The previous season of the Fox dance reality competition, So You Think You Can Dance, wrapped up practically ages ago. Now, fans are on the edge of their seats for its upcoming season. While the show has been scouting America for its next dance sensation, impatient watchers are scouting cyberspace for news about season 5.
There’s no need to worry about the future of So You Think You Can Dance, but there is a cause for excitement. A fan of the show wrote to E! Online‘s Kristin Dos Santos, asking about anything to look forward to on the series’ fifth season. That is, other than the riveting twists on the dance floor.
According to one of entertainment’s top eyes and ears, a couple of favorites might just return next year. “Sources tell me season-three faves Pasha Kovalev and Anya Garnis may be back to choreograph in the new season,” Kristin revealed.
She continued by saying “Pasha already met up with the crew while they were auditioning in New York, but it all depends on their contracts for Nigel Lythgoe’s new reality series on Fox.”
We got to know Pasha Kovalev and Anya Garnis when they auditioned together in New York City back in 2007. Both the dancers were born in Russia, and began dancing at a very early age. Prior to their time on the show, they have been dance partners for nine years. On So You Think You Can Dance, Anya became known for being the first contestant on Mary Murphy’s “Hot Tamale Train.” Meanwhile, Pasha was noted for his cha-cha-cha with then-partner, Jessi Peralta (s3), who was injured at the time.
After being eliminated on So You Think You Can Dance, both Kovalev and Garnis made a move to other projects. They appeared on a results show performance for the seventh season of Dancing with the Stars, and also won fifth place in the American Ballroom Challenge finals.
Now that they’ve managed to catapult themselves even more to the spotlight, it’s only a matter of time before Nigel Lythgoe takes them in once more for So You Think You Can Dance.
