Insider Kristyn Burtt recently posted a video on TikTok announcing the four dancers who will be part of the troupe for Season 31. The troupe is made up of professional dancers who aren’t paired with celebrities but perform as backup dancers and fill in for other pros if needed.
One of the names on the list is So You Think You Can Dance Season 17 winner Alexis Warr Burton. The 22-year-old dancer has a history on talent shows, including America’s Got Talent and World of Dance. She also danced on Derek Hough’s tour, as well as the DWTS live tour.
This season’s troupe will also feature Sasha Farber, who competed with Suni Lee last season. He won’t be paired with a celebrity for Season 31. The other male member of the group is Ezra Sosa, who first joined the troupe last season and later joined JoJo Siwa’s tour.
Rounding out the four-dancer troupe is Kateryna Klishyna, a dancer from Ukraine. She previously competed on So You Think You Can Dance in her home country.
