Joseph Tobin, 17, who attends Franklin College, qualified after taking part in the regional heat at the Cleethorpes Dance Festival at the end of March.
After a closely-fought battle, Joseph came out top with an incredible score of 94 out of 100 marks.
He also won five other trophies at the festival – including highest score in ballet and highest score in duet – but his personal highlight is the opportunity to take part in the grand final of the elite Dance Master UK competition on June 12.
Joseph said: “When I was younger I always admired the dancers on the stage and always aspired to be like them.
“I knew I wanted to compete in the heat when I was old enough; last year I entered the heat and got second place by one point, so this year I was determined to do my best and try win the heat.
“It was a major shock to win, and I’m really happy I managed to get through.
“To have the opportunity to perform on the big stage is amazing, and I can’t wait to perform.”
Joseph added: “I’d like to think I will perform well at the finals, but with such a high standard at the competition all I can do is give it my best shot to impress the judges!”
The prize is a scholarship fund that can go towards a dancer’s training.
Joseph took up dancing at the age of seven, when it was believed that he had dyspraxia and that taking up a sport – such as dancing – might help with his coordination and movement. He said: “I was taken to my first dance class by my mum, and ever since I’ve fallen in love with it.”
Joseph’s dancing achievements haven’t stopped there. He was recently spotted by a talent scout at a dancing festival in Grantham, and was given the opportunity to audition for a three year course at Chantry School of Contemporary and Balletic Arts, plus a place on their senior associate programme – and he was successful on both counts.
