With just 15 days to go until the live final of Eurovision Young Dancers, and just over a week until delegations arrive in Pilsen, Dutch participant Timothy van Poucke has sadly had to withdraw from the event due to injury. He will be replaced by Thijs Hogenboom, who has been chosen by broadcaster NTR and approved by Head Choreographer Cameron McMillan.
"It's very sad for Timothy that he is injured and cannot take part in Pilsen," said Executive Supervisor Vladislav Yakovlev. "However, I am very pleased that NTR have been able to find another excellent candidate in such a short space of time. We look forward to welcoming Thijs to Pilsen, and I would like to express my thanks to the Young Dancers team at NTR for their hard work in finding him."
