Ashley Banjo and Diversity for new Sky 1 series

Ashley will be going to Stockton-on-Tees to try and get the town dancing again.

Ashley Banjo and dance group Diversity will be coming to Stockton-on-Tees this summer as part of a brand new Sky 1 series.

Ashley Banjo: The Town That Danced Again will see Ashley and Diversity trying to persuade the people of this northern market town to join in him a street dance spectacular, which he hopes will bring the whole community together.

Up until the 1960’s, Stockton-on-Tess had a proud dance heritage, but in the 1970’s dance halls began to close and the town looked as if it forgot how to dance. Ashley plans to change all that.

With the aim of creating a dazzling street-dance spectacular, he’ll start by bringing together people who have similar jobs but who never meet. From shop assistants and market traders, teachers and librarians, to council staff and care workers, Ashley will unite the town’s workers by choreographing a series of individual street dance routines.

Then, for one day only, Stockton’s high street, the widest in Britain, will be transformed into the UK’s largest open air venue as Ashley and his workers bring the routines together. He’ll lead the whole town in an unforgettable, show-stopping street-dance finale.

Ashley Banjo commented: “I have always believed that street dance is for everyone, whether you are part of a crew or going solo. This is the biggest challenge I have ever taken on, let’s hope I can give Stockton-on-Tees their dancing spirit back.”

Ashley Banjo: The Town That Danced Again will air later in the year.
