Dance Signature Move:
From L.A., Phillip went to a performing arts high school and started working right after graduation on tours and doing Broadway shows in New York, but he says making the Top 20 eclipses all those other experiences: “‘So You Think You Can Dance’ provides an opportunity for artists to step into their own skins. I can’t think of a better way to grow and define yourself creatively.” by Korbi Ghosh, Zap2it
