The Greatest Dancer contestants: Meet the acts through to the callbacks

Here’s a round up of all the The Greatest Dancer contestants through to the callbacks.


Seeing the new year in with style, former Strictly Come Dancing champion and former judge Alesha Dixon and Diversity’s Jordan Banjo host the brand new series, which will contain dramatic auditions, outstanding talent and jaw-dropping surprises as dancers give the performance of their lives.

In The Greatest Dancer, dancers of any age and dance style compete to win £50,000 and a chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing.

Leading the charge to discover The Greatest Dancer are three superstar Dance Captains: multi-platinum-selling singer Cheryl; Broadway and Glee star Matthew Morrison; and Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse.

For the first time, the audience hold the power, if they are impressed by the audition, they will vote to open the mirror, if 75 percent of the audience vote YES, the mirror will open and the dancer will make it through to the next stage of the competition, the callbacks.

From there, the three captains will each pick three acts to mentor in the live final stages.

After the fourth and final week of auditions, the contestants we met through to The Greatest Dancer callbacks are…
