So Dan Thinks He Can Dance

Dan: Well, yeah. As in all forms of art, you always have the opportunity to make a statement, whether it's something lighthearted and fun, or it's something political or it's something personal, like as in Mia's piece about her father. And I think dance is a great way to express points of views. It's all when you choose to express those views and what audience you want to express them to. And I think art is in the eye of the beholder, right? So it's all when you decide to do it yourself.

TWoP: Let's say you were the producer of the show instead of Nigel. How would So You Think You Can Dance be different? What would you do differently?

Dan : Well, I'd have me on every single episode! [Laughs]

TWoP: Did you say you or Mia?

Dan: Oh, me! [Laughs] No, I think they do a wonderful job with the show. I think Nigel and Jeff Thacker, you know, the ones who put the show together, they do a great job with casting the show, with getting the dancers on the show, the choreographers... yeah. I mean, I don't know what I'd do different. I think they do a great job of making sure that all different dance forms are represented up there, and, you know, I think their choice of choreographers is great, and I don't think there's too much different that I would do.

TWoP: What other projects are you personally working on?

Dan: Well, the show's popping up all around the world, so, rumor has it, I'll be popping up in Australia and Iceland and Norway, up on their versions of the show... So I'm pretty much busy doing that, traveling all around the world right now. I just got back from Iceland, actually, two days ago.

TWoP: Any movies in the pipeline?

Dan: Not at the moment, but hopefully pretty soon.

TWoP: Was there anything else you wanted to say? Can you reveal one surprise that we're going to see on the show this year?

Dan: [Laughs] I can't do that. That would get me in some trouble.
