Before Alan Bersten was a professional dancer on Dancing With The Stars, he was on another popular dance show. He appeared alongside his DWTS costar Jenna Johnson on So You Think You Can Dance Season 10.
Now that So You Think You Can Dance is back on Fox, they’re looking for professional dancers to lend a hand.
Keep reading to see what role Alan Bersten filled when the show reached out.
Alan Bersten returns to the stage where he got his big break
Alan was only 19 years old when he appeared on SYTYCD back in 2013. Unfortunately, he was cut just before the top 10. But even making it to the top 20 is a dream come true for many dancers.
From there, Alan went on to get a job as a troupe member on Dancing With The Stars, starting in Season 20. He became a pro dancer in Season 25 and took home the Season 28 Mirrorball Trophy.
So what’s he doing back on the set of So You Think You Can Dance?
As it turns out, they asked Alan to come back and choreograph for the hopeful contestants.
“I can’t even lie this is such a full circle moment, and it means a lot to me,” the 28-year-old dancer shared on Instagram. “I am so excited to share that I had the incredible opportunity to choreograph for tonight’s episode on @danceonfox !!! 9 years ago I was a contestant and here I am back in the studio probably even more nervous than before! It was such a great experience, so please make sure to tune in tonight to watch it!!”
New episodes of So You Think You Can Dance air on Fox on Wednesday nights. Tune in and see if you can spot any more DWTS fan favorites in future episodes!
Will the Season 28 champ come back to DWTS this fall?
Dancing With The Stars is moving to Disney+ this fall. Most of the judges will be back, but no one knows which pro dancers will join the cast yet. But Alan Bersten really hopes that producers will ask him to return. He even praised the decision to switch platforms.
“Streaming is taking over the world and Disney is such an amazing platform. I don’t know much about numbers but they have surpassed 130 million subscribers in only two or three years!” Alan told HELLO! “I also think it will be amazing to be the first live show on a streaming platform, and our west coast fans will be able to vote for the first time when it actually matters. Before it was like, ‘just vote for me, trust me, we’ll be good,’ so it feels inclusive to everyone.”
