BBC Young Dancer of the Year

December 2014

I am very excited to be invited as a second round judge for the first year of the BBC Young Dancer competition.

As a parallel endeavour to the BBC's long running Young Musician of the Year competition, this initiative is about high quality dance.

In association with Sadler's Wells and a wide range of experts and judges including Akram Khan, Tamara Rojo and Alistair Spalding to name a few, I am very happy to be apart of a great team championing excellence in dance.

The categories are Ballet, Hip Hop, Contemporary and South Asian (Bharatanatyam/Kathak).

I am looking forward to attending the live performances for the second round of the competition at the mac in Birmingham on Monday 15th December 2015, and finding the 5 special dancers to go through to the next round.
