‘Ballerina who Loved a B-boy’ is a non-verbal musical written and directed by Choi Yoon-Yeop. The production made its debut in December 2005 at Korea’s first B-boy theater in the nightlife hotspot of Hongdae. Since then, it has been staged all around the world while gaining national and international acclaim and following.

In this show, which features World B-boy Champion ‘Extreme Crew,’ the story of a ballerina who falls in love with a B-boy unfolds through a dynamic mix of different dance genres such as break dancing, jazz, popping and ballet. Anyone is welcome to enjoy the performance that is so full of energy and excitement that it keeps the audience members off their seats and swaying rhythmically to the show!

- Photographing and videotaping are ALLOWED during the show -


A ballerina’s classical training is frequently interrupted by the heavy noise from a nearby hip-hop square. This leads to a showdown of dancing genres, as both ballet and street dancers try to outdo one another. The ballerina then falls for the lead B-boy, and gradually grows into his world, becoming a hip-hop dancer herself in the final scene.
