THE CAROUSEL CAME TO NOTTINGHAM - ASCDS FESTIVAL 2017

 

Saturday 6th May 2017 was the day the Carousel came to town.  After weeks of practice including tantrems and near tears, the Demo team took to the floor watched by a couple of hundred pairs of eyes.  Following last year's successful solo, the team had set their sights higher and we didn't disappoint.  

The performance was of a dance called "The Galloping Carousel" but with a twist.   Hugh and Joyce Porteous had written an extra section and re-named it "the Galloping Carousel Medley".  What delights were the audience in for ?  Soon all was revealed to them.   Starting with a Strathspey, moving into Jig time and ending with a circle of cheer.   Wow !!!

At the end of the dance we all agreed that we had topped last year's performance, so next year the world is our oyster !!
