Street dance superstars and Britain’s Got Talent finalists Flawless will be coming to the Orchard Theatre next month as part of a major UK tour.
Commencing in September, Flawless will be travelling the length and breadth of the country to deliver the Chase the Dream tour to a staggering total of 45 venues across three months.
Drawing to a close with a spectacular grand finale at Indigo at the O2, performances promise to be feel-good fun for the whole family.
Drawing influence from distinguished dance icons such as Michael Jackson, James Brown and Gene Kelly, Flawless stormed onto the scene in 2004 as an embodiment of Marlon ‘Swoosh’ Wallen’s vision of mirroring his idols and inspiring the masses with his dazzling passion for dance.
Going on to take top prize at the World Dance Champions twice, this goal was certainly achieved.
The group were hurled into the spotlight as 2009 stars of Britain’s Got Talent, esteemed for their jaw dropping signature spins, splits and flips. Having firmly cemented themselves as pioneers of their genre, their formidable portfolio includes starring in the smash hit movie franchise Street Dance and performing for the Royal Family.
Marlon said: “The inspiration for the tour comes from our journey as Flawless, we have all faced different struggles individually and we all came together focusing on our dream and we are today, so we are passionate about encouraging and inspiring others to do the same in anything they want to do.
“Sometimes people face things that prevents them from doing what they love to do and we are here to say keep going and never stop! Love what you do and do what you love!”
The group said they have been preparing every day with rehearsals as well as training to stay fit and eating healthy food.
When asked if he was excited to start the tour, Marlon said: “Extremely excited!
“It’s a show filled with so much and its available to all ages.”
Marlon said that audiences can “expect the unexpected” when they come to see the show.
“This will be a rollercoaster journey giving you different emotions, from being excited, sad or even blown away,” he said.
“But most importantly expect to walk away with a personal message to yourself.”
The group starred in Britain’s Got Talent nine years ago, and since competing in the popular show the group have seen their lives change.
“Britain’s Got Talent gave us the national platform which allowed us to see the world,” said Marlon.
“We are forever grateful and humbled by all our accomplishments.”
Since that time, the group have continued to develop their skills and work harder.
Marlon said: “We go by the name Flawless because we always strive for perfection, so we will challenge ourselves to better every show we do, which would include our dance skills and everything else.”
When asked what advice he would give to other dance groups or individuals hoping to become as big as Flawless, Marlon said: “chase the dream, not the competition!”
He added that the group are looking forward to coming to Dartford.
He said: “It’s been a while and we can wait! Not everyone gets a chance to see us live and that’s what we love to do - so Dartford get ready!”
The Chase the Dream: The Reboot shows centre around an intergalactic dream ship and the lives of 10 big dreamers who are optimistically longing for the chance to accomplish their ultimate dance fantasy.
However, tensions rise as their dream slowly descends into their worst nightmare.
Flawless are coming to the Orchard Theatre in Home Gardens on September 24.
