Some Like it Hip Hop is a comical tale of love, mistaken identity and cross-dressing, inspired by Billy Wilder’s classic movie Some Like it Hot and Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. The show stars StreetDance 3D’s Teneisha Bonner, So You Think You Can Dance’s Tommy Franzen, who has also collaborated with the Royal Ballet, and Lizzie Gough.

The show is directed by ZooNation founder and Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Kate Prince, and co-written by Prince and Felix Harrison. It features original music by Josh Cohen and DJ Walde.

We started The Ballet Bag in April 2009 with the mission to prove that ballet is not stuffy, old fashioned and inaccessible; that it is quite the opposite: relevant, fresh and topical. With the aim to Give Ballet a New Spin we try to show it under a different light. When writing our capsule biographies, ballet fact cards, review roundups and commentary on social media, we cross it over with other art forms and cultural references (pop culture, cinema, rock music – ie. other things we love!).
