A DANCING duo showcased their skills on the latest series of The Greatest Dancer and say it would be a "dream come true" to make it through to the live finals.

Travis Bussell, 22, and Ross Robertson, 19, who attend dance group Shake in Ringwood, opened the BBC One show on Saturday with their energetic and comedic street dance routine demonstrating tricks and flips.

Watching the dancers and their every move from behind the mirror are the four dance captains Cheryl, Matthew Morrison, Oti Mabuse and Todrick Hall.

But it is the audience who holds the power and vote to open the mirror. If 75 percent of the audience vote yes, the mirror will open and the dancer will make it through to the next stage of the competition.

Ross and Travis were excited to see the mirror open mid-way through their routine to big cheers from the crowd and the dance captains.

Dance captain Todrick Hall said "I didn't feel like I was at a competition, I felt like I was at Ross and Travis Live".

The dancing duo, performing as Ross and Travis, are now eagerly waiting to see if they will be chosen as one of the twelve acts selected to appear on the live shows.

Travis said "It was an incredible experience auditioning for the show especially with my best friend. We had so much fun performing and are so grateful for all the amazing messages we have been sent since appearing on Saturday night. To make the live shows would be a dream come true".

Introducing the pair were Rome Vincent and Solly Cowdery, aged seven, who Ross and Travis teach at Shake, based in Ringwood and Poole.

The youngsters cheekily introduced the dancers and ran up on stage with host Jordan Banjo to join the boys and host Alesha Dixon, to congratulate them at the end of their performance.

Ross and Travis have been dancers at Shake for many years and this year were part of their team who became UDO World Street Dance Champions.

The boys trained for several weeks with teachers Rachel King and Ryan Nembhard leading up to their audition.
