Utah Symphony | Utah Opera today released the final roster of talent competition television stars scheduled to appear in the upcoming Utah Symphony performances of "Ballroom with a Twist," choreographed by "Dancing with the Stars" Emmy-Nominated Louis Van Amstel.

The show, which opens in Abravanel Hall Friday and Saturday, February 1 and 2 at 8 p.m., will feature dancing and vocals by ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" pros Chelsie Hightower, Dmitry Chaplin and Tristan MacManus, FOX's "American Idol" finalists Gina Glocksen, David Hernandez and Von Smith, and FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance" finalists Randi Lynn Strong, Legacy Perez and Jonathan Platero.

Chelsea Hightower, a fan favorite who, like Dmitry Chaplin, appeared as a finalist on "So You Think You Can Dance" before garnering a recurring 'pro' spot on "Dancing With The Stars," also has Utah ties, along with Randi Lynn Strong. Both female dancers lived in Utah Valley prior to their reality television careers.

Many Utahns will also likely recognize vocalist David Hernandez, who competed against Utah-favorites David Archuleta and Brooke White in season 7 of "American Idol."

More information about the Utah Symphony performances of "Ballroom with a Twist" will be announced after the holiday season.
