BAD BOYS OF DANCE coming to Daytona

Audiences will be brought to their feet with Rasta Thomas’ Bad Boys of Dance Sunday, April 25 at 7 p.m. at the Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach!
Ballet superstar, gold medalist and Broadway star of Billy Joel/Twyla Tharp’s Movin’ Out, Rasta Thomas wants to show you that men can dance. His troupe, Bad Boys of Dance, features the most versatile male dancers on the planet, including dancers from TV’s hit show So You Think You Can Dance. These techno wonders can and do anything and everything, fusing high energy hip-hop, terrific tap dance, jazz and contemporary ballet into one awe-inspiring performance, wowing audiences worldwide.
Rasta Thomas founded the Bad Boys of Dance (BBD) in 2007 as a vehicle to push the boundaries of male dancing. BBD is a virtuoso troupe of some of the world’s best male dancers, hand-picked for their extraordinary physical talents and artistry.
BBD charms older audiences and attracts young audiences by its jaw-dropping pyrotechnics, featuring multiple pirouettes, soaring leaps, 180 degree extensions, capoeira kicks, one-handed inversions, flamboyant acrobatic flips, and flares. Each performer has a style, attitude, and aura similar to a punk rock band member or MTV star. From Mohawks to shaved heads to top hats to jeans, BBD aims to bring concert dance into the 21st century.
Music ranges from Astor Piazzolla to Benny Goodman, Maria Callas to Michael Jackson, and choreography is by Rasta Thomas and Adrienne Canterna-Thomas (his wife and ballet gold medalist).
