The word ballet conjures up images of tutus and ballet flats, but the men on this ballet fusion dance company prove that ballet can be more than productions of "Swan Lake."

Starring on the June 17 episode of “America’s Got Talent” is a ballet fusion dance team from Baltimore called Bad Boys of Dance. The episode airs at 8 p.m. 

Renowned dancer Rasta Thomas founded the dance company in 2007.

According to the Bad Boys of Dance website, the company does 250 shows a year with a rotation of about 25-50 dancers a season. Thomas describes the dancers of the company as the dancers of tomorrow who can dance to any genre of music.

Their mission is to “push the boundaries of dancing to deliver the most exciting dance shows in the world.”

They have traveled around the globe performing at stages across Europe including St. Petersburg and London.
