Biography


At 19 years of age, Charlie is the youngest dancer in the competition, having started at the tender age of 10. She loves dance so much she left college to go into full time training. Now she's ready to make her mark on the dance world and sees SYTYCD as the perfect opportunity to do so.

Charlie began dancing aged 3 and started lessons properly aged 7. By the time she was 10, her talent was recognised and she took up a scholarship to Arts Educational School where she trained before moving on to Laine Theatre Arts. She has starred in panto but has yet to score a role in a West End musical. Charlie says her dream role would be Roxie in Chicago.

She loves running and swimming, and goes to the gym at least twice a week. She's competent in ballet, jazz, contemporary, latin and ballroom and is keen to embrace the competition.
