Alex Da Silva, a dancer, choreographer and teacher who has appeared on the Fox television show “So You Think You Can Dance,” was arrested in Hollywood on Saturday on suspicion of raping four dance students.
Da Silva is alleged to have lured several female students to his homes in California in 2003, 2004 and 2005, then used a ruse to get them into his bedroom before raping them. Those three women did not file charges. However, on March 28, another said he raped her which caused prosecutors to re-open the prior cases.
He is being held on a $3.8 million bond.
