Confession: I watch the TV show, So You Think You Can Dance. I have danced on and off for much of my life--everything from ballet to African to hip hop--and I love it. Anyway, last week, "Tore My Heart" by Bay-area artist, Oona, was used for a Season 6 piece by choreographer Sonya Tayeh with Top 10 dancers Jakob and Ellenore. It was also used during Kelsea Taylor's SYTYCD Season 5 audition.
For months, SYTYCD fans have been looking for this tune. A free, short version of the MP3 is available for download at the fan site Pure So You Think You Can Dance. As of a few days ago, though, you can now purchase the full-length version from iTunes. Hurrah!
Watch the dance piece with Jakob and Ellenore here.
