With the latest series of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing marred by accusations of agism and racism, Sky 1’s new show might just put the fun back into TV dance shows.
Kicking off in Edinburgh this week (Friday 9th October), Just Dance is looking for the UK’s best solo dance acts, dancing duos and talented troupes to compete for prize of £100,000.
Dancers in Edinburgh are invited to join host Davina McCall and the Just Dance judges in Princes St Gardens at the Ross bandstand for the first Dancing in the Streets event. Further events will be held in Manchester and London.
To take part, the public need to go online at www.sky.com/justdance and learn the routine devised by one of the world’s top choreographers, Ashley Wallen. You’ll need to watch the dance demo (see below) then listen to the instruction video.
McCall says “I am so excited that the first rounds of auditions are to be held in Edinburgh, one of my favourite cities. I’m really looking forward to seeing how the Scots do in the dance stakes and of course, I’m hoping a few kilts will be showcased on stage”
Joining McCall are judges Ashley Banjo, Adam Garcia and Kimberly Wyatt.
Just Dance will air on Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD early next year.
