Dancer Daniel Rolls is strutting his stuff in the semi-finals of the largest talent competition in south Wales today (Wednesday).

Fourteen-year-old Pembroke School pupil Daniel, of Pembroke Dock, has won through the first round and quarter finals of The Welsh Factor.

Today he will take to the stage at the Cwmfelin Social Club in Swansea in the hope of reaching the final and dancing away with the first prize of £1,000 and the offer of a £10,000 contract with a leading South Wales entertainment agency.

He wowed the judges in the contest's first round with his Revolution dance - a mixture of freestyle and street dance - and despite not having a second act prepared, went on to perform two minutes of improvised hip-hop to Michael Jackson's Jam.

In the quarter finals, he was challenged by tough opposition from an award-winning street dance team and numerous talented singers, but won through with his Star Wars dance, followed by a street routine to Rock This Party, with the judges commenting on his exceptional timing and high level of fitness.

Daniel is a member of the West Wales Academy of Dance, the Seren School of Irish Dancing and the Alice Russell School of Dance.
