Autism with Attitude are the final contestants on BBC One’s The Greatest Dancer!
The Greatest Dancer auditions draw to a close this weekend, the finalists compete to win £50,000 and a chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing.
Our favourite contestants going through the final round are of course – Autism with Attitude!
AUTISM with Attitude, the street dance group from Hillingdon Manor School, entered the European adventure last year.
The school made history when they qualified as the first special needs dance team to reach the finals of the United Dance Organisations Championships.
Dance teacher Jonathan Baron founded Autism with Attitude in 2013 after students were offered the opportunity to perform in Autism’s Got Talent, a show also set up by Anna Kennedy Online.
Autism’s Got Talent showcases the talents of adults and children with autism. Participants told us that autism is not something to be ashamed of, but is to be celebrated – one described his Asperger’s as ‘like a superpower’.
Autism with Attitude started on Autism’s got Talent – look at them now!
The Greatest Dancer continues at the slightly earlier time of 7:30PM on BBC One this Saturday evening, tune in and enjoy the trailer!
