Christoffer Collins will represent Sweden in Eurovision Young Dancers 2017 and we met him after his first round of rehearsals.

After a rather eventful journey to Prague, where his flight from Stockholm was delayed due to bad weather, Christoffer has finally arrived!
Chris is a renowned street dancer with a decade of ballet training behind him. He’s a stage veteran at the young age of 18 and has appeared in theatre and opera, as well as on TV and music videos.
When asked about his solo dance, Chris replied: "I guess you could say it's a modern or contemporary solo," he said laughing whilst looking towards his choreographer. "It could be open to interpretation I guess!" Who inspires Chris? "Michael Jackson for sure, I loved watching him dance. He was probably but favourite dancer but also Ian Eastwood."
After the interview Chris gave an interpretation of a traditional Swedish dance, Slängpolska. Stay tuned for the video!
