Watch the amazing children of idance come back to life after lockdown in this Thriller ensemble put together in just 4 weeks before another lockdown meant Hertfordshire's idancers had to stay at home again.
When the Covid-19 pandemic hit the UK in the spring of 2020, strict lockdown measures were introduced and dancers had to stay at home. idance of Codicote, Hertfordshire finally reopened in September 2020, and Laura and her dancers were desperate to have some crazy fun after all the quiet times! They decided to try to put on some sort of remote show for the local community, AND help the children hit hardest by the virus - all under the confines of continued restrictions which said no to shows, watching-weeks, and even trick or treating.
Here they are - braving the cold dancing outside to reduce the chances of transmission, dancing for cameras rather than families, looking spooktastic thanks to the incredible creativity of the children and their parents/carers in a new world where we can no longer giggle doing each other's hair and make-up in indoors.
ENJOY! And please do text or donate @ www.danceaid.org to help the children hit hardest by the virus ... The children in this film are the lucky ones.
