Streetdance and the English National Ballet in new show Against Time.
Streetdance and the English National Ballet in new show Against Time.

Flawless and the English National Ballet will be appearing in the show Against Time at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on June 9-10 as streetdance goes classical.

Following a spectacular performance at Peace One Day at the O2 last year, English National Ballet and World Dance champions Flawless collaborate again in an exciting new show, fusing streetdance, acrobatics and ballet.

Against Time follows the battle between the students of The Academy of Excellence and an evil time manipulator who plans to end dance by stopping time.

Four of the students discover his journal and realise they have to stop him before it’s too late. In a race against time, the four battle against the odds to uncover the mystery and solve the puzzle…

Their quest takes them on a thrilling journey which sees the boys from Flawless and the ballerinas from English National Ballet celebrate all that is great about dance.

Against Time is a co-production between English National Ballet and World Dance Management and has been created by Flawless and Jenna Lee, soloist and choreographer at English National Ballet. Against Time is generously supported by M·A·C and Swarovski.

Flawless are the stars of the hit movie StreetDance and the sequel StreetDance 2, as well as being pioneers of the UK streetdance scene since winning the World Dance Championship.

They were finalists of Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 where Simon Cowell said they were “one of the best things I have ever seen in my life!” 

Now in huge demand for their breathtaking shows, Flawless were invited to perform for The Queen at Buckingham Palace and recently completed a 110 date UK tour of Chase the Dream, which attracted rave reviews.

English National Ballet is one of the world’s great ballet companies, taking classical ballet of the highest quality to the widest audience. The company performs large scale, high quality classical ballet nationally and internationally, as well as breaking preconceptions about ballet with performances at Camp Bestival and Bestival.
