It's Dance Month at Sternberg Clarke, during which we'll be celebrating the best of the best in Dance based entertainment in Corporate Events. But this interest in Dance isn't a new thing or a flash in the pan - in fact we've been booking dance acts at corporate events for, like, ages and anyone who says we haven't is a filthy liar and you shouldn't be hanging out with them.
To prove the depths of our ongoing devotion to the medium of Dance, we've collected a few previous events, reviews and blogs where Dance has fetured Prominently in the past. Read on to find out more.
Never one to shy away from a Zeitgeist (or bandwagon as it's sometimes cruelly called) we rode the wave of 'Strictly Come Dancing Love' that courses through the event industry around the time of the Live Final at Christmas, supplying two pairs of Dancers who competed for the audience's adoration with the help of long-time SC Cover Band faves Carte Blanche.
We're true believers in the Flashmob at Corporate Events - a risky proposition to be sure, but one that can pay off in spades if it's done right and this event at Japanese restaurant Aqua was done all kinds of right. Performing a spontaneous song and dance routine to a few tunes from American TV show Glee, our group Tonacity blew guests away before a performance from Abba tribute act The FABBA girls.
Why should the acts get to have all the dancing fun? For a recent private event at the beautiful Kensington Palace, we took dance themed entertainment off the stage and into the audience with a massive Swing Dance Lesson accompanied by the retro sounds of function band Bellissima and early-jazz merchants New Hot Cross Club.
Mere weeks after joining the Sternberg Clarke Team, Mr Thomas Gorton displayed the extent of his critical chops with an incisive review of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company's latest show. See, it's not just in Dance month that we go out looking for new dance acts... entertainment never sleeps.. etc...
Alice is a helpful gal, always willing to offer her opinions on wedding entertainment and all that goes with it. So a while back, she was kind enough to share her thoughts on what makes the perfect first dance. Whether you're a couple of rug-cutting jitter-bugs with no qualms about throwing some shapes in front of your nearest and dearest or you're cursed with two left feet, this will be of interest.
Another review with a slightly racier subject. Miss Polly Rae and her Hurly Burly Girls have been causing transatlantic waves with a playful, humorous and just plain tantalising modern Burlesque show that expertly treads the line of taste that so many Burlesque shows can step right over. Read on in horror as a nice young boy from the North West of England attempts to grapple with on stage nudity under the guise of 'work'.
We're always happy to feature more traditional forms of entertainment at events, but sometimes it's good to mix things up a little. For this event, we took the ever-so-prim-and-proper art of Ballet and mixed it with the black sheep of the dance family, Pole Dancing, to create an all new form of dance performance.
