So You Think You Can Dance: Chatting with Melissa Sandvig

Melissa Sandvig, the so called Naughty Ballerina, provided a number of monumental firsts during this season of So You Think You Can Dance. Melissa was the first ballerina to get beyond the first few weeks, at 29 she was the oldest contestant to have taken the So You Think You Can Dance stage, and she graced us with a text book classical pas de deux, the first ever performed on the show.

While Melissa sold herself short at the beginning of the competition, describing herself as "only a ballerina," she proved to be adept at every style thrown at her throughout her time on So You Think You Can Dance. Whether it was a sexy rumba or a joyful Broadway hippie dance, Melissa brought incredible beauty, dedication, and technique to the stage.

This morning I had a chance to chat with Melissa about her time on So You Think You Can Dance, where she carried herself with the same grace and class that marked her time on the show. We chatted about her thoughts on the two girls who will be dancing in the finals, her partnership with Ade, and her advice for fellow ballerinas.
