“Hilarious gestural deconstruction… performed with verve and panache”

Part performance, part social dance, Spiltmilk say Dance reinvents social dance crazes that have swept dancefloors all over the world, the kind of dances we all end up doing at discos, weddings and family gatherings.

It is a show of two halves. The first half of the evening sees the company’s three dancers put their unique spin on familiar dance favourites; think Disco dancing to Sinatra, the YMCA to Mozart, and The Twist on chairs.

In the second half it’s your turn!

The chairs are pushed back, and everyone is invited to join in a social dance like no other, with the dancers mingling and a caller making sure you all go the same way. You’ll get to have a go at long-forgotten folk dances you learned at school, daft novelty dances you only do at weddings and elegant ballroom moves, all to some unexpected musical choices played by live musician Sam Dunkley.

Brimming with nostalgia, wit and mind boggling moves, Spiltmilk say Dance is a family friendly event with something for everyone!

The show is not currently touring, but we still occasionally perform extracts and can lead social dances with live music at a range of events. To enquire about this, get in touch using the details on the Contact page.

Their moves are timed to perfection
