Eliana Girard

Eliana is a ballet dancer from West Palm Beach, Florida. Check out her profile video below:



  • I wonder what the difference between ballet and contemporary ballet is.
  • "You always feel pretty in a tutu!"
  • Sorry Eliana. On So You Think You Can Dance, there is plenty of judgment. Hope you can still find that emotional outlet!
  • It's good that someone is acknowledging the fact that this show can be a real career booster. I would imagine that's a huge deal for a dancer.

Daniel Baker

Daniel is a ballet dancer from Newcastle, Australia. Check out his profile video below:



  • Daniel has a pretty accent.
  • Before he said he became a dancer in order to see the tall buildings of the United States. Now he says he became a dancer to get candy from his mother. What can we believe??? (Probably both are true.)
  • He's kind of an incredible ballet dancer. I guess that's what you get with a professional.

Chehon Wespi-Tschopp

Chehon is a ballet dancer from Zurich, Switzerland. Check out his profile video below:



  • So he was born in Chicago? But moved to Switzerland. The more I hear about Chehon, the more intrigued I become. Who is this man???
  • He's never done any other dance styles? No wonder it was the solo that got Chehon into the Top 20.
