Direct from Cuba, the Arts Centre Gold Coast is the venue for a show that has taken Europe by storm with sell out performances from Sydney and Singapore to Berlin, Vienna, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich, Paris and London. Ballet Revolucion is the fusion of No 1 hits from Usher, Shakira, Beyonce, Enrique Inglesias, J-Lo, Prince, Chris Brown and more, with classical and contemporary dancers performing the infectious rhythms of Latin-America. It's billed as an "explosive, intensive, sensual and impressively athletic performance, full of raw energy with a distinctly Cuban flavor." It comes together to offer the audience a mix of contemporary dance, brilliant ballet, powerful street dance and hip hop, in what sounds like real Ballet with Attitude.

The cast and the live band have been brought together under the original eye of the "Creatives" and the result is "Unbridled energy, passion, athleticism and infectious joy" (The Stage, UK). The Daily Express, after sold out performances in London, summarized the show as: "dazzlingly fast-paced, humorous and sizzling hot blooded".
