After two sell out tours, street dancers Diversity are stopping off at the Motorpoint Arena in their biggest UK tour to date.

Spurred on by the group’s motto ‘Dream, Believe, Achieve’, Diversity pride themselves on hard work and dedication.
Group leader and choreographer Ashley Banjo, who is also a judge on Sky 1 show Got To Dance, said: “We have been blown away by the reaction we received from our first two tours.”
“It has been amazing. We are really looking forward to getting back out there with a brand new show.”
He is also fronting Ashley Banjo’s Secret Street Crew, which sees Ashley turn the unlikeliest movers into street dance stars.
Ashley will meet people from different walks of life, including darts players, beauticians, dinner ladies, polo and rugby players, and set about transforming them into sharp, on-point troupes able to light up the stage by personally choreographing routines for the novice dancers.
In the last couple of years, Diversity have performed in front of the Queen on The Royal Variety Show, they starred in British smash-hit film StreetDance 3D and are the first act to perform outside No.10 Downing Street in front of the Prime Minister.
