WELL-KNOWN street dance duo Twist and Pulse spent the day with local youngsters at a special one-off workshop.

Twist and Pulse are best known for their appearance on the fourth series of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent, in 2010, where they were runners-up.

They were invited to run a workshop as part of a dance camp hosted by Hastings dance school TTA.

Ashley Glazebrook (Twist) and Glen Murphy (Pulse) led two sessions and taught 150 youngsters aged between five and 17 their trademark ‘Streetomedy’.

The young people learned from the experts and also had the opportunity to create their own dances.

Tom Roche, of TTA dance school, said: “The kids got a fantastic opportunity to dance with Twist and Pulse, and had the chance to get their autographs and individual photos taken.

“At the end of the workshop all the parents came to watch a massive showcase that Twist and Pulse had put on.

“The two then gave a full performance to an audience of about 800 people.”

Twist and Pulse recently presented and performed at every date of the 70-day Olympic Torch Relay Tour and also at the Basketball, Badminton and Volleyball events at London 2012 Olympic Games.

They were so pleased with how the workshop went that they pronounced it the best and most successful masterclass they have given, and even made their own video diary of the day.
