CBBC Commissions Yeti for Young Dancers Doc


Welsh production company Yeti has been commissioned by CBBC to produce My Life: Battle of the Ballroom, centering on two 13-year-old dancers.

The documentary follows aspiring ballroom champions Bailey and Summer as they train for the Blackpool Championships through Covid-19 lockdowns. The finale will see the pair battle against 600 competitors as they dance Latin, Ballroom and the Cha-Cha-Cha for a medal.

Sian Price, creative director at Yeti, said, “The moment I saw Bailey and Summer waltzing around a hotel car-park during Covid, I knew I was witnessing a truly special friendship and two extraordinarily talented dancers! It’s been inspiring to follow their journey to Blackpool and have the privilege of sharing their lives over the last six months. I’ve no doubt viewers will certainly be rooting for them, and a few might even be inspired to try out ballroom dancing themselves!”
