Melanie Moore was the grand prize winner in the eighth season of the U.S. reality television competition So You Think You Can Dance. According to the results announced on the broadcast, Moore won "overwhelmingly", garnering 47% of the vote in a four-way final tally. At the time of the competition she was a 19-year-old college freshman attending Fordham University at Lincoln Center in New York City. Moore trained and competed for twelve years in Marietta, Georgia at Rhythm Dance Center. Melanie was awarded JUMP Dance Convention's "Senior Female National VIP" in 2010, right before she auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance. Most recently, she can be found dancing with Shaping Sound as a company dancer, and alongside fellow JUMP faculty, Nick and Teddy on Oxygen network’s reality docu-series All the Right Moves.
