Maple Grove graduate rises to the top on 'So You Think You Can Dance'

Taylor Sieve has made it to the final 4.

A Minnesota native is one of the favorites on this season of So You Think You Can Dance.

Maple Grove graduate Taylor Sieve has been steadily rising to the top of Fox's hit TV show, which is nearing the end of its 14th season. 

Last month Sieve made it to the top 10, where the remaining dancers are paired with "all-stars" for their performances going forward. Sieve danced her way through four more weeks with her all-star partner Robert Roldan, before facing the judges as part of the top six on Monday night.

(Viewers vote to determine which contestants will be eliminated each week until the winner is named America’s Favorite Dancer on the season finale.)

Going a bit "animalistic" in her performance paid off for the 19-year-old. After Sieve and Roldan's performance, judge Mary Murphy said: "Taylor, you are a star." 

Two other dancers were eliminated, earning Sieve a spot in the final four.

Sieve's interpretive dance was called “Divide and Confluence Between Two Creatures and Their Outward Appearances," Entertainment Weekly says.

Sieve has dreamed of being a dancer since she was a little girl, Fox says

She was named "Dancer of the Year" at the Larkin Dance Studio in Maplewood last year, before moving to L.A. to pursue a professional career.

"Wow, I truly can't believe it. TOP 4?! I feel so incredibly thankful to be here with these amazing dancers and people," Sieve wrote in an Instagram post. "I hope you have all been enjoying my journey on @danceonfox because I have learned more about myself than I ever have before in this process." 

The finale of "So You Think You Can Dance" begins Monday night on Fox at 7 p.m.
