BBC New Talent is to host a 90 minute dance extravaganza in Trafalgar Square on 22 July as part of Big Dance – a week-long celebration of dance taking place in cities across the UK.
There are dance workshops in six venues across the country. In each venue, the best dancers will be invited back for a master class with Anton Du Beke from Strictly Come Dancing. One dancer from each location will then be chosen to star in Dancing in the Street.
The six chosen dancers will be whisked off to London on 19 July for two days of rehearsals with their own Strictly Come Dancing dance partner from the series including Erin Bogue, Andrew Cuerdon, Hanna Haarala, Nicole Cutler and Matthew Cutler.
Du Beke says “Dancing for an audience of millions live on BBC ONE is a wonderful experience.
“I hope we’re going to find some undiscovered talents so we can give a spectacular ballroom performance on stage in Trafalgar Square.”
