Diversity

Description

English

This film shows a dance called ‘Impossible’ made up and performed by a group of Year 5 boys at a Sheffield school. A number of the boys go to street dance classes out of school and they have pooled some of the moves they know to choreograph the dance. They later put music to it and performed it in a school assembly. This is one of several dances they had done together at school. Just a few weeks before this film was made in 2009 the dance group Diversity won the popular television talent show, Britain's Got Talent (ITV, 2007-present). The group’s winning performance was the boys’ inspiration for this latest dance. All the performers expressed the hope that they could become the ‘new’ Diversity.
