LDS Dance Partners Make It on "So You Think You Can Dance" with Unbelievable Ballroom Routine

Latter-day Saints Jensen Arnold and Tristan Sosa tore up the dance floor with an incredible ballroom routine they performed for the season 14 auditions of So You Think You Can Dance.

The couple blew the judges away, earning a spot on the show's next round in Los Angeles. There, Arnold and Sosa will compete to land a top 10 spot on So You Think You Can Dance.

“Girl, you are a star,” judge Vanessa Hudgens told Jensen Arnold following the performance, according to Utah Valley 360. “You dance so beautifully. I can tell you enjoy doing it. You stayed connected to us. You kept us engaged. You sparkle. You are so adorable. I love watching you.”

"Jensen, you have so much personality. I actually can't keep my eyes off of you," judge Mary Murphy said, according to Deseret News. "Tristan, you're looking good, nice and strong. I see great things for you guys."


Arnold and Sosa have been dancing together since Arnold was 11 and Sosa was 12 years old. Both dancers are from Provo, Utah, where Sosa teaches ballroom and Arnold loves to dance with her sisters. In fact, one of Arnold's sisters, Lindsay, already competed on So You Think You Can Dance in season 9. "Jensen is such a beautiful person and dancer," Lindsay said on the show. "It's so cool to see her starting her career the same way that I did, and I know the judges are going to love her."

And there's no doubt the judges did. We wish them the best of luck as they continue in the competition!
