Professional dancer, dance teacher and choreographer
After a successful premiere and five star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe, FLASH MOB has now transferred to London’s West End at the Peacock Theatre. I am currently half way through my time here and loving every minute… my only complaint would be that it’s going too fast! To perform in the West End is literally a dream come true, I feel so happy and grateful to have had the opportunity to be involved in this. I remember watching my first show at Sadler’s Wells at the age of 17 on a college trip, and being in awe of the dancers on stage. I never thought 7 years on I would be performing on that very stage too!
It’s been great after Edinburgh to get back in the studio and develop the show even more.
It’s inspiring to be performing alongside so many talented performers who are all at a high level within their own dance style. It has encouraged me to keep on working on other dance styles I enjoy doing.

FLASHMOB - Where dance worlds collide!
“For every self-indulgent, esoteric, audience alienating, dance show ever performed, FLASH MOB is the antidote. This is a dance mob that-s flash – although for flash read talented, hard-working and completely dedicated to their craft. For those who think commercial dance means leaving your artistry at the door, then the acts brought together to create (FLASH MOB) are ready to prove you wrong.”
Kelly Apter, The Scotsman 5*
After a successful premiere and five star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe, FLASH MOB now transfers to London’s West End at the Peacock Theatre, 16 October – 4 November 2012.
FLASH MOB is a multi-genre dance spectacular featuring the talented performers from some of television’s best dance reality shows. The production delivers an explosive mix of dance styles. Latin meets lockin’, contemporary goes Celtic and jazz joins jump jive in a full evening performance that will literally have the audience on their feet and dancing in the aisles. As well as performing in their own right, each of the artistes will also demonstrate how all dance genres can come together fusing various styles to simply celebrate the joy of movement, whatever your dance background and culture.
New Cast Members
A new addition for the West End performances, headlining the show will be Charlie Bruce, the winner of the BBC’s prime-time dance contest So You Think You Can Dance? Joining her will be The Elektrolytes, the recently announced winners of Randy Jackson’s America’s Best Dance crew on MTV. This will be their first appearance outside America and their spectacular routines and innovative choreography are sure to have dance fans on the edge of their seats at The Peacock Theatre!
FLASH MOB is packed with energy as stars including contemporary dance duo Alleviate and edgy Irish dancers Brosena, both from Sky 1′s Got To Dance, take to the stage for the first showcase of its kind for reality TV dance performers. Led by acclaimed Artistic Director Gary Lloyd, who has choreographed and directed Thriller Live in the West End, American Idols Live, Oh What A Night! and Gary has also worked with international stars including Will Young and Girls Aloud and on shows including The X-Factor and the Royal Variety Performance.
