ellenore Scott with Alvin Ailey principle dancer Michael McBride. We spent a freezing day traversing NYC, having all kinds of adventures. I documented our hi-jinx in my most popular blog to date, "New Dancers Among Us: Getting Kicked Out of the Plaza Hotel...".

The next month I met up with the very popular SYTYCD star AdéChiké Torbert on Wall Street. Once again, it was freezing. And once again, I had an absolute blast! This adventure was documented in another well-read blog (am I noticing a pattern?), "Government Bailout of Wall Street, Dancers Among Us Style".

Even better, Caleb Custer and Design Brooklyn put together a terrific video of the Wall Street shoot that reveals Ade's truly magnetic force.

One year later I documented my final amazing SYTYCD experience in the blog, "Mega-Star Alex Wong Trashes Dancers Among Us".

So here's my challenge to all SYTYCD dancers in Los Angeles: I'll be in town from March 26-29. I've photographed three of your rivals. You had a chance to take them on for television, but here's an even greater prize- take them on for Dancers Among Us! Contact me on my super-secret personal email:

Ellenore, Ade and Alex: I'd love to have you to take another shot as well. Let's discover the greatest So You Think You Can Dancer Among Us. I hope those competitive juices are still flowing!
