Wisconsin Dancer in Top 20 on 'So You Think You Can Dance'

Nick Young will compete for America's votes.

Nick Young is living his dream after advancing to the top 20 on "So You Think You Can Dance" on FOX (Channel 6). 

According to a Q&A on the show website, Young started dancing when he was just 4 years old in his mom's dance studio, the . 

He auditioned for the show as a tap dancer, but was able to showcase skills in other styles throughout the try out period.

Young, a Franklin resident, will dance for America's votes starting Wed., June 15 at 7 pm on Channel 6. If he garners enough votes, he will continue onto the next week, and each week he will learn new dance routines in a different style from a variety of choreographers, and possibly with a different partner.

The winner, crowned "America's Favorite Dancer" will win a $250,000 cash prize and a tour around the country with the rest of the Top 10.

Nick is awesome! My girls have danced at his mother's dance studio, Young Dance Academy, in Oak Creek for the last 3 years. We have watched him every year in the recitals and he is an amazing, talented young man. However, seeing him at the studio outside of class, interacting with the other dance students and parents shows that he is also a person of good character. We wish him the best of luck as he continues with the competition on 'So You Think You Can Dance.' REMEMBER TO VOTE NEXT WEEK FOR NICK!!! While you're at it, come to Greendale High School at 7pm tonight, 6/12, 6/13, 6/14, 6/16, 6/17 or 6/18 to watch the rest of the YDA dancers in their recitals. There are many talented young people from Greendale who dance at the studio who will be in the shows. Tickets are only $10 each and open to all!
