Fox has announced casting call locations for the fourth season of So You Think You Can Dance, the network's American Idol-like reality competition series that search's for America's favorite dancer.

Producers for the summer series have expanded their search from four cities to six, traveling to Dallas, Charleston, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Milwaukee and Salt Lake City to find talented dancers who "best represent the rhythm of America." 

Those who spark interest during auditions will then be invited to call-backs where they will work with choreographers to determine the Top 20 dancers who will continue in the competition.

So You Think You Can Dance third-season champ Sabra Johnson -- the first woman to win the competition -- received $250,000 and the title of "America's Favorite Dancer" after a "record breaking" 16 million viewer votes were cast for the season's finale.  Fox had already announced So You Think You Can Dance's fourth-season renewal prior to the show's August 2007 third-season finale broadcast.

Cat Deeley will return to host the show's fourth season, with Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy once again reprising their judging duties alongside choreographers who will serve as weekly guest judges.  So You Think You Can Dance was created by Lythgoe and Simon Fuller and is produced by 19 Entertainment, Ltd. and Dick Clark Productions.  It is executive-produced by Fuller, Lythgoe and Allen Shapiro.

Casting is open to persons between the ages of 18 and 30 at the time of the audition who are either U.S. citizens, permanent residents of the U.S., or possess a current legal visa allowing them to seek employment in the U.S. without restriction as to employer.
