Following on from their spectacular performance at the Royal Variety performance Urban Strides were invited to perform at the launch of the new Vauxhall Corsa with international reggae star Sean Paul. Vauxhall were so impressed by Urban Strides they became their vehicle sponsors.
Due to their continued success Blue Peter dedicated a whole show to Urban Strides, they opened and closed the show as well as teaching the London Children’s ballet company how to street dance! Following on from their breathtaking performances Urban Strides were asked to be featured artists on the Young Voices Tour 07 and due to a phenomenal amount of feedback have been asked back this year to bring a hip hop flavour to the Concerts.

It is Urban Strides’ mission to bring authentic Street Dance delivered with vibrancy and passion to people from all walks of life. With this in mind, Urban Strides become the first street dance crew in the UK to release their very own authentic “Pure Street Dance DVD”. The DVD features some of the coolest moves including how to body pop, wave and glide just like Usher.
