so you think you can dance season 5

I haven't really been watching the current season of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance, but I'm told that last week, they revealed the competition's Top 20 Finalists. Some contestants you might want to keep an eye on:

Garcia is a graduate of New York University. Her early dance experience included learning traditional Filipino folk dancing. Garcia performed on Broadway in "Hot Feet," danced in the ensemble of the "Radio City Christmas Spectacular" and went on to tour with "Wicked." She is a member of "Boogie Bots Crew."
