Jun 15 2024

Allison Holker found herself at a crossroads this year, nearly two years after the devastating loss of her husband, Stephen "tWitch" Boss, in December 2022. The professional dancer, mother of three, and former "So You Think You Can Dance" star has been on a profound journey of self-discovery, healing, and resilience.

Putting her family first for the past couple of years, Holker shared with People that she is now open to the idea of dating again, ready to explore a new chapter in her life and rediscover who she is at her core. "Not even being a mother, not a career mom, not the trauma, not the once wife, but who am I? Just as me and my character — what I believe in, what I stand for," Holker expressed.

Reflecting on her growth since the tragic loss of her husband, Holker acknowledged that she has evolved significantly and is prepared to welcome new experiences, including the possibility of love. "I'm just trying to embrace [the growth] and see what my next steps are with [my] career, with [my] choices, and with dating," she shared.

Despite enduring immense challenges, Holker remains a firm believer in living life to the fullest and finding ways to infuse romance and adventure into everyday moments. "I still would want to have love, would still want to travel the world," she emphasized. "I still want to see and experience new things with new people, new energy, my friends, my family, a loved one — a potential — and my kids."

As she navigates this new chapter, Holker is determined to impart valuable lessons to her three children — Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia — teaching them about resilience, trust, and the enduring power of love even in the face of tragedy. "I want them to see that they can still learn to trust and love again," she expressed.

The love story between Holker and Boss began during Season 7 of "So You Think You Can Dance," blossoming into a beautiful partnership that led to marriage and the joy of parenthood. However, their world was shattered in late 2022 when Boss tragically took his own life at the age of 40.

In a poignant interview with Hoda Kotb, Holker bravely shared the challenges of explaining the loss to her children, highlighting the importance of open communication in navigating grief and healing as a family. She recounted the heart-wrenching moments when her children asked when their father would return, emphasizing the complexities of processing loss at such a young age.

While the pain of loss remains a constant presence, Holker finds solace in the belief that Boss is watching over them from the stars, a comforting thought that allows her children to feel connected to their father in a unique way. She continues to navigate the complexities of grief, resilience, and rebuilding a life filled with love and hope.

Despite the absence of a will, Holker was granted half of Boss's estate, a testament to their enduring bond and commitment to each other. As she forges ahead on her journey of healing and rediscovery, Holker's story serves as a powerful reminder of the resilience of the human spirit and the transformative power of love in the face of adversity.

As Allison Holker embraces the possibility of love once more, she invites us to witness her journey of healing, growth, and rediscovery, proving that even in the darkest of times, the human spirit has the capacity to rise, heal, and love again.
