A So You Think You Can Dance choreographer who was accused of sexually assaulting four of his students will not be charged for the crimes because of a lack of evidence, the Los Angeles district attorney’s office told the Associated Press. Police had been investigating allegations that SYTYCD choreographer Alex Da Silva, 41, who also teaches at multiple LA dance studios, had raped four female dance students in his bedroom in 2003, 2004 and 2005. Da Silva was arrested on Saturday, but released from jail on Tuesday. In a chilling quote to the AP, Da Silva’s defense attorney, Harland Braun said that some of Da Silva’s accusers “don’t understand the difference between being seduced and being raped.”
