We’re thrilled to announce the 20 finalists for the first ever ‘Into the Spotlight’ Dance Competition.

We’ve seen an incredible response to our monologue competitions over the years, so this time we wanted to showcase a new skill: dancing!

The first ever Into the Spotlight: Dance Competition was exclusive to our Spotlight Graduate members, but we’ll have another competition for all members coming soon!

We were blown away by the talented entries we saw, and the Spotlight team has now watched every submission and selected 20 finalists. These finalists are currently being watched by our esteemed panel of judges, who will select a winner from among them.

The Judges are:

  • Will Burton – casting director (In the Heights, Matilda, Jesus Christ Superstar)
  • David Grindrod – casting director (The Phantom of the Opera, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
  • Carrie-Anne Ingrouille – choreographer (Six, Hamilton)
  • Stephen Mear – dancer/choreographer (Mary Poppins, The Little Mermaid)

A huge thank you to everyone who entered, and a massive congratulations to our 20 finalists! 

Without further ado, here are the finalists of the Into the Spotlight: Dance competition. You can watch the chosen entries through the links below:
