The Urban Playground Team are the original performance-parkour (2PK) company combining urban & contemporary dance with authentic French Free-Running. The Team have toured their performances and teaching across five continents for clients including the British Council. Since 2006 the team has included co-creator of Parkour Malik Diouf. In 2009 the Team designed and opened the UK’s first permanent parkour site, and have since launched two more. In 2013 they founded the international performance-parkour network to support the development of 2PK globally.  They have appeared on BBC1’s Blue Peter and Sky1’s Got To Dance. The UPG Team are supported by South East Dance, and are ‘Playtime Artists’ at Pavilion Dance South West.
