HOLLYWOOD—“So You Think You Can Dance” dance pros Randi Lynn Evans, Gev Manoukian and Jonathan Platero appeared on FOX News segment “Wednesday’s Child” hosted by Emmy AwardÂ®-winning news anchor Christine Devine.
Evans, Manoukian and Platero are appearing together in the hit stage production of “Ballroom With A Twist” currently running at the historic El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood, located across the street from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The FOX appearance gave the dancers the unique opportunity to promote the engagement while giving a young fan, Jeffrey, a few tips and lessons in hip hop, ballroom and salsa. All styles of dance included in the “Ballroom With a Twist” production, currently in negotiations for a Broadway engagement. “Ballroom With A Twist” is the only show that offers fans of “Dancing With The Stars,” “So You Think You Can Dance” and “American Idol” the opportunity to see the stars up-close and in-person. This ground-breaking show pushes the boundaries of ballroom dance, infusing it with energy and the intensity of the classic ballroom and the latest authentic, hip-hop and Broadway styles.
