In January 2010, Sky1 HD’s spectacular new dance contest GOT TO DANCE shimmied onto the channel to much fanfare. Edinburgh, Manchester and London played host to auditions where competitors took to the stage in front of an expert, contemporary dance panel consisting of Diversity lead choreographer Ashley Banjo, Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, and Coyote Ugly and West End star Adam Garcia.

Host Davina McCall was on hand to congratulate or comfort those who managed or failed to make the grade. Now they’re all back for a second series that promises to be bigger, bolder and better than ever before.

This time the stakes are higher as the acts compete for the biggest ever talent show prize of £250,000 in front of an even bigger studio audience of 1,200 people.

Davina McCall said, “I'm not sure if it's legal to enjoy my job so much but GOT TO DANCE is my dream show! It just HAD to come back, I'm so glad it has!”

Duncan Gray, Head of Entertainment, Sky1 HD, has commissioned Shine TV and Princess Productions to co-produce the second series of the hugely successful competition. GOT TO DANCE will kick off with a series of nationwide auditions that will see the Dance Domes travelling to locations across the UK. Returning judges Ashley Banjo, Kimberly Wyatt and Adam Garcia will select the best dancers to take part in the spectacular live studio finals, where they will battle it out to win a place in the final and be crowned series champions by the viewing public. This time there will be eight audition shows, and five live shows.

Gray commented: “Sky1 HD is very proud to announce plans to make GOT TO DANCE an even more spectacular must see fixture in the TV calendar. We’re very lucky to be working with such supreme world-class talent on screen and back-stage and everyone can’t wait to see the next generation of dancing talent explode onto the channel in 2011.”

In its first series, GOT TO DANCE crowned 10-year-old street dancer Akai from Kent as its champion. Since winning his £100,000 prize money, Akai has joined the cast of Into the Hoods, London’s street dance musical. Following the grand final, US network CBS announced they had picked up the rights to GOT TO DANCE in order to create a US version of the series.

Production on GOT TO DANCE is scheduled to begin imminently with auditions scheduled for July and August 2010. The series will air in early 2011.

GOT TO DANCE Series Two was commissioned by Duncan Gray, Head of Entertainment, Sky1 HD, who will act as Executive Producer alongside Karen Smith for Shine TV and Henrietta Conrad, Kelly Webb-Lamb, Marion Farrelly and Clodagh O’Donoghue for Princess Productions.
