VIDEO: Britain's Got Talent stars Twist and Pulse visit Sydney Smith School
BRITAIN'S Got Talent stars Twist and Pulse showed children some new moves at Sydney Smith School.
The street dance duo put two classes through their paces at the weekend.
They were an instant hit on national television in 2010, dancing to the Cheeky Girls and the EastEnders theme tune on Britain's Got Talent.
Since then, they have toured with the Olympic torch, raised money for charity and visited schools across the country teaching others how to dance.
"It was a great day," said Urban Youth Dance Company leader Faye Dalee, who organised the classes.
"It was a bit surreal. There was a warm-up with the kids, then they taught them a routine. They took questions and signed autographs and photographs.
"They were so down-to-earth and friendly. They made you feel really at ease."
Twist and Pulse taught two classes and 67 people took part.
They were very impressed with the standard of the advanced dancers.
The dance duo took students through the routine they performed for the Olympics.
Faye said: "I thought some of the younger ones might struggle a little bit but they kept up fine and Twist and Pulse were really impressed."
Faye had asked the pair to come and teach after finding an email address for their manager on the internet.
"I saw something on the internet about them and sent the manager an email," she said.
"They got back to me after a month or so when I had forgotten all about it. I was really excited."
Faye has been a fan of the pair since they first found fame on national television.
She said: "They're so different to every other street dance act. I've always followed them."
The pair gave Faye some advice about running her own group.
They told her to stick with it, even when times were tough.
"They told me if I got any knock-backs to just keep going," Faye said.
"It makes you stronger as a team."
Although Faye has tendonitis and was not able to take part in the whole class, she found it impossible to resist having a go.
She said: "I've been told not to dance for two weeks but I couldn't help it. I really wanted to join in."
Millie Merjer, 11, took part in one of the classes.
"I liked the dancing," she said.
"It was amazing and fantastic.
"We danced to a really good song. I always love dancing."
After the classes, Twist and Pulse took to Twitter to share their enthusiasm.
"Had such a great day teaching at Urban Youth in Hull," they wrote.
"So much potential, keep up the good work guys!"
