Flawless and The English National Ballet collaborated for an exclusive performance of the Twisted Nutcracker on Friday as part of the big Christmas lights switch-on at Bluewater.

Described by the dancers as “explosive, energetic and different”, the routine included a clever combination of street dance and ballet.

The amazing Twisted Nutcracker included some favourite Christmas jingles as well as some chart-topping hits.

The routine was magical as four ballerinas, who were inspired by Flawless, dressed in traditional tutus and danced so elegantly with the break-dancing boys, who wore festive red jackets.

Being their first light switch-on, both dance groups took to the stage together and also danced wonderfully on their own for the massive crowd. The show was a brilliant way to help kick Christmas off for Bluewater.
