Henrietta native Jasmine Harper made it to the finals of this season of Fox reality show So You Think You Can Dance.
On Tuesday, Harper, now 20 years old and living in Georgia, came in second in the battle of the females to Amy Yakima.
The live show recapped the season of dances, showing off how Harper, Yakima, Aaron Turner and DuShaunt “Fik-Shun” Stegall made it to the finals. In the end, one male and one female dancer were standing on the stage. Stegall won the male battle.
Harper grew up in Henrietta, attended Rush-Henrietta schools through middle school and then spent one year in Spencerport before moving with her family to North Carolina.
She’s now a professional dancer in Georgia. Just before leaving to begin filming the show in June, she danced in the music video for “I’m Out,” the new song by pop singer Ciara.
