For Synergy to perform alongside pop stars and groups like Escala, to show people how beautiful and artistic gymnastics is, to win Got To Dance.

Synergy is no stranger to the pressure of high profile competitions; as gymnasts they have been competing and rehearsing five times a week for most of their lives. Despite having no formal training in dance, Synergy fused their acrobatics into a dance routine that impressed the judges and earned them a place in the semi-finals.

This dynamic group met ten years ago at the Southampton Gymnastics Club and began their dance journey just six months ago when they decided to form Synergy specifically for the Got To Dance auditions. Often starting with an inspirational piece of music, Synergy draw creative input from all their members when choreographing their routines.

Getting a gold star from Ashley was a particular highlight for Synergy because of the jaw-dropping acrobatics in street dance group Diversity. Synergy say that getting into the semi-finals of Got To Dance is their biggest highlight yet, but will they top their achievement and make it to the finals?
