SPOTLIGHT ON DANCE:
Donna Peach addresses the audience during the Inaugural Annual Dance Affair at Horsham Town Hall on Saturday night. The colourful, interactive community event was the major project for this year’s Art is... a Footprint festival, which runs until Sunday.
LET’S DANCE: The 2018 Horsham Art is… festival has started with a bang, with the Inaugural Annual Dance Affair wowing crowds at Horsham Town Hall. Fourteen community groups were involved in the production, which was a ‘part theatre performance, part get up and dance’ event. Participants and the audience revisited dances from past to present on Friday and Saturday nights, reliving the old ‘dance hall’ days. Pictured clockwise from above, Shake and Groove Dancers share the spotlight; Horsham’s Avenue Dance Studio dancers take to the floor; Inez Spriggs steps back in time with the ‘Bellboy’; audience members join the fun; Dan Witton sets the scene; and Amy Anselmi hits the floor. The festival, now in its 24th year, runs until Sunday and features an action-packed program. Organisers are hoping this year’s festival will be the ‘biggest ever’.
