The Division are made up of dancers from Crawley, East Grinstead & Horsham, all of which attend the Urban City dance school.

Urban City support Diversity

Towards the end of the Summer some of our boys and girls hit the road and travelled 150 miles across country to support Diversity at DanceFest 2017. Our dancers got their number together in just three days before jumping on our coach - The Urbanator. What fun we had and what an honour it was to share the stage with Diversity and perform to a crowd of over 6,000. We love being able to provide our school with opportunities like these and are so proud of every one of our dancers.

To see what some of dancers got up to take a little peek at some of the footage we caught below.

Crawley Mayor Supporting the Dance School“I was thrilled to watch SA Academy and Urban City when they performed in Crawley earlier this year. They are a young vibrant group full of energy, talent and skill. I saw them perform in the main shopping area of the town during the opening of the local festival and was amazed at their dance routines. You could feel the energy coming from them .I have never seen so many passers by stop and watch a street event. The square was full. I think everyone was mesmerised by this exceptional group. I shall certainly look forward to seeing them again. If you get a chance to see them – do! You will love them"  Brenda Burgess Cllr. - EX Mayor of Crawley
