BREAKING DOWN THE RIFFS' Natalie Weiss Will 'Break Down the Moves' as BWW TV's Guest SYTYCD Recapper Tonight

Natalie Weiss is known for "Breaking Down the Riffs," but tonight, she will be "Breaking Down the Moves," as she becomes BWW TV's first Celebrity Guest-Recapper. Since I will be at a movie premiere and unable to recap SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, Natalie has graciously agreed to step in.

While this Broadway alum is known for teaching legit singers how to riff with the best of 'em on her show BREAKING DOWN THE RIFFS, her dance credentials are legit. Check out the videos below to sample her steps, and come back to BroadwayWorld TV on Thursday morning for Natalie's sure-to-be epic SYTYCD recap.

Natalie regularly "live"-tweets her favorite shows, including SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, and The Bachelorette @Natalie_Weiss, so she is no stranger to sharing her thoughts about what she's watching.


Yesterday I spoke to Natalie about taking on this monumental task for BWW TV:

Anyone who follows you on Twitter knows that you love SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. Why is this show something that you are passionate about?

I have watched every episode since Season 1. A lot of other reality shows, especially singing competitions like AMERICAN IDOL, THE VOICE, etc. are more based on looks, personality and back-story. So, I love how even AMAZING, trained dancers can watch SYTYCD and admit that it's LEGITIMATELY based on talent.

I enjoy all of your "live"-tweeting, even of shows that I know nothing about; so what can readers expect from your SYTYCD recap tonight?

When I tweet, I like to think of it as if I'm talking to friends while we are all watching together on the couch. Basically, I am typing my verbal reactions as I say them OUTLOUD. If I'm impressed by a dancer, I will say it. If I'm not impressed by a dancer, I will say it... nicely.


Here's Natalie doing some great accent work and tapping up a storm with some LES MISERABLES co-stars:

And what about some Hip Hop? Check out Natalie in the Blue shirt and hat from her college days:
