Blaze The Show has been dubbed a high-energy nonstop street dance and breakdance extravaganza.
A highlight of this year’s Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS), it’ll be held at DUCTAC’s Centrepoint Theatre next month.
Featuring cutting-edge urban dance from some of the genre’s biggest names, the interactive phenomenon blends nightclub vibes with West End production values.
Fusing the genres of breaking, tapping, popping, locking and hip-hop, members of the Blaze dance crew have performed with the likes of Michael Jackson, Madonna, Rihanna and Sean Paul.
Having toured from the UK to Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, France, Australia and even Thailand, Blaze is bound for UAE shores – make it a date in your diary!
James Craven, Managing Director of promoter Live Nation Middle East, said: “We are all very much looking forward to having Blaze in Dubai – it’s something we have been planning for quite some time. I am excited to see how this multitalented team will really wow our audiences.
“We are hoping this also becomes an opportunity to inspire our local choreographers, dance instructors and students.”
Directed by Anthony van Laast, the man behind the West End hits Mamma Mia!, Sister Act and Batman Live, Blaze features choreography by some of the hottest names on the street dance scene, including Mike Song, Kenny Wormald, Lyle Beniga, Ryan Chappell, Chris Baldock and Kendra J Horsburgh. Throw in set design by Es Devlin, who’s worked with Kanye West and on Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour, it’s likely to be something special!
