Due to Anya and Pasha’s popularity and success competing on “So You Think You Can Dance” season 3, they have been featured in the 7th season as All Star dancers, partnering up with the contestants to help them compete for the title of America’s favorite dancer.

Anya has also been a guest dancer on “Dancing with the Stars,” “Superstars of Dance” and “The Academy Awards.” She was born in Latvia and has been a superstar of the ballroom world for 10 years. Born in Siberia, Russia, Pasha started dancing at age 8. Following a successful career in ballroom competition, he has appeared on many TV shows including “So You Think You Can Dance,” “Dancing with the Stars” and “Superstars of Dance.” Anya and Pasha have also choreographed for the US and Australia versions of “So You Think You Can Dance.”

The fall portion of the tour also features “So You Think You Can Dance” alums Ashleigh Di Lello, Ryan Di Lello, Robbie Kmetoni, Janette Manrara and Karen Hauer. All five have been seen on TV’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” in the US (Ashleigh & Ryan Di Lello, Janette Manrara and Karen Hauer, Top 10 Finalists) and Australia (Robbie Kmetoni, 2010 Winner).

Years before “Dancing with the Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance” turned Ballroom Dancing into must-see TV, BURN THE FLOOR was blazing a new dance trail and igniting stages around the globe. In BURN THE FLOOR, Ballroom Dance is totally reinvented. All the dance styles are refreshed and invigorated and leave audiences grinning with delight and screaming for more. You see and feel, live on stage, all the passion, drama and sizzling excitement of 20 gorgeous world champion dancers in a true theatrical experience, a performance with a grace and athleticism that The New York Times calls, “Dazzling!” and The Times (London) calls “the summer’s hottest ticket”!

BURN THE FLOOR is directed and choreographed by Jason Gilkison and will be at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre for eight performances. Tickets range from $23.50 to $78.50 and are available on-line at tickets.com, stgpresents.org or BroadwayAcrossAmerica.com and by calling 877-STG-4TIX (4849) or in person at The Paramount Theatre Box Office (Monday through Friday, 10am to 6pm).
