Congress Theatre, Eastbourne: Tuesday 19th – Saturday 23rd August
It took me a while to get my head round the fact that this show was purely about the dancing and singing – there was no narrative thread holding things together. But the Spirit of the Dance is exactly what it says! From the start, the audience was wowed with dazzling lights, glitzy costumes and top-quality dances.
The performance was packed with high-energy, precision-perfect dances from a wide range of styles and traditions; this gave it variety and spice aplenty, with some stunning and jaw-dropping set-pieces.
This is a real feel-good show. By the end, people were on their feet, clapping and shouting for more. It’s a great way to spend a summer evening that leaves you buzzing with joy.
