Ballet Boyz at Northern Stage did not have traditional ballet but I knew that in advance, as did the large and keen audience. As a dance group of nearly 20 years they specialise in contemporary ballet ie very modern. The skills were honed in the school of ballet but delivered in a very modern way.

The performance split to two dance routines was superbly crafted and delivered by a very talented cast of 6, to some excellent music. The first routine was structured around a framed cube allowing an input of gymnastic style moves to the highly synchronised routine that was continuously creative. The 2nd routine was much more sensitive reflecting emotional exchange between the dancers mainly performing as duos.
