The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Front Page - Pic­tures: PAUL CAR­RACHER

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’. Peo­ple can visit www. ar­tiswim­mera.com for more in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing a sched­ule of events.
