Meet Our Dance Stars

Our Dance Stars


I’m Kristen-Leigh Petit I’m 12 years old and my dance school is Ignite Dance Company.  

I’ve danced from 3 years old in all styles, and was a Junior associate at The Royal Ballet School, but my favourite is commercial and hip hop styles. 

I’m an All England Dance Champion and Dance World Cup Modern and Ballet Soloist. I’ve also recently been cast in 2 films which will be due out in cinemas in 2022. 

I’m so excited to be a Can You Dance Star. 

I feel very lucky and fortunate to have been selected. I cannot wait to meet the other CYD stars and to attend the amazing regionals and intensives. 

It’s also incredible to be CYD star alongside my little sister Kimara-Mai. 

Thank you to the CYD team.
