Welcome to another week of book pitches based on last night’s performances on So You Think You Can Dance!
Last night was kind of a mixed bag, with several of the routines (including that of my favorite couple *sob*) falling flat. But there were some gems in the mix, too, and all my favorites lived to dance again next week.
This week, I actually have two dances for you, because the first one isn’t actually a pitch. Yeah, I know, that kind of defeats the purpose, but this dance made me think of a book that already exists. Granted, the costumes don’t really fit it, but the emotion in the dance certainly does. And it was super-pretty, so I wanted to show it to you.
Song: I Will Always Love You (Whitney Houston)
Choreographer: Stacey Tookey
Dancers: Witney and Chehon
Okay, now I’ll do a for-real book pitch.
Song: Wild Horses (Charlotte Martin)
Choreographer: Mandy Moore
Dancers: Cole and Lindsay
Book Pitch: Set in the 1960s, after her boyfriend is drafted into the army and is killed in action, a teenage girl struggles to overcome her feelings of depression and loss.
Suggested Author: Gayle Forman
What did you think? Were any of last night’s dances particularly inspiring to you?
