A Norwich teenager is one half of a dance duo hoping to wow judges in the auditions for the fourth series of TV programme Got To Dance.
Luke Miller, 16, from Costessey, and Hanna Cresswell, 15, from Reading, have been training hard to face their competitors in the episode which will be shown on Sunday.
The Latin and ballroom pair have been dancing together for five years, and despite the distance between them they still manage to travel to Norwich and London to rehearse their performance.
Luke, who dances at the Miller Dance Centre off Drayton Road, said he was excited about appearing on the show.
“It will be really exciting seeing the show. I haven’t actually seen it yet,” he said.
Viewers will see him and Hanna dance the pasa doble to a song from Pirates of the Carribean, and while Luke already knows whether they go through to the next round, he said viewers would have to watch the show to find out. If Luke and Hanna pass their audition, they will have the chance to be selected for the judges’ final 30 and subsequently compete in the live shows to win the £250,000 cash prize.
Luke added: “It’s really fun. We have done a couple of TV things before. It is a quite a good experience doing them.”
Luke and Hanna’s performance will feature in Got To Dance on Sunday, February 3 at 6pm on Sky1 HD.
