Instead of story-time and P.E being two separate lessons at school, an education programme being used in the curriculum across the UK is combining the two ideas to get kids creating – and moving.
The Fit To Dance programme allows children to create their own stories using Disney On Ice presents Passport to Adventure as inspiration, which they then perform in a dance routine with a little help from Ashley Banjo and the Disney On Ice cast.
Banjo was born in Leytonstone, London to a Nigerian father, Funso Banjo, a professional boxer, and an English mother, Danielle Banjo, a former Ballet dancer, who now helps with Diversity’s management and also runs Danceworks Studios.
Ashley grew up in Wickford, Essex with his younger brother, Jordan and his sister Talisa Banjo. He went to St Johns School in Billericay.
At the time of Diversity’s Britain’s Got Talent win, Banjo was studying physics and biology at Queen Mary, University of London, having previously attended SEEVIC College.
Having completed his first two years, he took a break from studying to concentrate on his dancing in the year following winning BGT.
Banjo has been in a six-year relationship with Francesca Abbott, who is a member of another dance troupe called Out of the Shadows.
