BBC Young Dancers will see participants aged between 16-20 competing in Hip Hop, South Asian, Contemporary and Ballet. The Riverfront, Newport, South Wales between the 19–22 March 2015, with the final taking part on May 9th at Sadler’s Wells, London, the show will be broadcast live on BBC 2. There is however no mention of the contest leading to Eurovision Young Dancers, but the timescale for the final gives a significant window with the EYD final on June 19th, 2015.
