Russell Ferguson is an American Krump dancer from Boston, Massachusetts. He won So You Think You Can Dance season 6, making him the first Krumper to win the title. Russell is a graduate of the Boston Arts Academy and attended the University of the Arts in Philadelphia as a dance major.
So You Think You Can DanceEdit
Russell competed on season 6 of the FOX reality dance competition, So You Think You Can Dance. His partner for weeks 1-5 was Noelle Marsh. However, before taping began, Noelle was injured and unable to dance, so during the taping of week 1, Russell danced with their choreographer, Melanie LaPatin. In week 6 he danced with Mollee Gray. His partner for week 7 was to be Ashleigh Di Lello, but due to injury, she was unable to dance during the show's taping. As the first Krumper to make it to Vegas, into the Top 20, Top 10 and Finale, Russell went on to win the competition. Unfortunately, he was injured during the finale and was unable to perform his remaining routines.
