What an absolutely crazy day this was!!

I am SOO proud of my dancers, all over 60, who danced, swam (and sprinted) their socks off at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant outside Buckingham Palace! SUPERSTARS!!

This would not have been at all possible without Manuela from Emergency Exit Arts inviting us to join her and the wonderful Mandinga Arts team after meeting us for the first time at Visions of Recovery last July… which, by the way, was our FIRST EVER PUBLIC PERFORMANCE!

Not a bad climb of the performance ladder for 11 months!

We are truly honoured and will remember it for the rest of our lives.

We certainly kicked off the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend in style, with a double performance day!

Our Silver Swans started at Bucklebury Farm, performing twice for the lovely families of young children. We also enjoyed meeting all the animals and were being entertained ourselves by a terrific one-man band!

Then to top our lovely day off, more of our dancers joined us at Thatcham Town Council’s Beacon Lighting event. Not only did our dancers perform to thousands, but we also wore our own carnival costume creations and paraded through the field leading 50 local primary school children!

The day finished with a bang - a spectacular firework display. What an excellent start to the bank holiday weekend, and how wonderful it was to have our dance community and local community combine through cultural celebration.

Here's what we've been up to...
