The Elephant & Castle,
igjaw (Janet Russell, Rosie Davis, Kerry Fletcher, Frances Watt) combine the percussion & passion of dance traditions with vocal harmonies in a tight, scintillating quartet of singing & dancing talents. They use step-dancing, social dancing, mouth music, nonsense rhyme & songs from Britain & beyond for a highly distinctive performance, rekindling the links between dancers & singers, songs and dances, performers and audiences.
They say: 'We'll be singing & dancing in each part of the workshop. Everyone will be encouraged to sing & dance. There will be an option for step dancers to learn a routine. Concentrate on singing or dancing, or have a go at everything - enjoy!'
