A Night with Boy Blue

Boy Blue

It’s time to celebrate with the Boy Blue family. Join us as more than 100 performers, trained under the award-winning hip-hop dance group, present an empowering showcase guaranteed to blow you away.

Pumping musical arrangements fill the auditorium. Formations of dancers take to the stage in a succession of intricately choreographed set pieces, the movement thrilling, the precision impressive and the energy palpable. Soon the atmosphere among the audience is infectious. 

Despite touring remarkable theatre productions around the world, Boy Blue’s founders Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy and Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante are happiest in the training room, mentoring the next generation of talent. With groundbreaking choreography, original compositions and incredible young artists, A Night with Boy Blue highlights the calibre of dancing emerging from the company that has been at the forefront of presenting hip-hop as an art form in its own right. 

Boy Blue are Barbican Artistic Associates. In 2018, there is another chance to see Blak Whyte Gray after the production’s five-star-rated premiere at the Barbican and its Edinburgh run in 2017.
