Media 10 postpones Got to Dance Live

Media 10s latest launch, Got to Dance Live in partnership with Sky, has been pushed back until later in the year to allow for "further collaboration and planning".

The show was due to take place at Excel London from 4-6 March – four days before Upper Street Event’s Move It dance and performing arts show at Olympia.

It was to bring to life Sky’s Got to Dance TV series with dance classes, performances and shopping.

Acts from series two of Got to Dance, which is currently showing on Sky1 HD, were due to perform at the event, along with favourites from series one.

Media 10 managing director Lee Newton told Event the main reason for the postponement was there was such a short time frame to produce the event. "We only singed the contract with Sky just over a month ago, on the basis we would sell enough tickets, so it was always on a knife's edge," he said.

"There are enough companies out there that are prepared to put on events with less features and visitors and still loose money but we're not. We're having our best year so far, so it would be wrong to do something that didn't stack up to be another Media 10 success," he added.

A statement on the event's website apologises to ticket holders for any inconvenience caused and asks them to "watch this space" for future plans.

Those people who have already purchased tickets for the show will receive a full refund, and "as many as possible" will be offered free tickets to the remaining live shows in the programme's current series including the 6,000 capacity live final at Olympia.
