The Greatest Dancer recap!

Dynamic Dads

Dynamic Dads are made up of seven fathers with various jobs. They surprised everyone with a street routine to Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. After a successful audition, they told the judges they hoped to spend the £50,000 on a dance studio for their children.




The only boy in his dance school, 9-year-old Fionn got into performing after watching Frozen at the cinema. For his audition, he performed a contemporary routine to Take That’s Rule The World, getting through to the next round.



Mindtrick (aka Matthew) performed a street routine inspired by a fly, which confused a fair few in the audience including judge Cheryl. Mindtrick’s dance to White Noise by Disclosure didn’t quite manage to warm up the audience, scoring 69% of the crowd’s vote.



Company Jinks

Dance group Company Jinks performed a commerical-contemporary fusion routine to Believer by Imagine by Imagine Dragons. The performance secured them more than 75% of the audience vote, seeing the group through to the callbacks.


Afro Queens

Afro Queens are an all women Afro Dance group. Their non-stop routine to Mawa Nya by Serge Beynaud sadly didn’t entice the audience to hit their buzzers, with only 69% voting to open the mirror.



JSD Minis

JSD Minis are an all girl dance group who describe themselves like family. They danced a Modern Jazz routine to Proud Mary by Tina Turner and easily made the callbacks with the upbeat audition.


Mark Short

53-year-old Mark Short has been dancing since he was a young boy and wanted to prove he could still “kick it”. He previously danced with Tina Turner but has a more unusual claim to fame: He was one of the Bananas in Pyjamas. Dancing a Jazz routine to Canned Heat by Jamiroquai, Mark only managed to impress 71% of the audience.


Chris Fonseca

28-year-old Chris lost is hearing as a result of meningitis when he was young. Using a hearing aid which helps him pick up vibrations, Chris performed a Street routine to Drake’s God’s Plan and made it through.



Globe Girls

The Globe Girls are a five piece drag group who brought a circus themed routine to the stage to a medley of pop diva tunes including the likes of Britney Spears, Ariana Grande and The Greatest Dancer’s own Cheryl. Although it was a close one, they made it through to the callbacks.



The Greatest Dancer continues Saturday nights on BBC One.
