Britain’s Got Talent’s United We Stand to perform at Stratford Centre

Stratford dancers United We Stand have set their sights on reaching the live semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent.

The 10-member group wowed judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Carmen Electra when they performed on the ITV1 show.

And they have pledged to use their �500,000 prize money, if they are successful, to develop a community centre in Stratford.

Choreographer Tashan Muir said they wanted to put their turn in the spotlight to good use.

He said: “We have performed in dance competitions across Europe but we always want to go back to our roots.

The dancers are no strangers to TV talent shows, reaching the final stages of Sky 1’s Got to Dance earlier this year as Unity UK.
