The Greatest Dancer


The Greatest Dancer is an exciting new dance competition on BBC One, which celebrates dance, with performances from every style you can imagine, from soloists to massive dance troupes, and professionally-trained dancers to amateurs.

During the live auditions, The Greatest Dancer gave the audience the complete control to select the dancers the most worthy of progressing to the next stage.
