It’s made a social impact both in the UK and globally, it’s changed perceptions of plus size dancers and now, it’s been nominated for a TV Choice Award! Popular Channel 4 show Big Ballet has been longlisted for Reality TV Programme of the Year in this year’s awards.
Featuring the multitalented Raj Parmar, who this year danced his way onto television screens across the globe, Big Ballet is a strong contender in its category. Up against the likes of Made In Chelsea and The Only Way Is Essex, the show is certainly facing some tough competition, but is definitely up for the challenge!
Trained Bollywood dancer Raj displayed his versatility in dance on the show as he expertly mastered classic Ballet moves. Beating 500 hopefuls in the selection process, Raj landed one of the lead roles as heinous villain Baron Von Rothbart in the Big Ballet version of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.
The finale of Big Ballet saw the dancers perform their supersized Swan Lake in front of an audience of 1500. Fans of Raj and the show need to submit their votes online by 20th June in order to see the Big Ballet stars accept the impressive accolade.
The shortlist will be announced in TV Choice magazine on Tuesday 2nd July – so be sure to get voting to show your support for Raj!
