Dance4 in the Park was filled with fun activities and experiences for the whole family. With an eye catching stripy helter skelter and bouncy castle, children and families came from around the local Sneinton and St Ann’s areas to enjoy a fantastic free event in their local park.

The main attraction was a performance with five synchronised dancing lawn mowers.  The Wild Grass performance by Dog Kennel Hill Project was performed three times throughout the day with audiences of over 250 in total including children, parents and grandparents from the local community.

Other activities kept the park buzzing throughout the day, including a popular demonstration by Jump Parkour athletes followed by over 30 children trying out some spectacular jumping skills in a workshop. Skate Nottingham were busy throughout the day with ParkLives beginners skate session followed by the over 18’s competition which saw three skaters winning a trip to Malmo, Sweden to compete in an international skate competition. There was also dance workshops in different styles taking place in Dance4’s iC4C building, all ages from babies to grandparents got active and tried out some new creative ideas throughout the day.
