Salsa Verde & SYTYCD

salsa verde

It isn’t any news that I love me my TV shows.  But there is only ONE reality TV show that I must watch religiously, and that show is So You Think You Can Dance.

I can remember the first time that I just happened upon it back in college, and I was instantly hooked…. and completely jealous that I couldn’t dance like the near professionals on the show. I realize how illogical my jealousy was/is.

The Season 10 finale was Tuesday night, and I am one happy girl. This season was INCREDIBLE. Soooo many amazing dancers. Travis Wall… your choreography… IT. KILLS. ME. And I love it. And the group number…. the music with the rocking chairs! It’s so moving (pun not intended)!

SYTYCD and Salsa Verde go together for obvious reasons right?

One, they both start in an “S.”

Two, they both….. uh…. are loved by me!

Third, why do they have to have something in common?!

Fourth, can’t a write about two very separate loves in the same blog post?!

Fifth, salsa is a kind of dance!!!

salsa verde, sincerely jill

Ok… this is a stretch, but just go with it: both SYTYCD and Salsa Verde instantly became favorites as soon as I came in contact with them. Love at first watch/bite. Once you start, I dare you to not have some more! So please, go whip up some salsa, plop down, and watch these dances. You won’t be disappointed!
