CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A local dancer earned a trip to Hollywood after making it through auditions on So You Think You Can Dance.

Cincinnati resident Kelly MacCoy, 18, was given the ticket to Hollywood after completing a jazz routine in an episode that aired last week .

Before she danced, a piece was shown about her parents, who were also entertainers. Her mother, Jackie Lynn MacCoy, was a guest entertainer on The Love Boat TV show and her father, Dave MacCoy, was a singer featured on Bob Braun's TV program.

The judges commented on her routine, saying she showed confidence and great technique.

The episode last Wednesday concluded the audition tour for the show. Selected dancers will now have callbacks in Los Angeles, where judges will pick the top 20 performers.

The next episode airs Wednesday, June 25 at 8 p.m.
