atte3127From a media release:

The Top 16 are Revealed as “BONELESS” and TEYA are Eliminated on CTV’s SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA

  • Guest judges Sergio Trujillo and Dan Karaty join Jean Marc Genereux and Tré Armstrong behind the judge’s desk August 1 and 2
  • Blake McGrath to choreograph the Top 16 group number

It was revealed live tonight after a contentious judges debate that Dwayne “BONELESS” Gulston (23), a Hip-Hop and Popping dancer from Toronto, ON and TEYA Wild (23), a Hip-Hop dancer from North Vancouver, BC, would be the next two dancers leaving the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA stage. The results were revealed after host Leah Miller announced the three couples with the lowest number of votes who then had the opportunity to dance for their lives. The 16 remaining dancers will take to the stage on Monday, August 1 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV (go to ctv.ca to confirm local listings).

The bottom three couples who performed their solos for Canada this week were GEISHA Chin (19), a Contemporary dancer from Toronto, ON and ADAM LoPapa (19), a Jazz dancer from Woodbridge, ON who performed a “glow in the dark” Jazz routine; YULIYA Zavadska (29), a Latin dancer from Toronto, ON and FRANÇOIS Pruneau (26), a Ballroom dancer from Trois-Rivières, QC, who danced a sizzling mambo routine; and “BONELESS” and TEYA who performed an hard-hitting Krump routine. Following the reveal, each dancer had the opportunity to dance for their lives before the judges. After a lengthy deliberation and heated debate, the judges decided that “BONELESS” and TEYA would be the next two dancers eliminated from the competition.

Opening tonight’s show was a dramatic Argentinian tango group number choreographed by Toronto native and world renowned Broadway choreographer, Sergio Trujillo. The theatre-inspired routine featured the Top 18 dancers dominating the stage with tango duets and acrobatic stunts with scarves to the music “El Tango De Roxanne” by Jose Feliciano and “No Pregunto Cuantos Son” by Bojofondo.
