Can you dance? The dancers on this tour can.

After every season of the hit Fox show So You Think You Can Dance, contestants set off on a nationwide tour. Thursday, they hit West Valley City for a show that will leave everyone wanting to dance.

So You Think You Can Dance, the summer series created by Nigel Lythgoe and Simon Fuller, has become a favorite among dancers and dance fans across the country. This isn’t your typical television show. Apart from awarding the title of “America’s Favorite Dancer,” the show recognizes talented dancers and gives them exposure to the professional dance world.

The tour provides fans the chance to relive the excitement of the past season in their own states. Whether it’s the freakishly entertaining clown dance choreographed by hip hop duo Nappytabs or former contestant Travis Wall’s “Fix You” contemporary piece—which is sure to give anyone goosebumps—the performance features many Season 7 favorites as well as pieces that have been choreographed specifically for the tour.

The dancer lineup includes AdeChike Torbert, Ashley Galvan, Billy Bell, Jose Ruiz, Kent Boyd, Robert Roldan and “America’s Favorite Dancer,” Lauren Froderman. Also joining is Season 6 winner Russell Ferguson.

And this year, the “All Star” dancers from previous seasons will join the tour, featuring Ade Obayomi, Allison Holker, Courtney Galiano, Dominic Sandolval and Kathryn McCormick.

So You Think You Can Dance 2010 Tour @ The Maverik Center, 3200 S. Decker Lake Drive, West Valley, 801-988-8888, Nov. 4, 7:30 p.m., $47.60-$66.65. MaverikCenter.com, Fox.com/Dance
