New dancing contest program
A new dancing competition series Taking the Next Step has aired on CBBC on June 13, 2016. It`s produced by the in-house CBBC Productions team based on the hit reality-style teen drama The Next Step. Young performers audition in front of a three-judge panel – an ex-Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, West End and TV performer John Partridge, and Simeon Qsyea - a choreographer and professional dancer. Lindsay Russell (Blue Peter) is the presenter.
The Next Step is a hit with the audience, and the prize received by the future champion of Taking the Next Step is appropriate – a guest role on the fourth season of the original series. Over 1300 applicants uploaded their videos for the first stage of the selection process – the regional auditions, and after several rounds only 6 will travel to Canada in order to continue. The six lucky ones will meet the cast of The Next Step and participate in challenges right on the set of their favorite show.
Current season and chances of renewal
Considering the great popularity of The Next Step and its dance troupe, it is easy to predict that the related contest will also attract a good number of loyal fans. Viewers have an opportunity to follow every step of the process, which means a special behind-the-scenes look at their favorite reality-style drama The Next Step as well. Whether enough audience will carry over from the original show to make a renewal of Taking the Next Step viable still remains to be seen, so enjoy the first series and we`ll be sure to inform you as soon as any news of the contest show`s future becomes clear.
