‘Dance’ Reject Won’t Be Broken

SALT LAKE CITY (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The latest So You Think You Can Dance reject won’t be broken.

Gev Manoukian, a breakdancer from Salt Lake City, was kicked off SYTYCD last Thursday (Jul. 17), and although his heart is a bit broken, at least his body isn’t.

Surprisingly, Manoukian says he’s never suffered any serious injuries from breakdancing, aside from the occasional pulled muscle.

He says, “It’s actually really weird that I’ve never been injured, since I throw myself all over the place.”

But the B-boy has had a blow to the ego on the dancefloor.

One of his most embarrassing dance moments happened last week on SYTYCD, when he performed a breakdancing solo and couldn’t quite nail the moves.

Says Manoukian: “I was supposed to jump over my leg at the beginning, but it didn’t work. I had to change it up and use another move, but I’m hoping no one noticed!”

SYTYCD airs Wednesdays and Thursdays on FOX.
