Full Name: Billy Bell
Hometown: West Palm Beach, FL
Currently Resides: New York, NY
Billy was too busy to watch Seasons 3 and 4 of “So You Think You Can Dance,” but got back into it this past summer: “Jeanine Mason, the Season 5 winner, is my duet partner. So I was like, ‘I have to watch it now!’ I was like, ‘I’m sorry I can’t take class on Thursdays anymore. I have to go home and watch TV.” by Korbi Ghosh, Zap2it
Billy Bell currently studies dance at The Juilliard School. He considers working with Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey on “Back to Back to Broadway” one of his greatest accomplishments. He is trained in everything from hip hop to classical ballet, and enjoys skiing and grocery-shopping.
How did it feel on the recent day with the press and photo shoot? “I feel like the lion from the Wizard of Oz. It’s fun to be taken care of for the day.” (FOX)
