Sonya Tayeh: So You Think You Can Dance Judge

May 21, 2009

Meet Sonya Tayeh, a choreographer who was a guest judge on the season premiere of So You Think You Can Dance. Check out her videos here.

Sonya Tayeh was a guest judge on tonight’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance. The auditions were held in Brooklyn, New York and Denver, Colorado. Tayeh, who is a contemporary choreographer, joined the judges in Colorado. Sonya seemed to enjoy the judging process and even seemed to have a favorite dancer, Natalie.

We don’t have much of a biography on Sonya, but we do know she is an established choreographer. She is part of the MSA and has quite a extensive list of choreographed credits to her name. She is best known for using Contemporary, Funk, Progressive Contact, Floor Barre, House, and Modern styles of dance in her routines.

So You Think You Can Dance kicked off its fifth season with a two hour premiere. The premiere will continue tomorrow night for another two hour audition session. Cat Deeley is back to host while Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy rejoin the judges’ table.

All you fans will be thrilled to know that So You Think You Can Dance has become such a summer hit, the sixth season of SYTYCD will air this fall!

Check out a ton of Sonya Tayeh videos below!

    Sonja is amazing! SYTYCD is reality T.V., but it’s really ART! Sonja creates the most beautiful movement. I’m so glad that SYTYCD and Sonja found each other. This is the perfect venue to raise appreciation for this beautiful form of expression so that the general public really “gets” it.

    I heard this song by Katie Miller Heidke. “Gods Gift to Woman” and all I could think about was I wonder if Sonya would coreograph a routine to this song, I think only you could do this song justice,
