If Susie Garcia has her way, she'll be putting Miami on the map for its dancing and not just its sexy vibe.

The Miami Heat dancer and Ronald Reagan High School dance teacher will be one of 20 dancers competing Wednesday night on So You Think You Can Dance (8 p.m., WSVN-Fox 7).

The only Latina in the mix (she's Cuban), the 25-year-old believes Miami gets a bad rap when it comes to being a spot for talented dancers.

''You hear about dancers from New York and Chicago and L.A., but in Miami we have great dancers. We have a different style here in Miami, and I am hoping people see that and I represent that,'' Garcia said.

But if she wants to represent it past Wednesday night, she'll have to be voted onto next week's show. She'll find out Thursday when the results are announced.
