Auditions were held for the third season of my favorite TV dance show, So You Think You Can Dance, today right here in Washington DC, at the Atlas Center for the Performing Arts. I think it’s great that the Atlas, which has been at the heart of one of DC’s most interesting urban renewals (real renewal as opposed to gentrification), is going to get such huge exposure when the show airs.

I’d hoped to make it over there during my lunch hour to check out the crowd and ask people how it had gone, but it just didn’t happen.

A great video, photos and a little recap of the day’s people and events is up at the Baltimore Sun’s Reality Check blog. Apparently, first round is continuing tomorrow with callbacks on Saturday and Sunday.

Were you there? Did you get in? Did you audition? How did it go? Who did you see? What was the process like? We’re dying to know!!
