Taking the Next Step

CBBC's brand new dance talent show follows young UK dancers as they audition for the opportunity of a lifetime - the chance to win an amazing guest role in the hit dance show, The Next Step

Presented by Blue Peter's Lindsey Russell, the series' judging panel is made up of three industry experts: Pussy Cat Dolls singer and professional dancer Kimberly Wyatt, Eastenders and West End actor John Patridge, and choreographer to the stars, Simeon Qysea.

Hoping to impress the three judges, 250 dancers made it through to the Regional Auditions in Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester and London, with the successful candidates going forward to attend National Auditions.

Follow the fun, yet challenging process, putting dance and acting abilities to the test, as six are finally selected to travel to Canada and continue the selection process, moving even closer to The Next Step dream! Only one can achieve the ultimate goal and be chosen for the coveted guest role on The Next Step, season four on CBBC.
