Kalihi-raised breakdancer Mark Villaver ended his run on “So You Think You Can Dance” on Sept. 4.

The Farrington High School graduate left the dance competition in seventh place after earning the least number of viewer votes from his performance last week.

“I enjoyed every moment,” said a visibly shaken Villaver at the end of Monday’s telecast.

Villaver, 27, moved to Los Angeles in 2012, where he’s worked as a professional dancer. Villaver and his partner, “SYTYCD” Season 4 contestant Comfort Fedoke, performed a hip-hop routine with a ninja theme choreographed by Misha Gabriel to Apashe’s “No Twerk” during this week’s episode.

“He’s amazing,” Fedoke said of Villaver during the show. “He’s not just a personality. (He’s) an extremely incredible dance artist.

Villaver’s top 10 finish qualifies him for a spot on a national performance tour featuring contestants from this season’s cast. No Hawaii performances have been announced.

“So You Think You Can Dance,” now in its 14th season, airs 8 p.m. Mondays on Fox.
