The Greatest Dancer | Format

Weeks 1-4
Auditions

The first four episodes of the series sees dancers, from ages seven upwards, performing any dance style they choose, and travel to The Greatest Dancer studio in their bid to impress the audience, get that all important 75 percent of the audience vote and open the mirror wall.

Also watching from behind the mirror are the three Dance Captains Oti Mabuse, Matthew Morrison and Cheryl.

Whilst the Dance Captains don’t get to vote, they are watching everything and will be offering their feedback too.

Once the auditions are complete, it is time for the call backs as the Dance Captains have the difficult task of choosing just nine of the dancers they would like to mentor onto the next stage of the competition – the live challenge shows.

Weeks 5–7
Live Challenge Shows

At this stage, the show goes LIVE for the first time.

Every week each of the dancers are set a challenge that they must take on with their Dance Captain to create a performance that will impress the viewers at home and keep them in the competition.

Week 8
The Live Grand Final

The remaining acts will all perform before the voting lines open once again as viewers at home get to choose who they want to be named The Greatest Dancer, win £50,000 and perform as a very special guest on Strictly Come Dancing.
