About The Graceful Dancer Colouring Pages
Du-Shaunt Stegall gets jittery whenever he performs on stage, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
“I get extremely nervous,” admitted the 19-year-old Wichita, Kan., native. “But I’m one of these people who, even when I’m nervous, it makes me better.”
Stegall, better known by his stage name Fik-Shun, has a lot to be nervous about. He will be performing in front of thousands in Colorado next week as part of the “So You Think You Can Dance” live show. The 42-city tour stops by Broomfield’s 1stBank Center on Nov. 12 and the World Arena in Colorado Springs on Nov. 13.
Stegall was the male winner of the Fox reality show’s 10th season, which wrapped up in September with Stegall and jazz dancer Amy Yakima on top.
The touring show features them with other finalists from the most recent season, including Aaron Turner, Hayley Erbert, Jenna Johnson, Nico Greetham and Paul Karmiryan.
From his kinetic audition videos — in which he proved himself an eerily nimble hip-hop dancer — to his smiling visage and modest attitude, Stegall was an audience favorite from the start.
“My whole mindset coming into the show was to give them all of me, and whether they like it or they don’t, this is it,” he said. “But it definitely took me a minute every week doing different routines to get into a comfort zone of being myself.”
Stegall’s balance of nerves and confidence are products of his nontraditional path through the dance world.
His father moved the family from Wichita to Las Vegas when Stegall was 12 to increase the chances of making a living doing what they loved. For Stegall, it was dancing — which led to him getting on Paula Abdul’s “Live to Dance” show three years ago, where he made it to the semifinals.
For his father, it was teaching martial arts (he now runs a studio in Pahrump, Nev.), which heavily influenced Stegall’s style. His unique blend of fluid acrobatics and robotically precise popping and locking is the visual equivalent of a DJ remixing songs on the fly.
“I’ve done martial arts almost as long as I’ve been dancing, but I never really thought about my style until ‘So You Think You Can Dance.’ A friend of mine said, ‘You know, when you’re dancing it looks like you’re fighting sometimes.’”
Freestyle battles are a longstanding tradition in hip-hop and breakdancing, so it made sense that Stegall’s dance rival at school, Deytral “Kidd Stylez” Eaviance Fletcher, soon became his partner as they paired up to perform on the Vegas strip for tips.
“People would always come up to us and be like, “Dang, how many routines do you guys have?’ And they were all improvised. That’s what happens when you dance with someone for so long.”
Stegall may have developed an effortless cool on the street, but he had to prove himself again in front of the cameras. Fortunately, his visceral connection to music and his improvisational skills gave him a leg up on the more classically trained dancers.
“I always try to be the embodiment of sound,” he said. “I’ll play a song and people think they know it, then you dance to it and accentuate all the little beats that people would miss, and they think it’s a remix. But it’s been there the whole time.”
