A Night with Boy Blue

Boy Blue

A person is standing with their arms and mouth open. In the background a group of people stand with their arms out.

Mixing exuberant hip-hop dance displays, a joyful sense of community and the heart-thumping rhythms of an electronic score, Boy Blue’s biennial showcase always culminates in uproarious applause.

Presided over by hosts Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante and Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy, this evening assembles the entire company from the youngest pupils to professional dancers. Seventy performers flood the stage in ensembles that match taut choreography with empowering movement and irresistible musicality. Whether polished routines or politically edged pieces, you’ll be carried along by the infectious energy, vitality and wit.

Embodying Boy Blue ‘at its warmest and most inclusive’ (Independent), the family-friendly evening celebrates the pioneers of hip-hop dance theatre – and their creative mission to ‘Educate, Enlighten, Entertain’.
