UEL dance students’ right royal performance at Buckingham Palace
Tourists were stopped in their tracks when a group of UEL students staged a “royal flashmob” outside Buckingham Palace.
Around 130 dancers emerged from all sections of the crowd to perform a four-minute routine based on Romeo and Juliet.
The event had been planned with the Palace to coincide with a reception by the Queen for young people in the performing arts.
UEL dance student Lucy Sam said: “The choreography had been inspired by the royal wedding and explored romance using urban dance techniques.
“Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the crowd loved it.”
