Flash Mob opens in the West End

Posted on October 8, 2012

flashmob5Charlie Bruce, winner of the BBC’s So You Think You Can Dance, stars in Flash Mob, which opens in the West End’s Peacock Theatre next week on October 16.

Flash Mob, which enjoyed a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this summer, aims to show off dancers who have come to wider public notice through television and films. 

 

Martin Blore, of World Dance Management, explains: “Often the winners and finalists from these dance programmes and movies are snapped up by West End theatre and international tours supporting pop legends, but they lose the chance to dance in their own right. This show gives them the opportunity to choreograph their own individual routines… They are the stars of their own show.”

In addition to Bruce, Flash Mob features hip hop crew the Elektrolytes, the current reigning champions of America’s Best Dance Crew, who are visiting the UK for the first time since their victory, and contemporary dance duo Alleviate and Irish dancers Brosena, who both appeared on Sky’s Got To Dance.

Latin dancer R.Elle Niane from the film Street Dance 2 3D, and her dance partner Edwar Ramos will also perform.

Flash Mob runs from October 16 to November 4. Performances begin at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced between £12 and £38. See www.sadlerswells.com for more information or call the ticket office on 08444 124 322.
