Week One: Vale make queuing exciting in their dance performance

It was week one of The Greatest Dancer live shows and representing Squad Oti, Vale took on the queuing challenge. They danced to Arrival of the Birds by the Cinematic Orchestra. The show was themed the “Best of British” and Eleanor; our Xaverian girl and her team, did an amazing job of rising to the challenge and went down well with the studio audience. Their success means that Vale grow through to next week where there will be another double elimination! Our inside sources say that Vale are really excited about week two and have an even better performance lined up than week one! We can’t wait! Check below to see week one’s dance routine.

Auditions: Good Luck Eleanor! 

Xaverian couldn’t be more pleased to support Law, PE and Sociology student Eleanor Norton-Bailey a she embarks on a once in a life time challenge by competing in BBC’s The Greatest Dancer.

The Greatest Dancer sees previously undiscovered dance acts perform live weekly for Cheryl, Oti Mabuse, Matthew Morrison and Todrick Hall (the “Dance Captains”) and a studio audience in a competition to win £50,000 and a chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing.

Eleanor is part of a 16 strong dance group based in Stockport who successfully secured a place to the call backs earlier this month. At the call backs “Vale” secured a place on team Oti and will compete in the first of the live shows this Saturday!
