In January 2010, Sky1 HD’s spectacular new dance contest GOT TO DANCE shimmied onto the channel to much fanfare. Edinburgh, Manchester and London played host to auditions where competitors took to the stage in front of an expert, contemporary dance panel consisting of Diversity lead choreographer Ashley Banjo, Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, and Coyote Ugly and West End star Adam Garcia. Host Davina McCall was on hand to congratulate or comfort those who managed or failed to make the grade. Now they’re all back for a second series that promises to be bigger, bolder and better than ever before. This time the stakes are higher as the acts compete for the biggest ever talent show prize of £250,000 in front of an even bigger studio audience of 1,200 people.
Davina McCall said, “I’m not sure if it’s legal to enjoy my job so much but GOT TO DANCE is my dream show! It just HAD to come back, I’m so glad it has!”
Duncan Gray, Head of Entertainment, Sky1 HD, has commissioned Shine TV and Princess Productions to co-produce the second series of the hugely successful competition. We want anyone and everyone to come and audition, whether your 4 or 84. Returning judges Ashley Banjo, Kimberly Wyatt and Adam Garcia will select the best dancers to take part in the spectacular live studio finals, where they will battle it out to win a place in the final and be crowned series champions by the viewing public. This time there will be eight audition shows, and five live shows.
Gray commented: “Sky1 HD is very proud to announce plans to make GOT TO DANCE an even more spectacular must see fixture in the TV calendar. We’re very lucky to be working with such supreme world-class talent on screen and back-stage and everyone can’t wait to see the next generation of dancing talent explode onto the channel in 2011.”
