Despite growing up in AJ's parents dance studio surrounded by dancing (Adrian Pritchard - founder of Pritchards Dance Academy), dancing was not an interest, AJ's interest was extreme sports, snowboarding and mountain boarding. An adrenaline junkie!
However, at the age of 11, a TV channel approached the academy looking for a young dancer to take part in a dance programme - AJ decided he wanted to be that person. One problem - he couldnt dance!
Despite failure at that point, AJ's passion for dance was born, and he hasnt' looked back since. At the age of 21 he had become the British Open to the World, European and World Ballroom, and Latin Champion, coupled with Chloe his beautiful partner.
Their initial career started when the couple were talent spotted to take part in "Britains Got Talent".
Louise Rainbow, Producer of Strictly Come Dancing soon spotted this formiddable dancing duo and they became the youngest ever professional dancers on BBC'S Strictly Come Dancing, dancing in 2016 with Claudia Fragapane, returning in 2017 partnered with Mollie King, and again in 2018 with Lauren Steadman. AJ danced his partner all the way to the semi-finals in series 14, and AJ's fan base was born.
AJ has most recently taken part in BBC Celebrity Masterchef 2018, and is about to star in the celebrity version of 'The Hunted' in support of Stand Up For Cancer.
