Divine – Can Can Dancers | UK
Divine Company performs high-end entertainment at seriously amazing events. Founded in 1999, we are the largest company of it’s kind in the UK. All of our work is produced in-house and is unique to us. We have an extravagant wardrobe of spectacular and innovative costumes and props, and an equally brilliant company of exceptional artists. Our clients receive impeccable, level-headed service and a noteworthy range of exclusive perks.
We value excellence, creativity and adaptability and are known for the warmth and professionalism of our artists, both during the performance and (equally importantly) behind the scenes. We work with the unique requirements of each event, are willing and able to adapt, and offer a consistent, reliable, trustworthy service. Always going the extra mile has enabled us to build an outstanding and diverse portfolio. Our artists have high skill levels across multiple disciplines. This in combination with our large wardrobe allows us to offer skill and costume changes for every booking, at no additional cost. The large size of the company also means we virtually always have performers available, even at short notice or during the busiest times of the year.
In addition to being totally unique, our costumes have been painstakingly designed to allow for quick changes, light travel, and variations of styling. Many can be accessorised with detachable detailing which allows us to effortlessly match your theme and colour palate. Lights and wearable sound systems can be added to any of our costumes. Our artists are able to perform ambient or staged pieces, choreographed or improvised, and are highly adept at tailoring the performance to the space upon arrival. Our unique choreographic repertoire allows unparalleled flexibility; it works in different sized and shaped spaces and can be set to different music, allowing us to entirely transform the mood of a piece and work to your choice of soundtrack if preferred. Because of this we are able to offer tailor-made staged performance for every event with no stress, no fuss and no rehearsal fees. We proudly offer charitable discounts, and are always keen to assist good causes. In addition, we offer discounts for groups of artists or runs of dates.
Up to 3 sets per artist with costume/skill changes between sets as required. Ambient: Illuminated ribbons 10 mins. Contortion 15 mins. Hoop, gymnastics, acrobatics, ribbons, ballet en pointe 20 mins.

We request stage dimensions in advance for choreographed performance.
“The artists were superb last night and went down a treat in the Vivienne Westwood ‘Wedding Dress’ so thank you very much. Please pass on my thanks. All at Vivienne Westwood were very impressed with them.”
— Ami Jade Cadillac, Lavish Design
“The performers were absolutely fantastic, professional, flexible and accommodating, a real pleasure to work with. The performance conditions and stage were difficult but they handled it without complaint. I told all of them after the event how incredibly grateful we were, but please pass that on again from us. Their performances were really fantastic and I know that the audience enjoyed the entertainment immensely.”
— Client, Contraband International
