#SYTYCD Book Pitch – Season 9 Week 6 & 7 (@DANCEonFOX)

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!

Past pitches:

#SYTYCD Book Pitch – Season 9, Week 2 (@DANCEonFOX @MyraMcEntire)

Welcome to Week 2 of my new feature, where I come up with a book pitch inspired by a routine from last night’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance. These won’t necessarily be my favorite dances or dancers, just dances that inspire some sort of story in my mind.

But in case you’re wondering, this is my favorite couple this season. And as a bonus, if an author ever decides to take me up on one of these pitches (because goodness knows I’m not going to write them) and picks a dance with Matthew, and then if their book is adapted into a movie, it can star Ryan Gosling. Because seriously, Matthew looks like dancing Ryan Gosling.

I’m going to honestly be surprised if there’s not a Dancing Gosling Twitter avatar and Tumblr by the end of the season, complete with dancing “Hey Girl” memes.

But I digress.

Song: Hear Me Now (Dri, Lind & Lukka Mix) by Steed Lord

Choreographer: Sonya Tayeh

Dancers: Matthew and Audrey

Pitch: In a future where personal interaction has been banned and all contact must be virtual, a lonely young scientist creates a robotic companion to keep him company. But when she unexpectedly develops her own personality and desires, he realizes he may have gotten in over his head.

Suggested Author: Myra McEntire (She writes relationships so well that I think she could make this semi-creepy concept seem not so creepy)

So You Think You Can Dance airs on FOX on Wednesdays at 8 EST. And no, they don’t have any idea who I am.
