Each episode of Amy Dowden’s Dare to Dance (w/t), produced by Cardiff based production company Wildflame, will see an individual or group perform a spectacular dance routine, choreographed by Caerphilly-born Amy, to surprise family and friends.
Behind each dance will be a story: a big life moment or message someone wants to give. It could be someone who wants a unique way to propose, a dancer who feared they’d never dance again or a group of friends who need an unforgettable way to say thanks. No matter if her new student loves to dance or is petrified, Amy’s ready to help them master the routine to blow friends and family away.
Amy previously said: “I’m thrilled to be fronting my own series for BBC Wales. Dance can have such a positive impact on physical and mental health, socialising and self-confidence so it’ll be a privilege to share my passion with people and help them experience their own special moment on the dancefloor. It’s going to be such a joyous and uplifting show and I can’t wait to take people on their own dance journey.”
BBC Wales' head of content commissioning, Nick Andrews previously said: “It’s terrific to have Amy on the channel fronting her own show and genuinely changing lives through dance. She’s beloved by so many and her warmth for people is just the tonic we all need.”
Amy Dowden’s Dare to Dance is available on BBC iPlayer now, with details about the second series to be revealed in due course.
