THREE Bearsden dancers are hoping to make it through to the live semi-finals of a dance competition on Sky TV with a prize of £250,000 up for grabs.
Bearsden Academy pupil Stephanie Taylor (16), and former Bearsden Academy pupils, Lorna Munn (24) and Jaimie MacCrae (18), are part of a team of 17 dancers aged nine to 24 years old called Fear of the Unknown which featured on Sky 1’s Got2Dance contest last week.
The former Baljaffray Primary Pupils, who all attend Robert Hamilton’s Dancepoint Musical Theatre School in Glasgow, made it through to the judges shortlist and will find out on Sunday if they have made it to the live semi-finals.
Thirty successful acts will then be revealed on the second show at 7pm and if they are one of them they will need as many votes as they can to be in with a chance of winning the top prize.
Stephanie said: “I’m so excited to be part of Got2Dance again. I was lucky to have been in The Box, another of Robert’s teams. Two years ago in the first ever series.
“The Box made it all the way to the live finals and finished in the top three acts. It was an amazing experience.
“Now in it’s third series the bar has been raised as the standard is much higher but our team Fear of the Unknown got three gold stars and amazing comments from the three judges, Kimberley Wyatt, Adam Garcia and Ashley Banjo, and we have made it through to the shortlist.
“I can’t wait to find out on Sunday night if we have made it through to the live semi-finals.”
Jaimie said: “We have been working extremely hard for this competition and hope that we have done enough to get into the top thirty acts, who perform live for the public vote.
“If we are lucky enough to make it to the semi-finals, we would appreciate it greatly if everyone could get behind us and vote.”
Lorna said: “The Got2Dance experience has been amazing so far and we don’t want it to end.
“Based on the great comments we got from the judges in our first audition we are hopeful that we will make the live shows.”
