Lindsay tried out for the television program “So You Think You Can Dance” while still in high school.

Despite being ultimately ousted from the competition, she managed to capture the judges’ and millions of viewers’ hearts.

Thanks to her participation in “So You Think You Can Dance,” she was now extremely well-known.

Sadly, Victor and Lindsay were fired in the sixth week. She returned to the show’s second season and once more made an impression with several outstanding performances. She kept taking part all the way through the 25th season. She was acknowledged as a professional dancer and partnered with a celebrity in every season she took part in.
