A HIP-HOP tap group will compete in this year’s Got To Dance live shows after impressing judges Aston Merrygold, Kimberly Wyatt and Ashley Banjo.
The Pulse Collective, featuring Sian Tust from Merseyside, made it through to the Sky1 show’s final 30.
The 10 dancers, who formed in summer 2012, have their semi-final performance tomorrow.
Sian, 22, said: “We’ve got a second chance to impress so we’ve taken the routine we did in our first audition to Bombs Away by B.o.B and changed it up and created something that’s never been seen before.
“It’s going to be exciting to watch. Tap can seem a bit dated and traditional, especially to younger kids.
“So we’ve mixed it up with hip-hop and put together new styles you wouldn’t normally put with tap.
“The audition was terrifying. You never know how it’s going to be perceived, the judges could have said it wasn’t working or that they didn’t think we should mix the two styles.
“We had been watching backstage for such a long time so it felt so surreal. But luckily it did go really well.
“The audience went crazy and we had some brilliant comments. Kimberly said it was the most successful thing she had seen on Got To Dance yet.”
