On Wednesday, I had the chance to catch up with finalist Zack Everhart at the So You Think You Can Dance 11 finale in Los Angeles.
I asked Zack if he felt like he became the little engine that could as the series went on and went from being one of the underdogs of the season to becoming one of its favourites. We also chatted about how tap dancers have had a a lot of success on So You Think You Can Dance recently with him and Valerie making the finals this year and Aaron Turner making it to the end on Season 10. I asked Zack if the thought that tappers were finally getting the recognition that they so richly deserve. I told Zack that in most seasons, a big deal would have been made out of a tap dancer being able to pick up all of the different styles of dance that are required for the program but that in his case, it was almost accepted that he would be able to pick up anything and if he noticed that as well. Just like everyone else on the carpet, Zack also agreed that Ricky winning was the result that everyone had been expecting. Finally, continuing the So You Think You Can Dance finale tradition, Zack tried to teach me a dance move. Let’s just say I had a little difficulty with it.
