Starting the thread a little early so we can discuss the format changes: - Mary Murphy is stepping down as judge, in order to choreograph routines for the dancers. She will, however, rotate in as the third guest judge a few times. - Mia Michaels is back. - There will be a "Top 10" instead of a "Top 20," and instead of continuing partnerships, the dancers will change partners each week. Further, the partners will be randomly (will it be random?) chosen from an "All-star" group of 10 dancers from previous seasons. The chosen All-star's favoured dance style will be that couples' style for the week. Because of these changes, only one dancer will go hope each week. According to Nigel, these are the All-stars, and their styles: Allison Hoker (Jazz/Contemporary/Broadway/Cultural) Anya Garnis (Ballroom/Latin) Dominic Sandoval (Hip Hop/Breaking) Lauren Gottlieb (Hip Hop/Jazz/Contemporary) Neil Haskell (Jazz/Contemporary/Broadway/Cultural) Pasha Kovalev (Ballroom/Latin) Comfort Fedoke (Hip Hop/Krump) Mark Kanemura (Jazz/Broadway/Cultural) Twitch (Popping/Locking/Krump) Courtney Galiano (Contemporary/Jazz) Ade Obayomi (Contemporary/Classical) Kathryn McCormick (Jazz/Contemporary/Broadway/Cultural) Thoughts?
