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.

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 !
