Students who attend Stagecoach Theatre Arts Schools recently enjoyed a fantastic workshop learning the dance moves of ‘Twist & Pulse’, runners up in last year’s Britain’s Got Talent.

Ashley Glazebrook (Twist) and Glen Murphy (Pulse) met at the BRIT School of performing arts where they were both studying for a BTEC National Diploma in Dance and soon became firm friends with their shared wacky sense of humour.
The two came up with the novel ‘Streetomedy’ performances - a blend of streetdance and comedy which went down a storm and led to the duo reaching the finals of BGT in 2010.

At the workshop, the duo proved to be excellent teachers to the students as they guided them through some fast paced choreographed dance routines. Chiswick’s Dance teacher, Alice Bendall got in to the swing of it quickly and helped the students when they were split in to groups to choreograph their individual finales.

After a couple of hours dancing, photo shoots and autograph signing, the students were treated to the duo performing the routine which they originally performed in the first heat of last year’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ to rapturous applause.

The same students will be performing with ‘Spellbound’, winners of last year’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ at The Apollo on September 12th.
