Lacey Schwimmer and Hok Konishi, former finalists on So You Think You Can Dance season 3, are currently preoccupied with the show's North American tour.  While they are pleased with the opportunity to flaunt their groovy dance moves, they are most blissful about the rare chance to travel and spend time with each other.

As reported previously, Konishi met Lacy Schwimmer through her brother Benji Schwimmer.  Konishi became friends with Benji during season 2, wherein Konishi failed to make it as a finalist while Benji emerged as the champ.  On the third season of the competitive dance show, Konishi become a finalist, but failed to make it to the top 10.  Lacey, on the other hand, finished in fourth place.

Lacey, a 19-year-old swing and international Latin dancer, and Konishi, a 22-year-old break-dancer, gushed about their romance prior to the So You Think You Can Dance tour, which commenced last month.

"Being on tour is an amazing experience, but I couldn't imagine it without Hok," Lacey Schwimmer said in the October 22 issue of In Touch Weekly.  "He is by far the best thing that ever happened to me.  It's exciting to know that I have my best friend and my love with me at all times."

As for Konishi, he's glad that both of them can finally be open about their feelings for each other and put rumors that they have been dating their So You Think You Can Dance partners to rest.

"The funniest thing is when people still ask us if there is anything between me and [Jaime Goodwin] or between Lacey and [Kameron Bink]," Konishi said.  "Those rumors were spreading while we were on the show!"

So far, there are still about 20 stopovers for the So You Think You Can Dance live tour, including today's event in Toronto, Ontario.
