Strictly Come Dancing star to judge Norwich competition

There are just three days left for Norfolk's brightest dancing talent to apply for a national competition that is judged by celebrity dancing star Brendan Cole in Norwich next weekend.

The Strictly Come Dancing performer is judging a nationwide competition to find the UK's hottest dance acts at The Forum on Saturday February 26 in association with www.barclayslive.co.uk.

Applications should be uploaded to the website in the form of a short clip of a dance performance, with the competition open to individuals, duos, groups and troupes, although under-16s must be accompanied by an adult on the day.

The top 10 entries will perform live on stage at The Forum ampitheatre and further entertainment on the day will include live music and professional dance performances, as well as a dance masterclass from Mr Cole.

Following the live performances, five of the 10 acts will be picked by the celebrity judging panel to go through to an online public vote, with an �1,000 prize for the chosen winner.
