Internationally acclaimed choreographer and creative director Jason Gilkison will bring his expertise to the show’s first season judging panel. Apart from sharing his opinion on the competing couples’ interpretation of different dancing styles, he will also function as creative director, overseeing the couples and group choreography and the creative execution thereof.

Jason, whose creative skills have been seen around the globe on stage and screen, is probably best known for his work as judge and choreographer on the hugely successful TV series So You Think You Can Dance, both in Australia and the USA. He personally choreographed over 80 routines for the popular franchise.

Not a novice to the industry, the renowned choreographer has held the coveted position of Creative Director of Choreography on the BBC series Strictly Come Dancing in the UK. Along with his team, Jason’s creative vision and artistic direction has helped transform the show into a global success, earning him four BAFTA nominations along the way.
