THE Rock’s answer to Michael Flatley is two-stepping across the pond to join one of the world’s most prestigious dance schools.
Britain’s Got Talent star Jonathan Lutwyche jetted off for New York on September 11 where he will attend the world-renowned Joffrey Ballet School.
And Jonathan – still only 15 years old – ‘cannot wait’ to get stuck in.
“It is an absolute honour for me to have been selected by the school,’ he told the Olive Press.
“I am so excited but at the same time it is gutting to be leaving my friends and family behind.
“I will never forget where I am from and I will always be proud of my country.”
Jonathan rose to fame with his breath-taking BGT audition at the Royal Albert Hall in May, which brought the entire audience to its feet, along with Simon Cowell, the rest of the judges and the millions watching on TV.
He first attracted the attention of the Joffrey Ballet School during a training camp last summer.
But he hasn’t let stardom go to his head.
Truly down to earth, Jonathan spent this summer working in a pet shop, as well as appearing at numerous local events including a mesmerising National Day performance at Casemates Square on the eve of his departure.
