Carnival Expo – 2015

Carnival Expo – 2015

Dimensions team love to do performances and we collaborated with Carnival Expo and Pannation steel Pan Band to create a performance for the Carnival event. This was an amazing experience, where all ages of the Dimensions team got together to perform with the Steel Pan Band. Chris storey and his band worked with us, which took patience having to scheduling our practices with the Pan Bands rehearsals.

On the day the Dimensions team opened the performance, with a Street mix with a caribbean twist. All enjoyed the performance and were excited to change and dance with Pannation. We performed to Krosyah’s Pump me Up, Bunji Garlin’s Differentology and Machel Montano’s Like a Boss. We all had great feedback from the performance and all members waned to get involved next year. Thanks to Andrew Singh for hosting us on the day.

101 Essex Competition – 27th march 2016

101 Essex Competition

From the start of the year Dimensions ‘Infusion Dance team’ have been working towards a competition in Essex, where they will have the opportunity to compete against other young dancers and also experience what other teams are doing. Dimensions feels that students find competitions exciting and a challenge to work towards.

It was a very long day as none of our team were doing solos or duos we had to wait until the groups section, this is something that we will revise for future competitions. The team were up competing with 4 other teams and gained second place on their first attempt, we were all very proud of them. Well done Infusion!

Whitecross street Party 2015

Whitecross street Party

For this event Dimensions aimed to put on a workshop for the public and also perform a closing parade for the Street party. Dimensions worked with Spectrum Youth Centre to engage more people into joining the parade at the event.

On the day we held the workshop on the Spectrum Youth Stage and the Dimensions team engaged with the audience to encourage to get involved. We then started the closing parade, where the team danced and performed routines. Many for the onlookers started to join in and clapping and cheering along. Dimensions really enjoyed participating in this event. Thank to the WXSP team who put this mammoth event together and also Elaine for Spectrum for supporting the activity.

Hackney Carnival 2015

Dimensions loves Hackney carnival, the weather is always great even though it is in September and it is always well organised. All participants had a great day and we always gain additional members who were not able to come to Nottinghill, support us here. We collaborated with Soca massive Mas Band, who we have worked with on many occasions.

Our costumes were amazing and very well made so very little amendments were needed in preparation for Hackney Carnival. We followed the routed dancing and performing our routines that we had learnt. Thanks again to Hackney One Love Carnival for another amazing day.

Nottinghill Carnival 2014

Nottinghill Carnival 2015

On Sunday the weather was pretty good, with only a sprinkling of rain during the day. The Dimensions Group wore T-shirts as tradition to celebrate Mas and take in the atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed themselves and performed some of the routines we had been learning throughout the year. At judging point we performed a track, getting around the route at a perfect time in order for the team to get some rest for Monday.

 

Monday we arrived at Freston Road to see rain. We all changed into our costumes and braved the weather to celebrate our successful year of dance and culture. Unfortunately it continued to rain for the whole day, but we all danced, kept as warm as we could and performed during the routed and at judging point. The Carnival was great this year and thanks to Cocoyea Mas Band for hosting us this year.
