They are complemented by four of their best friends: Terry Smith, Ike Ezekwugo, Warren Russell and Perri Luc Kiely.
The tour will see Diversity performing exclusively choreographed routines based on their ITV special.
A fast moving celebration of the triumph of young love over the misguided plotting of others. The predicament of the innocent lovers Lise and Colas, the comic antics of Alain and the hilarious meddling of Widow Simone create some of the most memorable and technically challenging set pieces in the classica repertoire.

In this quietly devastating new work for two performers inspired by Virginia Woolf's short story Lappin and Lapinova, a man and a woman meet and have sex and fall deeply in love. Each night the lovers slip away from their real lives into a world that exists only in their shared imagination: a world that belongs to them, in which tax returns and shopping lists and commuting do not exist; a world in which they are not their normal selves, but King of the Rabbits and Queen of the Hares. But what begins as a game soon becomes a battleground, and the couple hurtle towards a tragedy of the saddest, and most ordinary kind. Devised by Ben Duke in collaboration with Lucy Kirkwood. Duration: 75mins
Three dancers, one voice, one guitar and one percussion box: No Frills is flamenco stripped down to its bare essence. Through an exploration of a number of its traditional styles in their most evocative form, this show is a celebration of the raw and nuanced energy that flamenco awakens, not only in the dancer but in the spectator too. Three young artists, Noemi Luz, Magdalena Mannion and Yinka Esi Graves, seamlessly interweave their individual styles creating a shared flamenco language. No Frills asks the spectator to put aside pre-conceptions of what flamenco is, instead giving a unique insight into its rhythms, melodies, energy and power.
One of ballet's most famous works with some of its best known music. It is Siegfried's birthday and his mother gives him a crossbow and an ultimatum to get married! After the party and finding himself alone he goes hunting. The evil magician Rothbart (half man half bird) keeps beautiful women as swans on the lake - but by night they resume human form. Siegfried is bewitched by Odette, a Princess and one of the Swans. She explains their plight to Siegfried and says the spell can only be broken by someone who'll love her truly for ever. He swears to do so but Odette returns to being a swan as Rothbart's powers are so strong. Siegfried returns to the palace and his mother presents him with a string of women from whom to chose his bride - Rothbart arrives with his daughter Odile disguised as Odette and Siegfried agrees to marry her - only then realising his mistake as Odile reviles him for breaking his vow to Odette. Siegfried returns to the lake and begs Odette to forgive him - then fights Rothbart whom he kills - and the swans are released from the spell.
Atomising bodies, movement, film, sound and light into miniature shards of intense sensation, Atomos is the newest work by cutting-edge contemporary choreographer Wayne McGregor.

He is accompanied by a team of sensational artists including long time collaborators lighting designer Lucy Carter and filmmaker Ravi Deepres, along with costumes by the ground-breaking designers of wearable technologies, Studio XO. Neo-classical ambient composers A Winged Victory For The Sullen provide the soaring score.
