Twist and Pulse, famed for their performances on Britain’s Got Talent (BGT), are coming to Carlisle with their new genre of dance called streetomedy.

The pair were runners up on BGT in 2010.

The workshop will blend street dance and comedy, and will be hosted by Razzamataz Theatre Schools.

Ashley Glazebrook, also known as Twist, said: “We have a class for beginners and another for more intermediate and advanced dancers so everyone can join in.

“We will be teaching a high-energy, controlled sharp movement, contrasting from slow to fast speeds with lots of laughter and a good feel vibe.”

The aim is for the workshop to inspire dancers of all kinds, as well as those who have no prior experience.

Meeting industry professionals is an integral part of the Razzamataz curriculum, and provides inspiration and fun for students, as well as an insight into the hard-working world of performing arts.

The dance studio has organised events with professionals in the past, including Kylie Minogue’s dancers.

Pulse, also known as Glen Murphy, said: “We can’t wait to meet everybody in Carlisle and have a real fun day.

“We want to get everybody feeling involved and enabling them just to let go of themselves for an hour or two of streetomedy.”

Twist and Pulse have performed in the city before, having been invited to perform at the U Can Shine awards ceremony at the Sands Centre in June last year.

The event is available to all current Razzamataz students in Carlisle, Penrith, Whitehaven and Dumfries, as well as non-members.

Booking is essential and tickets cost £25 for the two-hour event on Saturday, April 12.
