So You Think You Can Dance

Editorial Review

Of all the gay clubs that were forced to close to make room for the Nationals stadium, only Ziegfeld's/Secrets has managed to reopen, and it's making the most of its new, expanded location. Wednesday is the second installment of the monthly "So You Think You Can Dance?" amateur dance contest, and if you've ever seen the go-go boys at Secrets, you may have guessed that this has very little to do with Fox's "American Idol"-like talent show. Instead, the would-be dancers strut around the stage wearing only undies -- contestants receive a pair of briefs from one of designer Andrew Christian's barely-there lines -- to win a $500 cash prize. Signups begin at 10:30 and the contest starts at 11; nude male "professional" dancers perform before and after the competition.
