  • 22nd September : Folk Dance Remixed host their own night at Cecil Sharp House

    It was a night of fun and frolics set in the beautiful Cecil Sharp House—the heart of English folk song and dance. The Company presented Step Hop House and a chance for all to dance with a Street Dance the Maypole workshop and our second Ceilidh Jam Session—a funked up social dance for all—it was a big hit!

    Step Hop House was part of an extraordinary anniversary show at Stratford Circus. We performed outside in Theatre Square on the 12th in the theatre at Stratford Circus on the 13th Ceilidh Jam Pop Up performances and workshops in and outside the foyer and after the show we hosted our first ever Ceilidh Jam which was a huge success!

    After being selected through Ideas Tap we planned on presenting excerpts from Step Hop House, Pop Up performances and Street Dance the Maypole Workshops at Potter’s Fields Park but got rained out!

  • 23rd August : Brick Box, Canning Town Flyover

    We were under the A13 flyover with our Street Dance the Maypole workshops. One of our most successful workshops ever! Reason being, it was made up of such a diverse crowd…adults, families, homeless people and some had a few drinks before so inhibitions were gone and people really let go and danced their hearts out!

  • 6th August : Sidmouth Folk Week

    Folk Dance Remixed were delighted to be part of the famous and fantastic Sidmouth Folk Week. We presented Step Hop House at the Children’s Festival in Blackmore Gardens, along with a Street Dance the Maypole workshop and performed an early evening show at the Bulverton. It all went down brilliantly with the audiences… and the Spooky Men’s Chorale!

    “We were delighted with all of the acts who performed, and took part,across the Children’s Festival but your performance in Blackmore Gardens was a real highlight!”
