Atlanta has had plenty of representation on shows such as “Dancing With the Stars,” “The Amazing Race,” “Project Runway,” “Top Chef,” “Survivor,” “The Apprentice” and “American Idol.”
But there’s one show where locals can’t seem to get a break: “So You Think You Can Dance.” Over seven seasons and about 130 finalists, not a single one has hailed from metro Atlanta.
Twice before, the show has even hosted auditions in Atlanta (once at the Fox Theatre in 2007, another time at Woodruff Arts Center in 2009.) That didn’t even help.
But those Fox producers sure are optimistic about our fine city because they are coming back a third time for season eight this summer. They are scheduled to show up at the Fabulous Fox Theatre Feb. 19. The press release said the original audition site for this region was Charlotte but that was changed for unknown reasons.
