Reviewer Garry Platt

BounceThis show had the biggest queue of any performance I have so far seen on the fringe and the biggest performance space; I also had probably the worst seats with side stage lighting being beamed straight into my face, lovely. The show is meant to bring us the latest in terms of street dancing, break dancing and any other current popular form of tap or jive. The show is also meant to portray the talents of youngsters straight off the streets of New York and what this type dancing can really deliver in terms of entertainment and impact. The audiences it must be said love it indeed they get a standing ovation at the end. But I have to say that whilst they deserve one curtain call they do not deserve the audience melt down that they get.

The show runs on energy and not much else which is fine, but watching the show is rather like drinking a can of fizzy drink, once the pop has gone there’s not much else left. These performers can do the dance, walk the talk and strike every clichéd pose in the book and if that’s your bag this is your show.
Runs Until 26 August not 20
