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.”
Vice Chancellor Professor Patrick MacGhee added: “Our performing arts students certainly made an impression, deliverying their performance with huge energy and talent.”
The dance was part of a 12-week module for second year urban dance students and was organised by Big Dance.
