Fox's Dance finalists include six feet from North Texas

Dance finalists Comfort Fedoke, Joshua Allen, Chelsea Traille

Uniquely named Comfort Fedoke of Carrollton is stepping into Fox's So You Think You Can Dance as one of the summertime reality hit's 20 finalists.

Born in Fort Worth and raised in Laos, Nigeria, the 20-year-old hip-hopper is a graduate of Dallas' Booker T. Washington Performing Arts High School. She's also been a performer on Metro PCS Dance Club 21, shown on Sundays at 10 p.m. on TXA21.

Two other North Texans also are in the show's fourth season foot race for $250 grand and the negotiable title of "America's Favorite Dancer."

Joshua Allen, 19, is a "hip hop/popping" dancer from Fort Worth. Chelsea Traille, a 23-year-old Houstonian now living in Flower Mound, specializes in jazz funk and contemporary dance. She also hit hardwoods as a member of the 2006-07 Dallas Mavericks dancers and has a bachelor's degree in business administration/marketing from the University of Texas at Dallas.

Wednesday's first Dance performance show (7 to 9 p.m. locally on Fox4) will lead to Thursday's opening eliminations of a male and female dancer.
