BBC 'So You Think You Can Dance' - Tutorials

For BBC's series 'So You Think You Can Dance' we were brought in to shoot 13 x dance tutorials with the series choreographers. From Cha Cha, Waltz to Hip Hop and Disco, we covered the lot. These all were to support the series being TX'd and went online as part of the S.Y.T.Y.C.D website's goodies.

Sisco warm up for one of the tutorials.

Down time in between shots.

I love the catchlights our 'kisslite' gives for this type of filming... very soft and wrap around.

Shot all on location we provided 2 x HD camera crews shooting on jibs and dollies with an EFP lighting package and for the main key and fill we went with follow spots to move with the talent.

It was a very tight schedule on these shoots with an output of about 3 dances per location scheduled over 5 days,...however we managed to complete the series in only 3 days of shooting.

In this example, Charlotte Stevens puts you through the paces to learn a DISCO routine.

 ... and here Sisco Gomes runs you through a POP routine... for the ladies!

So dust of your glam rags, sparkle you shoes and take to the floor!
