LOS ANGELES — ‘So You Think You Can Dance‘ is getting some new moves.

The Fox network said Monday that multiple changes are planned for the dance competition’s upcoming seventh season.

The series is narrowing the finalist field from 20 dancers to 10 – five women, five men – with one contestant eliminated each week instead of two. Dancers will also be partnered with past contestants instead of each other for the first time. ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ is scheduled to premiere May 27.

Krump dancer Russell Ferguson won the sixth season’s $250,000 grand prize.
