'So You Think You Can Dance' to make a stop at Joe Louis Arena on Oct. 3
DETROIT -- The "So You Think You Can Dance" tour is coming to Joe Louis Arena on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 7:30 p.m. It will feature the top 10 dancers from season five: Ade, Brandon, Evan, Janette, Jason, Jeanine, Kayla, Kupono, Melissa and Randi. Tickets are $38.50, $48.50 and $56 and are available now. Kayla Radomski and I spoke on the phone yesterday.
Radomski started dancing at the young age of two.
"My family used to watch a lot of dance movies, 'Singing in the Rain' was one of them," the dancer said. "They also would have Michael Jackson on TV. They would kind of see me copying the TV, kind of doing that. My mom put me in dance classes. I have been doing that ever since."
She competed on the FOX reality show over the summer.
"It was absolutely incredible," Radomski said. "I think that every dancer's dream, you know, dances background of a singer or a group usually and this gives us the opportunity to be seen by people and be seen individually and show off our talents. The show was about us. It's really nice to have that opportunity."
Radomski reveals the best piece of advice she received from the judges.
"I would say to really be you and really take on what a choreographer gives you," she responded. "Because it's their vision and you kind of have to do what they're asking you. People who are able to do that work a lot more cause they can take on anything a choreographer asks them to do."
The dancer finished in fourth place on the FOX reality show.
"Obviously, I was a little sad," Radomski said. "You know, we came in it to win. We all wanted to win that title but I was also very grateful because I got so many amazing compliments from the choreographers and the things that they said to me during the show and even afterwards when I talked to them at the after parties. I'm so grateful because those people are hiring and working in that industry right now so they know what people are looking for. To hear great compliments from them makes me feel very accomplished like I can just go out there and do my thing."
Radomski is in the middle of a big nationwide tour that began on Sept. 20 in New Hampshire and ends on Nov. 21 in Washington.
"The tour has been amazing so far," she said. "It's awesome to go out there and perform in front of these huge audiences. It's very different from being in the studio."
The dancer said she's been to Detroit before, but never to perform.
"I've been to Detroit before, just for competitions, Radomski said. "This will be my first time performing in Detroit."
Radomski said that fans will be very entertained at the show on Oct. 3 in Detroit.
"They're going to be very entertained," she said. "It's a bunch of the favorite routines from the season. So there's bound to be a routine that each person absolutely loved on the show. It's cool cause they get to see it live. There's no cuts or camera angles. They get to see everything."
She offered some advice to girls who are considering to be a dancer.
"I would say always push yourself, always give 100 percent and to never give up," the dancer said. "Don't let anyone bring you down. Always follow your dreams. If you work hard, something is bound to come out of it."
The dancer has some big plans made up for her future after the tour comes to a close.
"After the tour, I plan on moving to Los Angeles," Radomski said. "And just working on becoming a travolta performer that I've always wanted to be. So auditioning, and hoping to get into movies and TV, all of that stuff."
Tickets are still available for the "So You Think You Can Dance" tour at the Joe Louis Arena this Saturday.
"Please come see the tour," she said. "Everyone will absolutely love it. To all the fans, thank you for the support. We would not be here without them."
