Flava are perhaps best known for reaching the semi-finals of ITV’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ in 2008. They achieved national recognition and capitalized on this hard earned opportunity to do what they love, which is, to dance and perform.
“The raw talent and the choreography are as good as anything I’ve seen in America. They are one of the best dance acts I’ve seen in this country. They are terrific.”
Even before ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Flava won numerous competitions and represented England and the UK at the World Hip Hop Championships and the Dance Excellence Awards in Los Angeles. Since their prime time television exposure on Britains Got Talent, the team have grown in strength and ability with renewed dedication and direction.
“We are looking to tour schools in the UK not just to promote Flava, but to show the kids that if they put their mind to something they can achieve so much. We work hard, but it’s a lot of fun and we really enjoy what we do. Hopefully we’ll inspire other kids to want to do the same.”

In the winter of 2009 the group received an Honorary Phillip Lawrence Award presented to them by Sir Trevor Mc Donald for their work with young people across the UK, tackling Anti-Social Behaviour. The team have been working alongside various police forces across the UK inspiring young people to put their energy into something positive. They have their own brand called “This Is Me” which focuses on people embracing being unique and confident in the individuality.
They are now recognised worldwide and have added countries such as Abu Dhabi, Philippines, Egypt and Los Angeles to their profile.
Flava’s main focus is to inspire people to become what they are capable of being. They use dance as their main focus to help people find confidence, uniqueness and self-belief. They strive to put this powerful message across through their teaching and performances.
