Currently, Season 5’s Randi Evans and Jonathan Platero and Season 4’s Gev Manoukian star in the show at El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood, CA.

“I am delighted to have Mary back on the show. Her expertise in dance, coupled with her warmth, compassion and humor, make her an excellent judge and fun to work with,” said Lythgoe, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE co-creator, executive producer and judge.
Kent Boyd and Kathryn McCormick made it to the finale of their respective seasons and they were excited to get the opportunity to dance on the So You Think You Can Dance 2010 Tour. They opened up about traveling around the country, their future, and the fans.
What’s the best part about being on tour and what are you going to miss most once it’s over?
Kent: The best part about tour is finally meeting the fans one by one and just talking to them and letting them know we’re down-to-earth people. We’re just like them and we thank them for all the support they’ve given dance, the show, and to us. I feel like the thing I’m gonna miss most is just all these people. I know I’m going to see them after the show, but living with them day in and day out and sharing everything and dancing with them—you just form a bond. It’s never going to be the same because I’m never going to have to dance with all these people and share the same experience dancing again.
Kathryn: Seeing how huge of an impact this show has on people has been awesome. When you’re on the show, you don’t realize how many people are watching it. But when you do 40 shows for thousands of people and you get to meet all those people, you realize how big of an impact and how many people are so connected with you and feel like they know you. And you’ve made them realize things about yourself through the stories you’re telling on stage, so it’s incredible. That’s what inspires me to keep doing the same show every night, because you know that there are people out there that need to see that, and it’s such an incredible feeling.
When the Season 7 So You Think You Can Dance Tour stopped in Los Angeles, CA, we caught up with LA resident Robert Roldan. The second runner-up candidly spoke about his fans, Allison Holker, GLEE, and more!
With only two stops left in the 40-city tour, Robert was savoring every moment. “I’m going to miss everyone on tour,” he said. “I know that a lot of them will be moving to LA, but I won’t see them as much as I do now. Also, I feel like I’m going to miss being on stage with them and dancing with them all the time. Seeing the people that support the show and getting to meet the fans—I’m going to miss that a lot—because they’re the reason why I got where I am now.”
You both sustained injuries on the show. How do you remain injury free after performing night after night on tour?
Billy: Healthy diet, lots of physical therapy, icing, heating, massaging.
Ashley: Oh my! I don’t eat healthy at all. It’s grueling hours. You get done with the show and you do Meet & Greets and you don’t get on the bus until midnight and you’re starving. They have after-show food—
Billy: But it’s always like pizza, so it’s hard to eat healthy for sure.
Ashley: Sometimes I get the salads,
Billy: But they’re just not good! You just want pizza!
