Phoenix Dancer, Lauren Froderman, Wins "So You Think You Can Dance"

Lauren Froderman took home Fox television's So You Think You Can Dance trophy last night, beating out the remaining male competitors and proving that a girl who just graduated from Greenway High School in Phoenix can definitely kick some national dance competition butt.

She was best known for her flexibility, literally (shown left) and within different dance styles. On the show, she was praised for her skills ranging from hip-hop to ballroom and jazz to Bollywood.

Her fellow competitors Kent Boyd and Robert Roldan came in second and third, respectively. As the show's winner, Froderman will take home $250,000.
