BBC young dancer 2017

Recommended Posts

Just thought I would open a new topic on the 2017 BBC young dancer competition. I am starting to hear of dancers who have been selected for the classical final. Also waiting to hear about a couple of the contemporary competitors. Hoping that this competition will continue to develop and attract high level competitors.

I've heard today that one girl from Elmhurst US made it to finals! Many congratulations to her!

And a very lovely dancer she is too!

Yes, the two from balet west are beautiful and there was another girl from ballet west who made it into the classical semi finals. There's also a boy from Central who did the contemporary semi finals x

How many do they take into the finals, I watched it last time but can't remember.

"They will be 2 of the 5 Dancers selected from the whole of the UK" according to BW press release.   :wub:

Five dancers have been selected for each category - the Ballet West students are 2 of the 5 from the ballet category. In the Grand Final there will be the winner from each category plus up to 2 wild cards - last year there were 2 and one of them, Connor Scott from Dance City CAT (now at Rambert) won the competition.

I watched the ballet and contemporary semi finals this week at Dance East and had a lovely time. I would have loved to watch the South Asian category as I really enjoyed that last year on the TV, but was a fair distance to travel (think I'll avoid the Street dance, not my thing).

Best of luck to them all !

One of the two Ballet West students into the Classical Ballet final used to go to both the same academic and local dance school as my DD. We're very excited!!
