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.

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.

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.
