This is some horrible news. SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE judge/choreographer, Alex DeSilva, was arrested for alleged sexual assault against four former students.

According to the L.A. Police Department, the four victims in this case were all students of DeSilva at the time of the assaults. The victims alleged that he lured them to his homes in North Hollywood and Van Nuys. He then used a ruse to get them into his bedroom where he raped them.

In addition to his work with SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. DeSilva won the World Salsa Dancing Championships in 2002 and 2007 and currently teaches at the Los Angeles area dance schools.

The Los Angeles Police Department released a booking photo as authorities believe there may be other victims. DeSilva’s bail has been set at $3.8 million dollars.

    What a disgusting creep. Ugh. Thoughts and prayers to his victims… both the ones who have come forward and any who have not.

    This is a bunch of crap. He lured FOUR students into his room, overpowered them all, and raped them one at a time??? Baloney. These kids want money because he is famous. I don’t buy it.

    Misty, maybe you should try brushing up on your reading comprehension. He was accused of raping four students, not ‘four students at one time’….big difference, don’t you think?

    Hey Nicole, I’m not taking sides but maybe you should read carefully as well, she said “one at a time”….
