A man who learned to dance at classes in Bourne hopes to make his mark in front of the nation as he takes part in a TV talent show.
Freddie Huddleston, 24, will try to impress the judges in the first episode of Got To Dance, which airs on Sky 1 at 8pm tomorrow.
Freddie, who specialises in American tap, is originally from Corby Glen and learned his first moves at the Bourne to Dance classes run by Denise Delieu.
His short career so far has involved teaching and touring shows. But appearing on Got To Dance could be a big step on the road to bigger stages for Freddie.
He said: “I just decided to have a go at it. I’d never done anything like it before. It was quite out of the blue.”
Freddie made it through the initial auditions to face the judging panel, comprising Ashley Banjo of dance troupe Diversity, West End star Adam Garcia and former Pussycat Dolls member Kimberly Wyatt.
And on Saturday viewers will find out what the judges thought of Freddie’s routine.
“It’s like anything - you put yourself out there and don’t know if you are going to do well,” he said. “It was nerve-racking but nice to know that they like what you do.
“It was really amazing to see the judges, especially because they are not just celebrities. They are really good dancers.”
Denise Delieu, who runs Bourne To Dance, still remembers teaching Freddie more than 10 years ago. She said: “Even from a very young age he was very rhythmical. He was amazing with his feet.”
Freddie still comes to Bourne to teach classes.
