Joshua is America’s Favorite Dancer in 2008 for Season 4 of So You Think You Can Dance
Joshua Allen was born in Fort Worth Texas. He says he started dancing at 8, but who could ever really know? He is now an ancient 19 years old, so old for a dancer his age. Joshua didn’t grab us at the audition; it was later, when he was paired with Katee, and no matter what they threw at this couple, they not only mastered it, they killed it.
Bollywood is a classic that will definitely be on the tour. It is amazing and a prime example of how shockingly great this man is. His strength as he suspends Katee in his arms is alarming. She barely moves. The strength in his arms to catch her that way is astonishing.
Joshua has dance training, so he is no accident, but it appears much less extensive than the other dancers. He believes he can sing, because he wants to become a recording artist. Maybe he will make next year’s American Idol as well. Wow, now that would be a major first!!
One has to believe that Katee and Joshua drew the biggest lucky card in the competition when paired with each other. While both are great, their styles and strengths augmented each other and kept them out of the bottom three repeatedly, never to have to dance a solo for the judges to stay in the competition.
We have tried to find out where Joshua studied dance because the “So You Think You Can Dance” web site says he has had dance training.
We know he graduated from North Crowley High School. Apparently, from what we can garner, Joshua’s family did not have the money to pursue the traditional avenue of dance training, but in the 3rd grade, got introduced to the Debbie Allen Institute workshop. Dance captivated him right there and then, and he began to seek out any dance scholarship he could find. And in the process, got to where he is today.
Joshua is raw talent. Someone you love for his technique and quality as a person as well as talent as a dancer. How can you not love this dance with Courtney? Another dance that proves that his strength and diversity are universal.
Joshua is everything every leading lady could want. Strong, guided, and magical. If he does not take this competition, we will be quite surprised.
