Today’s going to be a double-header!* I wasn’t able to get to it last week, since I was getting ready to travel down to New Orleans for my brother’s wedding, which went off wonderfully well in spite of many Isaac-related complications.
So for today, I have a pitch from last week and one from this week. ALSO, stay tuned for tomorrow, because I will have a very special SYTYCD-related surprise, a little bit different from what I’m doing today! ARE YOU EXCITED?
P.S. I am SO ANGRY about the guy who was eliminated last night. I do not approve. Not even a little. But I’ll try not to let my bitterness bleed into this post.
Anyway, first let’s look at a dance from last week, shall we?
Song: Possibly Maybe by Bjork
Dancers: Cole and Allison (Season 2)
Choreographer: Sonya Tayeh
Book Pitch: Every night in her dreams, a girl meets the same boy. At first, she assumes he’s just a figment of her imagination, but when he shows up at her school one day, she realizes he’s real…and possibly not quite human. Her dreams begin to descend into chaos, and soon she doesn’t know if he is there to help her, or to keep her trapped in her nightmare forever.
Suggested Author: Brenna Yovanoff
And then moving on to this week:
Song: Eli, Eli (A Walk to Caseara) by Sophie Milman
Dancers: Chehon and Kathryn (Season 6)
Choreographer: Tyce Diorio
Book Pitch: Upon their release from Auschwitz after the deaths of their parents and destruction of their home, a brother and sister struggle to put their lives back together.
Suggested Author: Ruta Sepetys
What do you think? Would you read either of these books? Did you come up with an idea for a book pitch based on any of the dances this season? I’d love to hear it!
