This week it was KEVIN Howe (22), a Contemporary dancer from Ottawa and SHELAINA Anderson (20), a Contemporary dancer from Edmonton who were eliminated from So You Think You Can Dance Canada Season 4, leaving the following seven GTA dancers still in the running for the title of Canada’s Favorite Dancer:
- ADAM LoPapa (19), a Jazz dancer from Woodbridge
- GEISHA Chin (19), a Contemporary dancer from Toronto
- JOEY Arrigo (19), a Contemporary dancer from Newmarket
- LINDSAY Leuschner (19), a Contemporary dancer from Stouffville
- MELISSA Mitro (23), a Contemporary dancer from Richmond Hill
- SHANE Simpson (23), a Jazz dancer from Thornhill
- YULIYA Zavadska (29), a Latin dancer from Toronto
In particular, Melissa Mitro (above) received a standing ovation three weeks in a row! Will this demure dancer often found enjoying social dancing in one of Toronto’s many Salsa clubs become Canada’s next Favorite Dancer?
The top 14 dancers will perrform next week on Monday, August 8 at 8 p.m. on CTV in front of judges Jean Marc Genereux and Tré Armstrong as well as guest judges Rex Harrington, Melissa Williams and Dan Karaty. They will work with choreographers Luther Brown, Blake McGrath, Stacey Tookey, Sabrina Matthews, Gustavo Vargas, Sho-Tyme and SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA alumni Francis Lafreniere and Claudia Primeau.
For anyone who missed this week’s SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA shows, encores of the Performance and Results shows air back-to-back Fridays at 7 p.m. on MuchMusic.
