The Glee and Finding Neverland actor will be part of a trio of dance captains in the program, which will search for the best dancer in the U.K. Morrison will be joined by Cheryl Tweedy (Girls Aloud) and Oti Mabuse ( Strictly Come Dancing). Alesha Dixon and Jordan Banjo will host.
Eight episodes of the series—which will feature talent from the dance world (spotlighting ballet, jazz, hip-hop, Bollywood, and more)—have been ordered to air Saturday nights. Auditions for the program will be held in Birmingham prior to a 2019 debut.
Viewers can expect to view challenges and live performance in addition to the auditions.
Morrison said in a statement, “This is such a powerful moment for me. It’s wonderful to continue bringing music and dance into peoples’ lives like we did on Glee. Dance is a safe haven that allows us to communicate where words cannot. It’s an expression of love and empowerment, driven by all the emotions that make us human. I love being exposed to people who are pursuing art, and expression, and I look forward to being a moving force for good on their journey. As a dance captain, my sincere hope is that I can uplift and encourage all the dancers here to reach their greatness.”
