It is every dancer's dream, to be on stage alongside an international star, and for one young dancer from Hayes, it is about to become a reality.

13-year-old, Basit has been picked from thousands of dancers in the UK to appear on stage alongside Justin Bieber as part of his World Tour.

After submitting a video of himself dancing in his living room, judges picked him over thousands of other entries to dance alongside the Canadian star as part of his current Purpose World Tour.

Basit, who currently trains at his local dance school, Futunity UK in Uxbridge, will perform the same dance, as well as a freestyle routine on stage with the star in front of thousand of screaming Bieber fans at the O2.

The street dancer told getwestlondon that he is extremely excited: "I can't believe I'm dancing with Justin Bieber.

"It is just phenomenal thinking that I've been chosen out of thousands.

"I would never of thought I would get an opportunity like this - but now that I have I'm so excited and grateful."

The 13-year-old, full name, Abdul Basit Ayanwusi only began dancing three years ago but within that time he has achieved a lot.

He's won various competitions across the UK, including holding the title of UDO British Street Dance Champion three times in a row.

He's also appeared on television for game changers on Sky Sports.

Basit has been dancing for 3 years

"I absolutely love to dance!" says Basit: "It's just something I'm passionate about and would never give up.

"It's one thing that entertains me and keeps me out the streets, which is one thing lots of kids struggle with.

"However because of dance I'm so mature and it is the thing that helped me get a chance to dance with Justin Bieber.

He adds: "I'm grateful and appreciate everyone who supported and are still supporting me! I really can't wait to be on stage and represent my dance families. Let's do this"

Although dancing is his passion, Basit also takes his education very seriously.

He currently attends Barnhill Community High School in Hayes and loves science.

"Dance isn't something I want to do as a career despite how much I love it," Basit told getwestlondon.

"I might do something to do with science instead.

"The reason being is because dancers have a very short career. If they get any injuries, they may never be able to dance again. That's why I want to also focus on my academics and have a great qualification.

"If I get more great opportunities with dance in future, who knows; I may go on that path."

Basit will be on stage at the O2 with Justin Bieber on Tuesday November 29.
