Blaze: The Street Dance Sensation reviews
Entertainment Focus 3/5
The choreography is generally well-executed but doesn’t have an easy flow. Perhaps the use of different choreographers gives the show a disjointed feel but the energy really only takes over in the final freestyle section where the dancers get a chance to show what they’re made of. Read full review
‘Blaze’ definitely adheres to a younger demographic, bred on the phenomenon of modern dance films like Step Up and the variety of reality shows such as Britain’s Got Talent. You cannot help though to be drawn in to the exhilarating choreography and thumping beat of the music. Read full review
As one big live interactive MTV music video party, the beauty of Blaze is that it is dance for the audience’s sake. Pull on your trainers, get down to the Peacock and be part of it. Read full review
Time Out 3/5
