“With their tattoos, piercings and gelled hair, this young group have boy band appeal. To judge by the audience screams, they already have a fan base.” The Independent
Michael Nunn and William Trevitt (Artistic Directors of Balletboyz) first saw the four young dancers now performing as Ballet Boyz II at a showcase for Youth Dance England. They were so impressed with the group that they invited them into the studio and encouraged them to make their professional debut as part of the company’s Greatest Hits tour last November, sharing a programme with choreographers such as Russell Maliphant, and William Tuckett and artists such as Viviana Durante and Oxana Panchenko.
Thanks to the support of the national street arts consortium Without Walls, this venue based piece of work has now been re-worked for outdoor presentation and the sleek post-modern environs of Canary Wharf will provide the perfect backdrop for this gripping and compelling piece of dance.
