Posted on: 9/14/2018 2:08PM

So You Think You Can Dance This week, the 15-time Emmy Award-winning show So You Think You Can Dance presented the finale for Season 15, wrapping up another summer season of exceptional dance with America crowning one lucky competitor as their new favorite dancer. And the winner is… Hannahlei Cabanilla! 

 

Hannahlei Cabanilla beat out the other Top 4 contestants—Jensen Arnold, Genessy Castillo and Slavik Pustovoytov—to take home a $250,000 cash prize! Noteworthy was that for the first time SYTYCD had an all-female Top 3 since Slavik came in last (fourth) place. Watch Hannahlei find out she won below.

 

As announced on Fox, So You Think You Can Dance Live! will soon be hitting the road to perform in 38 cities, giving fans a chance to see live performances by Hannahlei and the other Top 10 contestants, including Jensen, Genessy, Slavik, Evan DeBenedetto, Jay Jay Dixonbey, Magdalena Fialek, Darius Hickman, Chelsea Hough and Cole Mills.

 

SYTYCD has also added two beloved All-Stars to its blockbuster annual tour, Lauren Froderman and Cyrus “Glitch” Spencer. Froderman, the winner of the 7th season of SYTYCD, has danced with the Radio City Rockettes, Big Time Rush, Blake McGrath and others. She’s the first dance athlete for Gatorade and the female dance athlete for the G Series Fit line. Glitch was runner-up on Season 9. Since then, he has not stopped working in the industry, performing all-across the country, shooting commercials and feature films.

 

So You Think You Can Dance Fans of SYTYCD can witness the hottest show-stopping routines from Season 15 as well as original pieces choreographed specifically for this live tour. Industrial Media’s 19 Entertainment and dick clark productions will present audiences across the country with many surprises, and promises to be an unforgettable night of dance by some of the world’s most talented performers up-close-and-personal, boldly transporting the small screen experience, enjoyed by millions, to the stage.
