I just saw this (and only for the SYTYCD participants, so I did a lot of slow motion scrutiny) and the only other alum I spotted was Anya. She was the twirling blond wearing short black sparkly slip-top and thigh high black "boots".
The Di Lellos were on that episode of Bones as well. Anyone else spotted?
I was a little surprised that it was Dmitry who got the speaking role, but I thought he did quite well. I'm used to him appearing to be tongue-tied during interviews (DWTS).

Well, song - not so much. But the video was riveting. I noticed a couple of familiar faces, I thought, but no names sprang into my mind to go with them. Anyone better than I am at identifying past SYTYCda dancers?

I saw Jordan Clark, S4 winner, and possibly Lindsay Leuschner, S4 4th place. Also maybe Justin Lopes from S4 auditions.

Yep, I was coming back here because Jordan's name had just popped into my head. There is a red-headed ski-jump-nose guy who looks familiar -- is it just that he looks a bit like the skater, Kevin Reynolds?

If you mean the guy at 1:11, I don't recognize him from SYTYCD. Kevin Reynolds it is, I guess!

This belongs in the Joshua Allen thread, but it is located in the Dead Thread cut-off area (archived) so it is going here.
Pacific Rim Video Press interview > Joshua on dancing with Hayley It's good to see him again. He believes Hayley will be fine and get lots of work after the show.

I love Blake! His solo to "Body Language" was one of the best across all seasons. Now that SYTYCD Canada is defunct, I wish he'd make an appearance on this show.
Ivan was one of Justin Timberlake's featured dancers and is a choreographer for his 20/20 Experience tour. I'm sure he is living his dream and I'm so proud of him! He still has that MEGA baby face, but God he's a magnificent dancer - so smooth and natural. He'll be off doing big things, but I hope he comes back to the show as an all-star or to choreograph.
Wow. I've watched this show for so many years that it feels like some of these dancers are my children and I'm watching them grow up even though we're the same age haha.

Jonathan Platero (S5 contestant, S10 choreographer) got engaged during "Ballroom with a Twist" to Oksana, who is in the DWTS troupe. She's the one with really long blond hair that (I find) can be distracting. Also in BWAT from SYTYCD are Randi Strong (formerly Randi Evans, S5), Chelsie, Dmitry, and Legacy (S6).

Good for Jonathan P. Hope they have a happy life together.
I'm always surprised by the number of non-ballroom SYTYCD contestants who "go ballroom" after the show. I would never have guessed Randi to be interested in ballroom that much, and I've never seen BWAT so I don't know if Legacy is doing ballroom or more his genre to "twist" things up a bit.
I was 1st aware of this crossover trend when the last SYTYCD Australia winner - Robbie K. - chose the "prize" of touring with Burn the Floor. Robbie was a contemporary dancer.
