Rock the Ballet will play a three-week London season at the Peacock Theatre from 10 June to 28 June 2014.
The Bad Boys of Dance are also scheduled to return to the West End in March 2015 with their rock and pop-influenced ballet Romeo & Juliet, featuring songs from Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and LMFAO.
