Wellies on at WOMAD 2017

Having fallen in love with WOMAD Festival last year, I was determined that we would perform this year. After a few emails and phone calls, my wish came true and the festival organisers invited us to perform at Molly's Bar, a large stage dedicated to anything that has a trumpet in it and all things swing.

I arrived first thing on Friday morning with Savoy Kicks Dancer Rowena and we welcomed by the tiniest bit of rain. We met with Fiona and we quickly swapped our waterproofs for playsuits and donned out wellies to walk up to the stage.

On arrival we were greeted by fantastic staff who had wireless headsets waiting for us and an amazing sound system.

Savoy Kicks and I Charleston Brighton at WOMAD 2017

As soon as we stepped out on stage, over a100 people l appeared out of nowhere to spend the next hour dancing with us. We kicked off with a dance demo of the Charleston and taught the crowds 3 short routines.

To finish it off we ended with an upbeat electro swing dance performance whilst everyone clapped and cheered, the atmosphere was amazing. There is nothing better than having a great crowd get behind you.

Our experience at WOMAD has wet our appetite for more performances so expect big things for 2018!

See you at WOMAD 2018!
