Learning disability dance company impress judges on Sky’s Got To Dance


Dancers from a learning disability dance troupe have recently wowed judges on Sky One’s Got To Dance

Young people from Magpie Dance, a dance company in Bromley, Kent, appeared on the talent show in the second round of auditions. 

They impressed judges with their contemporary routine, but did not make the final selection for the live semi-finals. 

Despite this, David Nurse, director of Magpie Dance youth group, said: “I’m really proud of what they did. They worked really hard to get to that level and hopefully raised the bar of what people think groups of young people with learning disabilities can achieve.” 

Each week Magpie Dance hold dance classes for around 200 young people with learning disabilities from London and south-east England.
