Dimensions Carnival Project 2020

Dimensions Entertainment gained funding by the Heritage Fund and the Community Fund to provide Carnival funded activities. The workshops started in November, which had a number of returning and new members to the team, we also have new professional Choreographers to enhance the project.

The project aimed to build a professional dance team who trained and participated in activities for a number of months in order to perform at carnival shows and events to promote carnival arts and dance and keep the traditions of the carnival industry and provide a future for the carnival through new and young members learning skills and heritage.

We were successful in this project even through the wave of COVID lockdowns by continuing to complete the project outside where possible and also online and were able to do a number of outdoor events for Haringey Council and online event virtual events and workshops, including Hackney, Barking and Leicester Carnival.

Hackney Carnival 2019

For Dimensions Hackney Carnival is our epic end to our carnival season and as usual Hackney did no disappoint.

The Dimensions dance team have had great performances over the season and could not hold back the excitement for the day.

 We were able to put new choreography and concepts into practice and we had a great reception. Dimensions won 1st prize for choreography, which showed how hard all the team worked. Well done everyone!

Haringey Carnival Camp

During the summer holiday Dimensions partnered with Haringey Council to provide a Carnival Dance Camp for young people between 11 – 16 yrs old at Harris Academy Sport centre in Tottenham.

In the project we taught various styles of Caribbean dance and with a costume workshop where they were able to design their own tops for Hackney Carnival.

The project gained new members, and may of them came to join us at Hackney Carnival.

Haringey Youth Festival 2019

Dimensions dance group performed at the Lordship Rec in Tottenham in the Haringey Youth Festival on 27th July.

Even though the rain threatened to spoil the whole day the clouds held up for the team to do a carnival parade around the skate park, which was great for the team to show the different types of choreography the group had been training in.

The day turned out great and all the different organisations involved joined activities and made the day great.

UKON Children’s Carnival Celebration 2019

On an Epically Hot Summer’s day Dimensions joined many other performers and organisers on the 13th July at the UKON carnival in Barking Learning Centre. 

This was the debut of the team’s 2019 ‘A Spoonful Of Sugar’ theme for the Dimensions dance team, who performed their set piece and also led the carnival parade.

The group enjoyed the day and were all excited to do their first performance as a team. The group’s performance was well received and as part of the day we successfully introduced new audiences to the Carnival culture.

Hackney Carnival – 2018 – Main

Hackney Carnival this year was another Epic day, we collaborated with Jamboulay Mas Band. The group met at Hagerstown Park to dress, eat and practice our routines. The parade started late, but all the participants got involved and performed all the way through.

At the judging point the group performed the themed set piece, which was well recieved. Everyone who participated with us really enjoyed the Carnival day and we even had one of the dancers from Colvestone Primary who performed with us for Hackney Kids carnival.

The Dimension’s performing group were given second place for our judging point piece, which excited the team and gave them a boost for future performances.

Thanks to everyone who made the day special. For more information or to join future projects please contact us.
