The audience can expect to see the group perform some of their winning, show-stopping routines from the TV show, as well as some new and exciting songs – including their debut single ‘Dancing In Repeat’.
Claire, Marcquelle, Marie, Phoenix and Rana, who were mentored by dancer and choreographer Bruno Tonioli, won the viewers’ votes on Saturday 25th August in the thrilling final show.
Bruno was ecstatic to see his team win. “"I am so happy for them, they really deserve to win. They have so much talent and they are going to get even better in the future."
Rana summed up the group’s reaction to their win “to have won this competition, to be releasing a single and to be performing on the tour…..it shows that dreams really do come true.”
