UEL’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ dancers ‘United We Stand’ ready to rock’n’roll
Wannabe dance stars of the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ TV show have pledged to use the �500,000 prize money if they win to develop a community centre in east London.
The ‘United We Stand’ dance troupe descended on the University of East London after the four ITV panel judges were wowed by their audition.
The group, which includes students from the university, has been getting its dance routine inspiration from the streets of east London in the six years members have been together.
“Our routines come from all different things that inspire us,” said Josh Franklin, third-year student studying a Sports Coaching degree.
“A lot of us are from east London, so we use that inspiration. Our different backgrounds inspire us, too.”

Wednesday’s performance at UEL was part of a mini-tour of east London which kicked-off with a performance at the Stratford Centre, then on to several schools.
But the ITV1 talent show wasn’t the group’s first big break—the dancers reached the finals of Sky1’s ‘Gotta Dance’ earlier this year as ‘Unity UK’.
