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.
