A long time coming for Spandy Andy

Spandy Andy, arguably Vancouver’s most famous busker, said it was painful waiting eight months between his So You Think You Can Dance Canada audition and the airing of the show.

Spandy Andy, arguably Vancouver’s most famous busker, said it was painful waiting eight months between his So You Think You Can Dance Canada audition and the airing of the show.

Andy, who performs around town in his signature fluorescent spandex outfits, tried out for Season 3 of the reality TV show before the Olympics, but the episode didn’t air until Tuesday night.

“Everyone kept asking me, ‘How did the auditions go?’ and you can’t say anything,” he said.

Andy wore gold undies over his unitard and goggles said he impressed the judges with his routine.

“I just busted out my own style. I just love to dance.”

He was sent to the choreography round where dance instructor Blake McGrath wore an “I heart Spandy” shirt, but he struggled to perform ballroom and salsa.

“I started juggling during my routine and they gave me an A in showmanship (but didn’t put me through).”

Andy said he’ll definitely be back to try out for Season 4.

“When I first went on the show in Season 2, I went on just to be funny and silly and try to get my name out. After that I realized I want to do this, I want to be a comedian and a dancer so I’ve been training since then,” he said.

“I plan on doing this the rest of my life now.”
