Comments from the visitors book

The Collective Nonsense team presented a fun reinterpretation of the 1950’s Tea Dance which toured local parks and playing fields. A finely decorated marquee sat by an outdoor dance area surrounded by tables and chairs complete with table cloths and waitress service. Traditional high teas were served (with classic cucumber sandwiches) while dance classes taught disco and lindy hop. Visitors made use of the huge boxes of dressing up clothes and wigs to create their own T-Dance characters while DJ Grubb entertained with fine afternoon tunes. The T-Dance was held in the Auchencairn, Creetown and Moniaive villages in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.

Community Workshops

During the week before each event, workshops were help with local primary school children. Children had the chance to decorate hats and cakes and learn dances in preparation for the T-Dance.
