Dance stars Diversity are to step out with a 2019 UK tour to celebrate their tenth anniversary - including Yorkshire dates.
The Born Ready Tour, created by dance troop leader Ashley Banjo, will play York Barbican on Tuesday, October 1, Hull Bonus Arena, on Friday, October 4 and a matinee at Sheffield City Hall on Sunday, October 6.
They will also appear at Harrogate Convention Centre, Friday, November 15, and Halifax Victoria Theatre, Wednesday, November 20.
After eight sell out UK tours, over half a million tickets sold, and countless television and live performances, Diversity are set to celebrate their landmark tenth year.
In 2009 they took the nation by storm when they won the third series of Britain’s Got Talent, beating Susan Boyle in front of a television audience of more than 20 million.
Since then, thanks to the overwhelming support of their fans and the British public they continue to wow audiences around the world with their innovative live tours and performances.
Creator and choreographer Ashley Banjo said: "It's an incredibly special tour for the whole Diversity family. - since we won Britain’s Got Talent we have continued to innovate, grow and achieve things that most said were impossible.
"Born Ready will not only celebrate this and look back at some of the iconic Diversity moments over the past 10 years. It will look forward to the future, at how Diversity continues to evolve and how we plan to pass what we’ve created onto the next generation.
"Be prepared for dance, illusions, mind blowing stunts and inspiring stories that will hopefully leave people amazed!”
