The Greatest Dancer is a brand new dance competition coming soon to BBC One.

And auditions for the first ever series are now open, with try outs taking place over the summer.

The show is looking for soloists, duos and groups to take on the performance of a lifetime and show their dance talent to the nation.

The Greatest Dancer is an exciting new dance competition for BBC One from the makers of The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent.

The show is looking for all dance styles to take part in the show.

The BBC say: "Whether you are a professionally trained dancer, or someone who likes to have a boogie on the dance floor on a Saturday night... the auditions are coming to you. Come along and see our team at various locations across the UK to be in with a chance to compete for £50,000!"

Auditions will be held across the UK over the next month in Glasgow, Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Belfast.

You don't need to book a slot, just arrive between the set times. Auditions will be reviewed by senior producers who will select which acts will make the next stage of the competition.

Entrants must be seven years old and above and have the right to live and work in the United Kingdom. Any applicant aged 17 and under must get the permission of a parent or legal guardian and must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the audition.
