An 11-year-old Orpington dancer has made it to the semi-final of Sky 1 talent show Got To Dance.
Holly Spencer, who attends Crofton Junior School, in Town Court Lane, will dance with her group IMD Legion for a place in the final live on Sunday evening at 6pm.
She and the other 19 members will be looking to impress judges Aston Merrygold, of boy band JLS, Kimberley Wyat, of the Pussycat Dolls, and dance group Diversity’s Ashley Banjo.
Formed as an after school club to dispel the myth that dance is a poor career choice, the group auditioned last year and are now one performance away from becoming one of the final 10 acts.
Holly was recently a quarter finalist at the United Dance Organisation’s World Hip Hop Battle and took 2nd place in the under 12s World Championships 2012.
Ahead of the semi-final, she said: “It has been fun performing at lots of schools and shows, and I hope that everyone will be proud of us.”
