SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Finalist Carlos Garland Joins iLUMINATE
Carlos Garland, Season 10 finalist on Fox TV's "So You Think You Can Dance," joined the cast of iLUMINATE on June 23rd at New World Stages.
The new 2014 edition of iLUMINATE opened January 27th. iLuminate wowed the nation with their groundbreaking light suits and innovative dance moves on NBC's "America's Got Talent," where the dance-in-the-dark sensation was selected as one of the hit show's top finalists after judge Piers Morgan called them "The Best New Act in America!"
Music, art, dance, and the technological magic of iLuminate brings this extraordinary spectacle to the New York stage, combining mythical elements with adventure and romance, told through dance styles which include contemporary, hip-hop, Latin, and breaking, all using the power of light.
In addition to his sensational appearances on "So You Think You Can Dance," Carlos Garland won BET's 106 & Park dance competition on "Wild Out Wednesday" with his dance crew Systematic. Carlos has also toured with Rasta Thomas' hugely popular dance company, Bad Boys of Dance.
