Dance fever has taken over the world thanks to the popularity of television talent contents like So you think you can dance, Strictly come dancing and The X Factor (before it became a singing contest to rival The Voice.) Not only have these programs given their respective networks unprecedented ratings, they have spawned a new generation of wannabe dance sensations.
It is out with the traditional ballroom, ballet and musical theatre, and in with the high-energy street dancing/hip hop crews that take the old rules and turn them on their head (literally).
BLAZE the show, is a culmination of 12 of the worlds best street-dancers and b-boys, and is an action packed 90-minute ride of exceptional talent, rocking tunes and (seemingly) physically impossible tricks, flips and head spins.
Directed by acclaimed West End director Anthony van Laast (Mamma Mia!), and including the best and brightest dancers from across the globe, BLAZE sets the floor on fire and blows the audience away in a showcase of individual dedication and seamless collaboration.
There is nothing to dislike about BLAZE, the dancers are impeccable performers and include the audience in their journey on stage. These performers are true entertainers who offer the audience an hour and a half of blissful toe-tapping joy.
Backed by impossible to resist tunes from Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga and so many more, BLAZE is a dance party like no other. Held in the newly refurbished Hamer Hall, the incredible cast will leave you breathless in admiration and fear as their head turning stunts and death-defying backflips refute all laws of nature.
Truly a wonderful experience, BLAZE the show has an infectious energy that will keep you bopping to your own tune for days to come.
