A Swinging Time was had by all!
Guest post by Twin Swing
The year ended with a BANG at Gigi’s Bar in Mayfair where we performed for an array of delightfully dressed guests! The real highlight of the evening was meeting Debbie Moore, OBE and founder of Pineapple Dance Studios, a truly inspirational lady!
Into the Hoods: Remixed is the newly revamped version of the award-winning production that stormed the West End in 2008.
Under the direction of Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Kate Prince, the much-loved show returns to the stage with all the wit and charm of the original, updated for 2016 with new choreography, a remixed soundtrack and fresh designs.
Set in the ‘Ruff Endz Estate’, the story follows two lost school children who have been tasked to find an iPhone as white as milk, trainers as pure as gold, a hoodie as red as blood and some weave as yellow as corn.
