Yesterday’s T in the Park audience got ‘active’ onsite as they took part in the T-Dance – a fun dance routine which took place at 3pm on the festival’s Main Stage.
The 80’s retro-style mass participation dance routine was part of the year of Active Scotland event programme, supported by EventScotland. The dance routine was hosted by dancers Vince Virr (of Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake) and Jade Adamson (of Barrowland Ballet) live on stage, and guided the Main Stage crowd through the dance moves.
Paul Bush OBE, EventScotland Chief Operating Officer said: “It was fantastic to see T in the Park, one of Scotland’s biggest events, embracing the values of the year of Active Scotland by promoting the benefits of an energetic and healthy lifestyle. The T-Dance was a unique and spontaneous way to encourage and inspire festival-goers, and the people of Scotland and its visitors to get active. T in the Park is a fantastic example of why Scotland is the perfect stage for the biggest and best active events.”
The T-Dance was to none other than 80’s hip-hop floor filler ‘Push It’ by Salt-N-Pepa. The routine was choreographed by Barrowland Ballet’s Natasha Gilmore who has danced and devised for The Institute of Crazy Dancing and BBC’s The Big Dance Class, has choreographed music videos for Basement Jaxx and is a former Artist in Residence at Dance House, Glasgow.
