Tonight at 9 pm (Monday, June 10th), Langhorne, PA's own, Gianna Newberg, 19, will be competing on the Fox-tv dance reality show, So You Think You Can Dance. How exciting!

The Bucks County Courier Times says she was a 2018 graduate of Villa Joseph Marie High School and went to Elon University in North Carolina until she got the call that she would have the chance to audition for the show. She left school so she could come home and practice for this once in a lifetime chance.

Tonight, she's hoping to begin her journey to win the title of “America’s Favorite Dancer”.  How cool would it be to see a local girl go all the way!?

Gianna has been a fan of the show for years. She's been dancing since she was just two years old, and spent most of her life training at a bunch of different Bucks County dance schools. Most recently, she was on the competitive dance team at CaRu Entertainment in Pennington, NJ, where she spent four hours each day after school, at the studio, training. That's dedication.

Gianna will be performing a contemporary solo on tonight's show, that was choreographed by a local instructor from CaRu Entertainment, Cassie Russo-Sweeney.

 

Good luck, Gianna. PST is rooting for you.
