Fringe-For-All - Best Dance Moment
Hands down, hands up, wherever you want to put them, this one has to go to
Universal Dance Destiny
who closed out the first half of Fringe-For-All with 3 minutes that managed to pack in what has to be almost their entire cast (but who knows? there may be more)
A grab back of ages, genders and enthnicities all sharing the stage together to the thundering rhythm of the drums and they even managed to squeeze in some spoken word there at the end with the red light shining brightly as the rest of the stage lights came down and the audience applauded vigorously (just as much in enjoyment, I think, as a signal that time was up).
And they also knew how to work the room, taking time during intermission to get the cards for their fundraiser for the Fringe show into many people's hands, including Leah Cooper, who gave it a plug during changeovers between artists in the second half.
You can find out more about them, the fundraiser, and the Fringe show
