This year, top television judge Arlene Phillips heads a world-class panel at this year’s The Dance Show to decide who should be crowned the Young Dancer of the Year 2010
The most exciting dance event to hit the UK, The Dance Show announces So You Think You Can Dance judge Arlene Phillips as the head judge for their brand new national dance award – Young Dancer of the Year – sponsored by Spotlight and supported by Dancers Inc, DanceXchange and The Council for Dance Education and Training (CDET)
Arlene has a wealth of dancing knowledge, making her the ideal candidate to decide who should be given this prestigious award. Arlene began her career as a jazz dancer before going on to choreograph a host of iconic Broadway and West End shows including Flashdance, Grease, Saturday Night Fever, We Will Rock You and Starlight Express.
Arlene Phillips said of her appointment as the lead judge on the judging panel: ‘‘It is such an honour to be the head judge at the first ever Young Dancer of the Year. I can’t wait to see the wealth of talent that will be gracing the stage. There is going to be such a variety of dancing styles and we will hopefully find someone with that ‘special something’ that will go on to be the next big thing in dance.’’
The Dance Show is set to be the most exciting and interactive live dance show in the UK and will run alongside the UK’s most popular fashion and beauty event, Clothes Show Live, from 3-5 December at Birmingham’s NEC.
