Dismissed Dancer Shakes It For Shock Value

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Most white guys have no rhythm – but one dismissed dancer from So You Think You Can Dance likes proving the stereotypes wrong by shocking audiences with his rhythmic hip-hop moves.

Ivan Koumaev, who was eliminated from the Dance competition on Thursday (Aug.3), is aware that he looks like a typical “lanky white boy.”

And that’s precisely the reason why he specializes in hip-hop dancing.

As he puts it, “I like to shock people. When I walk into hip-hop dance studios people assume I got lost or something – that I must not be there to dance.”

Koumaev adds, “But then I bust out some of the most ghetto-fabulous hip-hop moves you’ve ever seen and people’s mouths drop. It’s awesome.”

While his heart remains in hip-hop, Koumaev hopes to train as a contemporary dancer to beef up his “pretty fly for a white guy” dancer image.
