TORONTO -- MuchMusic VJ Leah Miller's time in the dance studio has paid off.
The bubbly MuchOnDemand personality, who took "baby ballet" when she was 3 and later learned tap, hip hop, lyrical and jazz movements, was announced as host of the inaugural So You Think You Can Dance Canada show yesterday.
The hot-stepping competition will start airing on CTV in the fall, and network executives cited Miller's knowledge of dance as one of the reasons she was chosen.
"Immediately I started bawling and my mascara ran everywhere," the 26-year-old said of her reaction to the news two weeks ago. She was told over the phone shortly after shooting a segment for MuchOnDemand but had to keep it a secret.
