Nervous 14-Year-Old Contemporary Dancer Reduces One Judge To Tears

14-year-old contemporary dancer Ellie reduces one judge to tears after talented performance. This Scottish dancer was full of nerves as she competed for a spot on The Greatest Dancer.


From a very young age, Ellie showed a special talent for dance. No one else in her family has a dancing background, but she begged her parents to enroll her in classes. Soon, everyone that saw Ellie dance said that she had that something. For years, this teen has dedicated herself to pursuing her passion, even when it means missing out on social events.

Now, she’s following her dreams all the way to The Greatest Dancer stage. This new show follows dancers of all ages and genres as they compete for prize money and the chance to appear on Strictly Come Dancing. At first, the dancer is hidden behind a wall. As they start to perform, the audience is given the chance to vote on the audition. If more than 75 percent of the audience likes the dancer, the mirrored-wall will open and the dancer moves on to the next round.

Watch as Ellie shakes off the nerves to start her performance to ‘In This Shirt’ by The Irrepressibles. As she gracefully moved across the stage, judge Oti Mabuse couldn’t hold back the tears. The audience felt something too because before long, the walls were opening up and Ellie was officially moving on to the next stage of competition. What an inspiring performance from such a young talent. We’re all looking forward to what she comes out with next.
