Whether it be American Idol, Dancing With the Stars, or So You Think You Can Dance, we’ve all loved and lost in one form or another.
And now that SYTYCD is in the midst of its ninth season, we here at thought it would be fun to check in on our past favorite dancing alums and see what they’ve been up to since leaving the show.
From earning law degrees to becoming full-out dance instructors, these former contestants have gone on to accomplish quite a bit since we last saw them.
Born as a performer, and with a passion for his craft, Neil's ride to success started with humble roots as a dancer.
He first graced the stage, and started dancing at age five at the David De Marie Dance Studio in Clarence, New York, and American Ac Neil Haskell is a bona fide triple threat, who has mastered all levels of performance from singing, dancing, and acting.
He makes even the most difficult of combinations looks effortless.
Take the time to really watch Kent during every moment of this performance and I think you’ll see why he should be named America’s Favorite Dancer during next week SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE finale.
The show is almost 10 years old — how does that make you feel? I’m very grateful and really proud of the show, and all the dancers that come back.
I would say a good half of [this year’s contestants] are probably 18 — people that we’ve never seen before, and they’ve just been waiting for the day [they can audition]. One of our guest judges this year is gonna be t Witch, who was one of our past contestants, and he’s engaged to Allison Holker, who was another one of our contestants.
Watching reality show competitions are a little bit like falling in love.
At first, the initial attraction is purely based on what you see, but as time goes on, you become more and more invested in the relationship, and do everything you can (be it voting or never-ending praying) to keep your all-time favorites in your life and on your TV screens.
