So You Think You Can Dance Canada's Breanne Wong And Kevin Mylrea Eliminated



    -- Eighteen Remain as First Two Competitors are Eliminated --

    TORONTO, Oct. 9 /CNW/ - The first two dancers of the season have been
eliminated from So You Think You Can Dance Canada, leaving 18 competitors in
the running next week for the chance to become Canada's favourite dancer. The
results were revealed live during tonight's broadcast by host Leah Miller
after the three couples with the lowest number of votes were pulled to centre
stage.

    So You Think You Can Dance Canada's first-ever bottom three couples were
Natalli Reznik, 28, Toronto, Ont., and Kevin Mylrea, 22, Westbank, B.C., who
performed a hip-hop routine, Breanne Wong, 25, Ajax, Ont., and Francis
Lafrenière, 28, St. Bruno, Que. who performed a Smooth Waltz routine and
Romina D'Ugo, 22, Toronto, Ont., and Dario Milard, 19, St. Hubert, Que. who
danced a hip-hop routine. Following the reveal, each dancer had the
opportunity to dance for their lives before the judges deliberated and decided
that Breanne Wong, a contemporary dancer and Kevin Mylrea, also a contemporary
dancer, would be the first dancers eliminated from the competition.

    Opening the Results show the Top 20 performed a Capoeira group number
choreographed by Paul Becker, who first appeared on So You Think You Can Dance
Canada as a judge during the Vancouver auditions. Bursting with jumps, flips
and rhythmic movement, the 20 competitors were decked out in tribal costumes
as they bounced off trampolines and thrilled the audience performing to
"Maculele", by Brazilian Mestre Marcos Barrco.
