UPDATED: Diversity show in Swindon cancelled

DIVERSITY will perform an exclusive set in Swindon this year.

The world-famous dance troupe, winners of the third series of Britain's Got Talent in 2009, will headline a hometown show being staged by MF Dance at the Oasis leisure centre.

The 30-minute performance on Sunday, December 1 will come on the back of Diversity's eagerly-awaited Born Ready 10-Year Anniversary Tour, which visits venues around the UK through the autumn.

The group, led by Ashley Banjo, is also set to launch online classes under its 20DV brand.

Red Sky Promotions, a start-up company based on Gipsy Lane, has joined forces with Swindon-born celebrity trainer Matt Fiddes to bring Diversity to Swindon.

Matt, who was once a bodyguard for Michael Jackson, runs a successful martial arts franchise and launched MF Dance to provide students with greater confidence, discipline, fitness and focus.

The December show promises to bring together performers of all ages from both Swindon and Oxford in a celebration of street and contemporary dance.
