Local Dancer a Top 10 on Hit FOX Show

Hayley Erbert, from Topeka who studies in North Kansas City, will be touring with the show in the coming weeks.

UPDATE: Even though Haley teamed up for some extremely impressive dances with two different All-Stars, it just wasn’t enough to keep her in the competition and she was sent home. KC Magazine will try and follow up with our hometown dance hero to find out what she has planned next. No doubt it will be exciting!

Hayley Erbert, an 18-year-old dancer, is having great success on the FOX TV show “So You Think You Can Dance.” Hayley is a native of Topeka, Kansas and studies at Priscilla & Dana’s School of Dance in North Kansas City.

She was selected out of thousands of dancers after auditioning in Austin, Texas. Hayley has performed contemporary, jazz, samba, tango, Broadway and hip-hop routines and is receiving a high amount of praise each week. Last week, she made the ‘Top 10,’ and will embark on 42-city tour with the show this fall. The show continues until there is one winner.

Hayley has trained at Priscilla & Dana’s for six years, driving 90 minutes each way from her home in Topeka.

“So You Think You Can Dance” airs on Tuesday evenings on FOX from 7:00-9:00pm.
