If you haven’t been watching “So You Think You Can Dance,” it’s about time that you tune in. Amy Yakima, a local from Northville, Michigan, has been stealing the show ever since her first audition in Detroit. Watch her audition below.
As a contemporary dancer, Yakima has BLOWN the crowd away with each and every performance. She is currently in the TOP FOUR and has a DEFINITE chance of winning this season’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” making it farther than any other previous Michigan native in a television competition. Yakima is currently competing against another female dancer from New York for a prize of $125,000. Still, according to the Free Press, Yakima said, “Jasmine is not my competitor. I’m not trying to beat Jasmine. I’m just trying to stay in the game. It comes down to ‘you’ve made it this far.’ Why would you let someone else go for it, when you can go for it, too, and push that other person also?”
The exposure Yakima has received from this show will help her whether she wins or not (but of course we’re all rooting for her.) Make sure you tune in September 10th at 8 P.M. and cheer her on!!
Until next time,Vicky :)
