All-Stars Dance Pool[edit]

The "All-Stars" dance pool, introduced in season 7, is composed of notable past SYTYCD finalists who partner with new contestants for some of their routines. These non-competing dancers perform mainly in the genres that are their expertise and may perform only once or several times over the course of a season. With the exception of one Season 10 episode, they do not choreograph these routines but rather learn them alongside their contestant partners. They have also occasionally been featured in non-competitive performances during results shows, reprising old well-received routines or new group dances; however, the table below references only duets performed with competing partners.
