What is not to love about Ryan? Check out that hair! And the boy is one of 14 finalists on "So You Think You Can Dance" -the dancer's version of "American Idol." Not only is Ryan Asian American, he's one of just a few b-boys who have made it through the first eliminations. Of course, I have only watched it once so I don't know how he's been doing lately, but he's hung in there with the formally trained dancers in a competition that heavily favors those with studio time over street time. I do know that Allan Frias, known as "Big Poppa" on the show is a hip hop teacher in San Francisco -and some Hyphen staffers take his class! And I took a salsa class (probably the most suggestive combination I've ever done) from Alex da Silva, one of the judges. The next eliminations will be determined by audience vote --and wouldn't it be great to see an Asian up there? And luckily, you have not one but two to choose from! Another Filipina: Melody Lacayanga. Melody is awesome. She doesn't have a signature hairdo like Ryan, but she's got awesome technique, she can shake it in hip-hop class, and she can hang out in arabesque like she's sipping coffee at Peets. If you don't give a cracked nut about dance I'm not going to change your mind -but tune in at the end to vote! I want to keep seeing my peeps being represented on the tube.
