SALT LAKE CITY - Utah has a reputation of having some of the nation's best dancers, and now the state is getting even more attention.

FOX's So You Think You Can Dance has featured several local finalists, including two Utah County girls in this season's top 20.

Local national champions say their dance strength comes from strength of family.

"I think its just because we're raised in our big families and our parents just teach us to be really dedicated and to just stick to what we really love to do and to just be passionate," said one Utah dancer.
