SYLVANIA, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Sylvania teen Tyrone Cobham auditioned for the tenth and current season of So You Think You Can Dance, and made it through the first round.

A watch party was held at Daryl Jarvis Dance Studio Wednesday night to support 19-year-old Cobham on the show.

His friends and family, instructors and fellow dancers all met at the studio to watch Cobham's audition and cheer him on.

 "I'm very proud of him," said Jennifer Shubeta-Harris, owner of the Daryl Jarvis Studio. "This whole studio is proud of him."

Cobham has been dancing for more than 10 years, and his instructors say he is incredibly talented. He has been recognized at dance competitions, receiving a perfect score two years in a row. Now he has the chance of a lifetime to be nationally recognized for his talent.

"I think he's excited," Shubeta-Harris said. "He's kind of laid back, he's a very humble kid…He doesn't show it too much. But he's always in here, he's in here every second that he can, practicing, rehearsing, trying to get inspired…He has a great passion for it."
