A hundred years of dance crazes in a hundred minutes!
Let’s dance! The Ragroof Players present their latest participatory show, Happy Feet, in which a team of fabulous DJs and dancers take you on a non-stop dance-a-thon through the decades.
Everyone’s a part of the action as the crowd is whizzed through a dazzling dance-off led by the Ragroof team of Fabulous Flappers, Disco Divas, and Latino Groovers. Starting with a cheeky Charleston and moving through Lindy Hop, Big Band Swing, and Mambo; and then without missing a beat, on to the Rock and Roll Stroll, the Twist, the Macarena, Uptown Funk and more…
Perfect for both afternoon and evening slots outdoors at street arts festivals, HAPPY FEET brings hundreds of people together in one big snowballing Soul Train, all grooving along to a fabulous selection of dance tunes from Hokey Cokey to Gangnam Style, via Saturday Night Fever & Macarena.
No dance experience needed, no partner needed – The Ragroof Players have years of experience in drawing everyone in to the dance in an inclusive, relaxed and fun way.
Redeveloped in 2016 for outdoor touring with funding from the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund.
‘The last evening at Mintfest 2014 was a delight – 400 people gathered in Market Square, and in a very un-English way nearly all of them found themselves on their feet and moving… dancing with strangers in a variety of styles from the 1920s to the present. A magical night which really bought the community together.’
Jeremy Shine - Mint Festival Kendal
‘Happy Feet exemplifies the things we strive for as an organisation, to be fun, inclusive, entertaining and joyful. We can’t wait to have it back at Dreamland and give it a more prominent position on the park as an outdoor piece of participatory arts. What The Ragroof Players have done to involve and engage a diverse audience in the area is what makes the project so exciting, a good dance through the ages is universal to everyone regardless of your background.’
