BiographyEdit

Retrieved from abc.com
Allison Holker is an Emmy® nominated dancer and choreographer. Holker was nominated with Derek Hough for a 2013 Outstanding Choreography Emmy® award for their work on Dancing with the Stars. She was also a featured dancer in two of the other nominated pieces that year. Along with her fellow Emmy®-nominated choreographers, Holker prepared a piece that was performed to rave reviews at this year's Primetime Emmy® Awards with Neil Patrick Harris.

Holker began her dance training at the age of nine when she enrolled as a student at The Dance Club in Orem, UT. While there, she specialized in Contemporary, Ballet, Jazz and Tap, and performed in the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics. She has won numerous dance titles including her first National competition in Co DANCE in 2004 and as the National Senior Outstanding Dancer at the New York City Dance Alliance in 2005.

Holker first burst onto the scene when she competed in season two of So You Think You Can Dance. Her skill and popularity led to an invitation to return as an All-Star in season seven, where she met fellow dancer Stephen "tWitch" Boss. They were married in December 2013.

When not filming or traveling around the country teaching dance, she is working on her dancewear line, Creative Kin. Holker makes her home in Los Angeles with her seven-year-old daughter, six-month-old son and husband. They also collaborated as choreographers for Ellen DeGeneres' Oscars® promo directed by Bridesmaids' Paul Feig, featuring 250 dancers.
