Nickelodeon UK and Ireland have announced in the "What's On Nickelodeon" schedule section on and in the channels latest 'Next Week on Jordan & Perri' promo/trailer currently airing on Nick UK, the Nickelodeon UK News that the fifth brand new episode of Nick UK and Sky 1 HD's brand new dance-themed reality series "Jordan & Perri's Ultimate Block Party", which Nickelodeon UK & Ireland and Nickelodeon HD UK will premiere and show on Friday 5th July 2013 at 6.30pm (repeated at 7.30pm on Nick UK's +1 (plus-one) timeshift channel, Nick+1), will feature the shows presenters, Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely, of British street dance troupe Diversity fame, helping The Welsh Breakers, a group of five young boys from a sleepy-village in the Welsh Valleys who have formed their own crew called the Vortex Breakdancers, to enhance their dance skills and pull off a performance that will impress all their friends! A special guest shows up to give the group some last minute teaching – Diversity's very own crew leader, Ashley Banjo - but only after the boys put Ashley through his paces with a quick game of rugby.

The Vortex Breakdancers is a dance group formed to help keep local kids out of mischief in their otherwise quiet, small town near Newport. Made up from Jayden, 13, Cameron, 11, Ethan, 11, Liam, 13, and Kenny, 12, the group has a real family-like bond, especially as they are unofficially managed by one of the group member's brothers. According to the boys, nothing ever happens in their village and so they couldn't have been more excited to be surprised by Jordan and Perri. Finally, a chance to spice things up! Luckily, The Break Dancers already have street dance experience, but working with Jordan and Perri means they can try to perfect their “resurrection” dance moves, improve their flips and spins, and most importantly perfect their kick-butt attitude:
