So You Think You Can Dance, the dance version of American Idol tends to explore serious themes through the art of dance. For the first time, they did a routine of a couple having to separate due to deployment. While it went fairly under the radar, it is an important moment where a mainstream show focused on something military couples and families go through and expressing it through an unusual art form.
A demographic that may not necessarily think, or be exposed to military issues got a chance to if nothing else briefly think about what those that are serving and their loved ones go through. It is a victory for the military community when that type of message can get across to those outside the community and that may not understand the types of sacrifices faced.
