The Callbacks are often collectively portrayed as one of the most exhausting and stressful stages of the competition; each successive round sees cuts in which a significant portion of the remaining dancers are eliminated from competition and dancers are given a limited amount of time to adapt to styles they are sometimes wholly unfamiliar with while being physically taxed by the rapid progression of rounds and a limited amount of rest.At the end of this process, usually less than 40 competitors remain in a pool that final contestants are chosen from.These couples perform 1–2 duets per week in randomly selected styles.These duets, as with all non-solo performances at this stage in the competition, are choreographed by professional choreographers.On January 30, 2017, Fox renewed the series for a fourteenth season, which premiered on June 12, 2017. The open auditions, the first stage in determining a seasons finalists, take place in 5–6 major U. cities each season and are typically open to anyone aged 18–30 at the time of their audition.A typical season of So You Think You Can Dance is divided between a selection process, during which expert judges select competitors from a wide pool of applicant dancers, and a competition phase, during which these 'finalists' (more typically referred to as the 'Top 20') compete for votes from home viewers. The cities where auditions are held change from season to season but some, such as Los Angeles and New York, have featured in most seasons.The second stage of the selection process is referred to as "the callbacks" (the round has often been held in the city of Las Vegas and also been known as "Vegas Week" for much of the show's run, but has been called Academy Week since season 13).
Alternatively, if judges are on the fence about the dancer, they may ask the contestant to wait until the end of that day's auditions to participate in a short test of their ability to pick up professional choreography.
