Direct from Havana and returning to Auckland with a new production, Ballet Revolución brings their explosive, sensual and impressively athletic performance to fill The Civic with raw Cuban energy from 17 – 21 June.

‘Unbridled energy, passion, athleticism and infectious joy’. - The Daily Telegraph

Ballet Revolución is a dance spectacular featuring eighteen of the world’s finest classical and contemporary dancers on stage with an eight-strong live Cuban band performing the infectious rhythms of Latin-America, as well as hits by Sia, Lorde, Beyoncé, Jessie J, Bruno Mars, J Lo, Prince and Rihanna.

With breath-taking twists, daring jumps and sensual moves from ballet to street dance, Ballet Revolución has already thrilled audiences in sold-out shows from Singapore to Berlin, Vienna and London.

‘Their jumps are astounding, their control is as strong as steel and their free-spirited joy for dance is infectious’. - Sunday Herald Sun, Australia

The Ballet Revolución dancers were trained at one of the world’s most prestigious dance institutions in their home country, the Escuela Nacional de Arte, with its renowned faculty of modern dance, and at the famous Escuela Nacional de Ballet for classical dance. Dance training is strongly promoted in Cuba, as dance means more than art: on the Caribbean island, it means “life”.

Leading Australian choreographer Aaron Cash, along with Cuban choreographer Roclan Gonzalez Chavez, blend thrilling contemporary moves with salsa and Cuban dance to produce a unique fusion, resulting in an explosion of unbridled passion and raw energy, with a distinctly Cuban flavour.

Don’t miss the show that ‘delivers an endorphin high’ (The Guardian, UK) as the Ballet Revolución dancers switch effortlessly from ballet and contemporary dance to powerful street dance and hip hop.

This is the dance event of 2015 – be there and feel the heat!
