Lethbridge dancer wins competition

Tara-Jean Popowich of Lethbridge has won the second season of So You Think You Can Dance Canada.

TORONTO — Tara-Jean Popowich of Lethbridge has won the second season of So You Think You Can Dance Canada.

The 20-year-old earned the most viewer votes to nab the $100,000 grand prize and a brand new car in Sunday night’s finale on CTV.

Popowich specializes in contemporary dance and was touted as one of the frontrunners going into the finale.

Judges said she had “star quality” but was also humble and could touch people’s emotions with her moves.

The announcement of the winner was accompanied by some sombre news as host Leah Miller revealed that guest choreographer Mia Michaels was in a Toronto hospital with a “serious back injury.”
