Now, Wayne Sleep has made a television programme to encourage larger girls to put their dancing shoes back on.

“I’m doing a Channel 4 series called Big Ballet,” says Sleep, who was a principal dancer with the Royal Ballet. It’s about big girls who were told at 10 to give up, as why would you stop a child dancing?”

Darcey Bussell joins the judges for the Genee competition:

Now 44 and a mother-of-two, as well as a CBE and president of the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), she very obviously learned to love dance and it remains a passion she is intent on sharing.

 

It is one of the reasons she is so delighted to have joined Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood on the judging panel of Strictly.

It is also why, after the last sequins are attached to costumes and the final dash of glitter is applied behind the scenes for the new series of Strictly, she is heading to Glasgow for the Genée International Ballet Competition.
