The past four seasons, I watched "So You Think You Can Dance." Not every show, but a lot of them.
I took dance lessons for several years. But unlike most women who take dance as young girls, I was 38 when I took my first dance class. It was a tap camp a month before rehearsals started for "42nd Street" at the Springer Opera House. I was hooked after that. I started with tap, then took jazz and then ballet.
Even though it's been years since I've been in a dance class, I love to watch dance. Whether it's great choreography in a musical live or in a movie, a ballet company at the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts or on television shows like "Dancing With the Stars" or "SYTYCD."
All the network shows my mother usually watch are reruns, so she turned to Fox.
I remembered now how much I enjoy the show. And how annoying that Mary Murphy is.
It was the show's 100th episode and we were supposed to be excited that Katie Holmes was going to sing and dance to "Get Happy," a signature Judy Garland number.
That meant Holmes was in a tuxedo jacket and dance shorts. She's not a bad singer. But when she started "dancing," I started laughing and told my mother that even I could do that!
I was very underwhelmed. I think the only reason she's even considered to do anything is because she's married to Tom Cruise. I haven't seen any evidence of talent anywhere. Though my friend Cameron said she was good in "Dawson's Creek."
I never watched that show, so I wouldn't know. If I never see Holmes sing or "dance" again, it will be OK.
