The morning after Witney Carson and Cole Horibe were eliminated from So You Think You Can Dance, they hopped on the phone with the press to chat about their Season 9 experience, the tour, and the future.
What was the biggest shock?
Witney – I had no idea what to expect. This experience was much harder than I thought it would be, mentally and physically.
Cole – Getting on to the show in general. I wasn’t expecting much when I tried out, so it was definitely a pleasant surprise.
What was your favorite piece from the season?
Cole – The Sonya Tayeh routine with Allison Holker was my favorite. Overall, it was such an amazing experience working with Sonya. She inspires you to give 200% into everything. She also instills confidence in you and trusts you as an artist to make your own interpretations, and Allison is also phenomenal.
Witney – The Whitney Houston dance with Stacey Tookey. She is the sweetest person ever and pushed me so hard. That was the most rewarding and trying experience for me.
What about the tour are you most looking forward to?
Cole – I’m excited to travel around the country and do what I love – dance!
Witney – I’m excited to see the fans and show them what we love to do.
What are your post-tour plans?
Witney – I just want to keep dancing. I would love to get into acting and singing too. I am excited to see what the future holds.
Cole – I want to be in movies and on TV because acting has been my goal since I was a child.
