India Bowen, who goes to Reynolds Performing Arts College in Dartford, will dance with her group IMD Legion for a place in the final live on Sunday evening at 6pm.

She and the other 19 members will be looking to impress judges Aston Merrygold, of boy band JLS, Kimberley Wyatt, of the Pussycat Dolls, and dance group Diversity’s Ashley Banjo.

Formed as an after school club to dispel the myth that dance is a poor career choice, the group auditioned last year and are now one performance away from becoming one of the final 10 acts.

India has performed in The Pied Piper at the Barbican and her group came out on top in the Serious About Street Dance Championships last year.
