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!

Finsbury Park Play Day

On the 1st August Dimensions dance team performed a carnival parade in Finsbury Park to start the opening of a new play area with Councillor Hearn.It was a great day and all dancers enjoyed the day and attracted new audiences to carnival and the projects that Dimensions creates.

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.

Nottinghill Carnival – 2018

For this year’s Nottinghill Carnival, Dimension’s wanted to be a part of the Carnival in a different way. For 2018 we aimed to be apart of the Opening Ceremony for the Carnival, so we could have more of a role and also impact many audience members that we were not able to access through being in a band.

The day had a great atmostsphere and everyone was excited for the Carnival day to start. We were part of a packed opening ceremony with performances from dance groups, singer Alexandra Burke to name a few.

Due to the success of the performance, we were featured on BBC News and London Live.

Thanks to all the performers that worked hard for months to create the performance piece, Matthew from CVT who supported us throughout and National Lottery for Funding the ‘Showtime’ project.

Hackney Kids Carnival – 2018

This year Hackney Council started a new Kids Carnival. Dimensions worked with Colvestone Primary over 4 weeks to prepare a dance piece for the Carnival day.

Dimensions worked with the Year 4 class, who were very excited for the opportunity to learn something new and also perform for their school, parents and public. The class worked worked hard to put together ‘themed’ Cabaret’ dance pieces.

On the day the Year 4 group was supported by Dimension’s very own dance troop. Both groups worked together to put on a great performance for the public.

The classes hard graft was rewarded, as they were awarded ‘Best Dance’ and were over-welmed at the trophy presentation.

Thanks to everyone involved that made the day a success.

Showtime Project – Awards for All

Since starting the Showtime project in October, all the members have been training at Cape Adventure Playground weekly and preparing for the carnival season.

This project was able to mix a unique group of locals, as many of the participants have not been in a dance group or even performed before. The group is also a mixture of ages and abilities, who all worked together with choreographer Gemma to create a set piece using the year’s theme.

All the practice paid off as they debuted their set piece at the UKON Children’s Celebration at the Barking Learning Centre.

The performance went great and all members went away feeling that they have accomplished something and are excited for the upcoming performances.
