Remember this guy?

JOKES. Who could possibly forget the amazingly talented—and downright adorable—Du-Shaunt "Fik-Shun" Stegall?

He won our hearts last year on the "So You Think You Can Dance" stage—conquering one style after another alongside his beautiful partner in crime (and fellow Season 10 winner) Amy Yakima. And even though the two have passed their crown (crowns?) on to Season 11 champ Ricky Ubeda, we certainly haven't fallen out of love with this so-good-it's-unreal dancer. (After all, you never really stop being America's favorite dancer. We just keep collecting more and more favorites!)

At World of Dance CityWalk 2014, Fik-Shun's live performance demonstrated that he doesn't just still got it—he's got it and so much more. It's wonderful to see "SYT" alums continue to develop as artists after the show, and Fik-Shun is no exception. This performance demonstrated a whole new level of musicality and originality. Plus, it's still got that humorous showmanship that we all fell in love with back in 2013. Check it out!

These days, she splits her time between NYC and Philadelphia, PA, where she continues to beef up her classical training at The Rock School for Dance Education.

She's not a traditional bunhead, and she's not a run-of-the-mill social influencer, either. Instead, Ware is creating her own hybrid career path—and it's taking her to impressive places.

Dear Katie,

Do I need private lessons? I'm a professional-track dancer, and my teachers say that I should start scheduling privates to advance more quickly. But they're so expensive. Will I make it if I stick to group classes?
