NEWS: Ore to present BBC Young Dancer Final 2017

Young Dancer

Four months since the Strictly final, I cannot wait to experience the climax of another prestigious dance competition and watch it change someone else’s life.

In only its second year, BBC Young Dancer provides a nationwide platform for the finest young dancers in the country from the genres of ballet, contemporary, street and South Asian dance. Will I bring my dance shoes? Probably. (always come prepared!)

For someone who recently acquired a love of dance, it’ll be a real honour to share the stage with a group of young people showing the world how talented they are. Keep Dancing, right? Well if you can’t, my advice, just keep watching brilliant dancers who can!

The Strictly connection doesn’t end there… I’m so excited to be presenting alongside the wonderful Anita Rani and to have the one and only Darcey Bussell offering her insight throughout the programme.

Yes there’ll be a little less sparkle and fewer sequins, but you can expect dance inspiration in abundance. We look forward to showcasing Britain’s next big dance talent to you all.

*BBC Young Dancer Final 2017 airs on Saturday 22nd April, LIVE on BBC2 at 8pm. For more information click here.
