HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Taylor Sieve danced her way through most of the competition on the American television series “So You Think You Can Dance,” but came up just short in the end.

The Maple Grove 19-year-old with Worthington ties was crowned third during the Sept. 25 Season 14 live finale in Hollywood.

Sieve is the daughter of Bryan and Lisa Sieve of Maple Grove and the granddaughter of John and Ruth Sieve of Worthington.

Sieve’s dancing career with “So You Think You Can Dance” isn’t over. It was back to rehearsal the morning following the Monday night finale for Sieve and nine other dancers who comprise the top 10. The dancers will return to the stage Oct. 5 and tour the nation through Nov. 19.

Sieve was not able to be reached for comment before publication, but had earlier expressed her gratitude for the opportunity.

“The whole process has been very eye-opening and unlike anything I’ve ever done in my dance career,” Sieve said in August. “This show is a huge stepping stone in my dance career and it’s an amazing platform for dancers, and anybody that gets an opportunity is extremely fortunate.”
