    A young South Florida group has been dancing nights away for weeks. They call themselves the Untouchables and they have a lot to prepare for.

    "We are so close to the finals," dance instructor Manny Castro said. "We are just dreaming about it."

    Next Tuesday, they will compete against 11 others in the "America's Got Talent" semifinals. Only three acts will go to the finals.

    "Anything can happen," dancer Carly Regueiferos said. "It can go both ways – bad or good, so I'm just really nervous of what they'll say, but when good comments come out of their mouth, I'm relieved."

    The team is made up of 20 dancers, ranging from 8 to 14 years old.

    Castro credits his team's success to dedication, talent, and youth. Parents agree.

    "They start so little," parent Carol Meroni said. "They work super hard to get here. They work three to four hours daily, but they love this. This is what they love to do."

    And the experience is not lost on these young minds.

    "You won't be on 'America's Got Talent' every day, and it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience," 11-year-old D'Angelo Castro said.

    So in a week, to make it to the finals, the kids say expect the unexpected.

    "We are taking it to another level," Regueiferos said. "We're taking a risk and we hope we surprise America."

    The Untouchables leave Wednesday to perform live in the semifinals on "America's Got Talent." Their performance is Tuesday night, Sept. 4 and the results show is the next night, on Wednesday, Sept. 5.
