Former So You Think You Can Dance choreographer Alex Da Silva has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping a former dance student, reports say.

Da Silva was arrested back in 2009 for a whole host of felonies.

The 43-year-old was charged with sexually assaulting four women, all former dance students of his between the ages of 20 and 26 at the time. Sick.

Da Silva was convicted of one count of rape and one count of assault with intent to rape. The jury deadlocked on the other charges, which were dismissed.

Da Silva appeared on Seasons 1-4 of SYTYCD (above, mentoring now-DWTS pro Chelsie Hightower). He was ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

Fellow one-time SYTYCD mainstay Shane Sparks was also charged with a sex offense recently, pleading guilty to unlawful sex with a minor.

FormerSo You Think You Can Dance choreographer Alex Da Silva was arrested at his N. Hollywood home for allegedly sexually assaulting four women.

If this story sounds familiar, it's that he was arrested in April for ... the exact same thing. Only the District Attorney did not end up pressing charges.

This time, however, Da Silva is facing four counts of forcible rape, two counts of assault with intent to commit rape and to top it off, two counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object. That is pretty serious stuff, to put it mildly.

The D.A. says the alleged assaults occurred between August 2002-March 2009.

The four alleged victims were between the ages of 20-26 and were all dancers or aspiring dancers who say they met Alex through dance classes.
