“So You Think You Can Dance” Finalists Join Maks, Val & Peta
Two of the hottest stars from 2017’s So You Think You Can Dance, FOX’s hit summer competition series, are joining Maks, Val & Peta, the sensations from ABC’s Dancing with the Stars on their brand-new tour, “Maks, Val & Peta Live On Tour: Confidential.”
Chris “Kiki” Nyemchek and Koine “Koko” Iwasaki, finalists from Season 14 of the Emmy Award-winning So You Think You Can Dance are hitting the stage with Maks Chmerkovskiy, Val Chmerkovskiy, Peta Murgatroyd and a dazzling cast of the industry’s best dancers in this highly anticipated new show.
The tour, launching March 19, will see this extraordinary group conquer 49 cities in America with a spectacular dance show, driven by a narrative of true love, family, and stories that up until now have remained confidential.
Kiki Nyemcheck first started training with Maks and Val at the age of seven, and has continued to learn and perform with them ever since. “After finishing an amazing season on So You Think You Can Dance where I finished top four, I am super stoked to be on this tour,” said Kiki. “I was lucky enough to do [Maks & Val’s 2017 tour] Our Way, and feel very privileged to be joining them again.”
Koko Iwasaki added “I first worked with Val last year on So You Think You Can Dance where he taught me to salsa. It was one of my favorite dances on the show. I’m honored that Val is trusting me to be on the team, and learning a whole new style of dance for the tour is very exciting.”
