On January 22 2016, I had the chance to interview So You Think You Can Dance 12 runner-up Jaja Vankova and America’s favorite dancer, Gaby Diaz.

In our interview, we discussed what life on the tour has been like. I chatted with the pair of finalists about the importance of not giving up on the show. Jaja admitted that getting cut on the show can actually make you better as it helps motivate the dancers to practice that much harder and return with a vengeance. I asked Jaja about how she is able to move so quickly from being mild-mannered to beast mode in a routine and if the attitude necessary for krump is something that just comes naturally to her. I asked the pair about Moises and how all the other dancers seem to agree that he is the prankster on the tour bus. Jaja opened up about how hard it has been to be away from home for so long. I quizzed Gaby about becoming the first tapper to win the show and why it has taken so long for that to happen. Finally, the pair teach me a dance move.
