Derek Piquette is one of the Top 20 dancers competing on So You Think You Can Dance. The 18-year-old just graduated from Chicopee High School in Massachusetts and he loves contemporary dance. (He’s on Team Stage.) When not in LA filming SYTYCD, he’s working as an instructor at Stars Dance Company in Miami, Florida.
The incredibly flexible dancer loves animals (elephants are his fave), listening to Michael Jackson, and eating bacon cheeseburgers. Piquette says he eats “like three bacon cheeseburgers a week.” Don’t stop, Derek! Whatever you’re doing is working. SYTYCD airs Mondays at 8pm on Fox.
