NEW YORK -- Recently on the Fox TV show "So You Think You Can Dance," there was a surprise: In between contestants, a guest artist named Jason Samuels Smith came out and tap danced, unaccompanied, for two minutes. With his goatee and dreadlocks, he seemed to fit in with the show's urban cool aesthetic, and his technique was clearly impressive -- amazingly fast, intricate. The audience shrieked. The judges stood to applaud.
