Twist and Pulse
Who is Twist and Pulse?
Twist and Pulse are an English street dance duo based in London. They were the runners-up of the fourth series of Britain's Got Talent in 2010, second to Spelbound in the live final. In 2012, they presented and performed at every date of the 70-day Olympic Torch Relay Tour and also at the basketball, badminton and volleyball events at London 2012 Olympic Games.
Ashley Glazebrook was born in 1991 in Sidcup, in a family of two brothers, four step-brothers and seventeen cousins. From a young age he loved music, especially by Michael Jackson. At the Business Academy Bexley Secondary School, Ash began to show an interest in dance and joined a local street dance group, performing at events such as The Streetdance Weekend UK Championships and The World Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas. He went on to study dance at The BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology.
Glazebrook and Murphy met at the BRIT School of Performing Arts and Technology where they were both studying for a BTEC National Diploma in dance, training in ballet, tap dance, contemporary and jazz dance. They discovered they had an equally wacky sense of humour and quickly became best friends. With college coming to an end, they formed a duo called The Cheeky Boiz, and began rehearsing their "streetomedy" performances - a blend of streetdance and comedy - which led to the finals of Britain's Got Talent in 2010. They performed on the Daybreak morning show on ITV, in the week leading up to the 2011 Britain's Got Talent.
