Blast From The Past

Event information

A fast-paced, laugh out loud dance performance / gameshow celebrating seven decades of British pop culture, jam-packed with chart hits to remember, and fads and fashions to forget. Fun-fuelled entertainment; sheer, unserious delight. 'Has you feeling nostalgic, singing along, laughing out loud… dance but not dance.' Derby Telegraph 'Their moves are timed to perfection and it's fun.' The Stage ______________________________________________________________________ Dance Yourself Quizzy! 'Blast From The Past' takes audiences on a glitzy, fun, and sometimes silly, journey through the music, TV, fads and fashions that have shaped British pop culture since the recorded music charts began in 1952. Each year is celebrated with a dance inspired by a key event or trend that impacted life in British living rooms that year, and is accompanied by the top selling song from the year. 60 short dances set to the top 60 tracks from the last 60 years. 1966 celebrates England's World Cup victory, accompanied by Tom Jones singing 'Green Green Grass of Home', whilst 1981 harks back to Charles and Diana's wedding day, while 'Don't You Want Me' by The Human League plays. In true British style, 'Blast From The Past' invites audiences to team up and get stuck in with the fun, as the evening includes familiar rounds, brain teasers and challenges from iconic British TV game shows (such as 'Family Fortunes') - there will be prizes! Spiltmilk Dance stick a big fat ray of sunshine into the world of contemporary dance, bringing fun and intelligence in equal measure, and entertaining audiences with its distinctive brand of intricate yet charming dance. ______________________________________________________________________ 'Hilarious… performed with verve and panache.' Londondance
