Jasmine Flurry, aged 20, and her hip hop tap group Pulse Collective want to change the world’s perspective of tap dancing and inspire a new generation of dancers.

The former Backwell School pupil is asking people from North Somerset to back her group and help them fight for the £250,000 prize by voting for them if they get through.

Jasmine, who is trained in all styles of dance and moved to London to study at the Stella Mann Dance College, said: “We are hoping to change people’s views of tap. People want to see something current and new.

“The show is really good fun. We got to meet all the judges, who are really lovely, particularly Kimberly. We’ve got on to the shortlist but if we get to the semi finals we need the public vote.”

Jasmine, who has been dancing since she was three and started off at the Jennie Nelmes School of Dance, said: “I hope people will appreciate what we are doing and help us to change people’s views.

“If we were to win I think it would be such a big step for tap dancing.

“Everyone now loves hip hop and wants to learn it, but that was because of Diversity. That’s what we want to do for tap.”

Acts on Got to Dance, which is presented by Davina McCall, are judged by Ashley Banjo from Diversity, dancer Kimberly Wyatt and Aston Merrygold from JLS.

The final of the show is due to be aired on March 17.
