Tring Park student to dance for the nation’s votes on TV talent contest tonight
A Tring Park School student will compete to win £250,000 in the final of a TV talent show tonight.
Kaine Ward, 15, will be on the Sky1 HD programme Got To Dance at 6.30pm.
Writing on Twitter yesterday, he said: “Whatever the outcome tomorrow, I’ve had the best time and I’m so grateful of all your support. It truly means the world.”
Kaine is the only soloist dancer left in the competition, and using his ballet and contemporary styles he hopes to take home the top prize.
He was voted into the final by the general public and will perform live for people’s votes against multiple other acts including Original Kids and IMD tonight.
The skilled dancer starred as Billy Elliot at the Victoria Palace Theatre in London from 2011 to 2013.
He performed in Swan Lake at the Royal Albert Hall in 2010 and 2013 and in The Nutcracker at the London Coliseum in 2010 with the English National Ballet.
Kaine has been dancing since he was two and hopes that through his passion he can help encourage other boys to get into dancing.
He said: “My mum thinks I am a perfectionist.”
He won a scholarship to Tring Park School for the Performing Arts five years ago.
During his time on Got to Dance, he has wowed judges Ashley Banjo, Adam Garcia and Kimberly Wyatt and won praise from host of the show Davina McCall.
Ashley performs with street dance group Diversity, while Australian Adam Garcia is an actor and tap dancer and Kimberly is sings, dances and does choreography.
Kimbley was Kaine’s mentor during the show, helping him perfect his dance moves to win the public’s votes.
Writing on social networking website Twitter on Tuesday, she said: “Absolutely beautiful @KaineWard ! The audience are on their feet at #GotToDance #TeamKimberly”
