Eliana Girard: Pole Dancing Ballerina on So You Think You Can Dance

by at . Comments

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a So You Think You Can Dance winner!

Okay, maybe not. But Eliana Girard made quite the impression on SYTYCD viewers and judges last night, the latter of whom included Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

A former "pole aerialist" for Cirque du Soleil (dubbed a "pole dancing ballerina" by Nigel Lythgoe in a Tweet), Girard combined classical ballet training with the kinds of moves many men only see during bachelor parties. It was a unique, impressive audition and it earned a comparison to Season 8 champ Melanie Moore.

"I already love you so much," said Ferguson. "You have a quality Melanie had last year. She could just draw you in by just being. It was in her pores. You've got it."

Among other impressive SYTYCD auditions so far: Shafeek Westbrook and Bree Hafen.
