Dalston Dances In The Square
Dancing in the Square had Gillett Square in Dalston alive and kicking and doing the running man on Saturday afternoon. We turned up in time for a kickass hip hop dance performance from the endlessly energetic all female b.supreme which turned into a mass streetdance workshop with locals from ages 4 to 50+ taking to the stage to slide, bubble, criss-cross and bogle with some seizing the opportunity to do their own thing and freestyle their arses off to whooping acclaim at the end. We left the high camp, neon green vision of Boogaloo Stu and Miss High Kick Dance teaching the Square to bounce samba style with line dancing, West African dance and drumming and a tea dance to a swing band yet to come.
