BRIT school graduates and Britain’s Got Talent runners up Twist and Pulse have toured the UK and Ireland extensively performing to over 1,000,000 people. Most recently since their audition, they returned to our screens as mentors and choreographers of their own dance company (Twist and Pulse Dance Company). Twist (Ashley Glazebrook) and Pulse (Glen Murphy) met at The Brit School of Performing Arts & Technology.
Born and bred South Londoners, they have quickly become role models for young people around the UK today. They provide the perfect antidote to the social issues facing young people today providing purpose and motivation at difficult times. After the youth riots in the summer of 2011, Ash and Glen have become even more determined to work with young people. “We love seeing kids getting into dancing. We just want to teach them everything we know and pass on all our passion! We want to show kids that you can come from nothing and make it with hard work and a dream.”
Streetomedy - A blend of street dance and comedy.
Since their rise to fame as runners up on series 4 of Britain's Got Talent, Twist and Pulse have been traveling the world with their own unique style 'Streetomedy'.
"The reason for coming up with Streetomedy is because the laughter and fun within the routines are just as important as the dancing. We want to make everyone in the audience to feel at ease and lose themselves in what we are doing. A lot of street dance is known to be quite serious or even quite deep emotionally. Our choice is to come at it from the other angle and make you laugh whilst also thinking "WOW"
"Coming up with it was just natural, it wasn't a sit down discussion. We would just always mess up or do something silly in rehearsals and rather than think, lets get rid of that, we would keep it. It would then become a transition or we would add music to it to bring the move to life, the next thing we know....STREETOMEDY WAS BORN"
