The day after the So You Think You Can Dance Tour wrapped, Season 8′s runner-up and second runner-up–Sasha Mallory and Marko Germar–hopped on a plane for Rogers, Arkansas. They were invited to perform at a Walmart event called “A Celebration of Community,” to recognize individuals, businesses, and organizations that embrace and support the inclusion of diverse people in community and corporate activities, making the Northwest Arkansas community a better place to live, work, and raise a family. The event took place at the John Q. Hammons Center, and Sasha and Marko were joined by American Idol Season 10′s Pia Toscano, who also performed. You may remember Pia from her results show performance on Dance this season.
Sasha tweeted about the event: “Off to Arkansas with @D8Marko we’re Walmart dancers now”
And Marko tweeted: “In Arkansas with @SashaMallory! This is a beautiful place. Hmmmm…fresh air:):):)” and he shared this fun photo of him and Sasha flying in a private jet: “Currently in a walmart private jet with @SashaMallory Woohoo! Kinda weird but pretty cool! yfrog.com/kgiaylxj”
