Second year student in BBC Young Dancer 2017

Joshua Attwood, one of London Contemporary Dance School's second year undergraduate students is taking part in this year's BBC Young Dancer. You can see him performing in the trailer above and in the Contemporary final this Friday at 8pm on BBC4.

BBC Young Dancer is for dancers aged 16-21 across four categories - ballet, contemporary, street dance and South Asian dance. The contemporary final features five dancers as they progress through the competition with highlights of their performances at The Lowry, Salford, in front of a judging panel boasting three of the country's top dance experts: Sharon Watson, artistic director of Leeds-based Phoenix Dance; Mark Bruce, award-winning dancer and choreographer and artistic director of the Mark Bruce Company; and judging across all four BBC Young Dancer categories, the critically acclaimed choreographer and dance producer, Shobana Jeyasingh.
