So You Think You Can Dance
Name: Gaby Diaz

Do you have any formal training? I've trained in Tap my whole life and I've trained in Classical Ballet and Modern.
Who would be your dream choreographer? I'm looking forward to hopefully working with Christopher Scott.
Who would be your dream Alumni SYTYCD partner? My dream dance partner would be Aaron Turner.
Which dancer from another season were you most inspired by? I am most inspired by Travis Wall because of how his work ethic led him to achieve so much success on the show and after.
What was your reaction to making the Top 20: My first reaction was to ask if they were serious because I couldn't believe this was actually happening to me after having been a fan of the show for so many years.
What would people be most surprised to learn about you? People would be surprised to learn that I am extremely terrified of ET, the alien, and have never been able to finish the movie!
