Beats On Pointe - Peacock Theatre

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

BEATS On Pointe, the thrilling dance spectacular from Australia that fuses street dance and ballet, returns to the Peacock Theatre from May 21 to June 16, 2019.

Two opposing dance worlds collide in this exuberant show as a high energy cast of classical ballet and street dancers go toe-to-toe in a glorious mash-up of dance styles.

Dynamic dance combined with music and song, beat-boxing and a touch of comedy brings this dazzling, colourful show back to the Peacock Theatre for a four-week run following its successful week-long Peacock debut in February 2018.

Beats on Pointe is guaranteed to appeal to audiences of all ages including fans of all forms of dance and those who are new to dance shows – it’s all here! The show fairly bursts with light, talent and energy!

Australia’s top dancers expertly bring two distinctive dance genres to the stage: edgy, modern ballet and the athletic thrill of street dance while the soundtrack is second to none – 70s grooves segue seamlessly into contemporary hits to emphasise the action and drive the story.

The show has been thrilling audiences in Australia and is certain to do the same for Londoners and visitors to the capital.

Beats on Pointe is produced by the Australian dance company, Masters of Choreography which was formed by Jennifer and Milo Masters in 2014.

Jennifer Masters, the show’s director, producer, writer and director of choreography said: “Beats on Pointe is a great showcase of not only the talent we have in Australia, but also how diverse and inclusive dance truly is. Our dancers have outdone themselves with this show and the merging of the two styles to integrate in a way that looks good, makes sense and keeps audiences engaged, has been an amazing experience for everyone involved.

“The response to Beats on Pointe has been incredible and it’s a dream come true to be selling out in over seven countries across three continents including heading back to the Peacock Theatre in London – which we love!”

Chief ballet choreographer is dancer and elite gymnast Emma Vaiano; street dance choreography is by Melbourne-based Phill Haddad who has also contributed poetic text, while hip-hop choreography is by New Zealander Alexander Lima.

Performers in Beats On Pointe at the Peacock are: Brodie Chesher, Burak Cagin, Georgia Mae Rutland, Jake Paul Green, Jamane Virdo, Kealy Fouracre, Kelly Hemsley, Lissy Jaye, Natalie Debono, Oriana Siew-Kim, Phillip Egan and Taylor Diamond-Lord.
