So You Think You Can Dance Season 17 Episode 6: Alexis and Keaton steal the show
Titled Girls Night Out, Alexis and Keaton brought their grooviest moves to the stage with their steamy ballroom routine. The pair performed a very spicy Cha-Cha that left the audience wanting more. Keaton shared that the story of their performance was a cat and mouse game. He had to play the “dirty dude,” which he claimed was completely the opposite of his personality.
Very likely Alexis is gonna move on to the Top 10 next week based on that ballroom performance alone! #SYTYCD

Their choreographer shared that technically the dance was very challenging. He also added that the main element they could not perform without was their chemistry. The pair took center stage and danced their night away to I Like It Like That (Uproot Andy Remix) by Pete Rodriguez. They wanted their performance to be steamy, and that’s exactly what they brought to the stage.
The So You Think You Can Dance duo aced the fast-paced routine and didn’t miss a beat. For someone who hasn’t danced a ballroom routine before, Keaton definitely matched up to Alexis’s energy. After their performance, Keaton revealed that so far, he has had only two ballroom lessons in his life.
Alexis and Keaton were amazing!!
And the fact that Keaton has only had two ballroom lessons before learning this routine is incredible.

The So You Think You Can Dance judge said:
“You commanded the stage like this was your moment right now. Keaton, I’m so proud of what you did. I also know what it is to learn ballroom within a week to have a ballroom dancer as your partner saving your life.”
tWitch also added that if they moved on in the competition, that he wanted Keaton to explore the possibilities of a cat and mouse chase.
Leah Remini shared that Keaton’s performance was amazing and that he owned it. Leah added that she was proud of them. The So You Think You Can Dance judge remarked that Alexis’s flip was crazy, and she was overall entertained with their performance.
