Everything from the choreography to the costumes, lighting and host Cat Deeley have received critics’ recognition. The cast of the currently airing 12th season has been narrowed down to five stage dancers and five street dancers who will bring some of the season’s best routines to venues across the country.

Get rugged with obstacle race
Giant water slides, trampolines, adult bounce houses and mechanical bulls? All in one spot?
A new obstacle race coming to the Travis County Exposition Center on Sept. 5 promises all that, with a little running in between.
Competitors in the Rugged Maniac, held in 23 cities this year, will tackle a series of obstacles, including a 50-foot water slide, underground tunnels and fire jumps, spread over a 3-mile off-road course.
Afterward, they’ll celebrate at a daylong festival featuring live music, mechanical bulls, adult bounce houses, beer, food and exhibition booths. The festival is free to spectators.
Entry fee for the race is $89 at ruggedmaniac.com, or $100 at the event the day of the race ($10 discount for students and military personnel with valid identification).
