Virginia tattoo day 11 - 27th Apr 2018

Virginia tattoo day 11

Today was another early start at 6:30am for our 2nd morning show for more school kids, this was just the start of a very long day ahead. We had a bit of free time for shopping of course but headed back quickly for a performance by the dance company at a local church. We performed rhythm & blue and blood on the loch which everyone throughly enjoyed. This was also the place of the Highland Dance Company Of NZ’s 2nd ever meeting which is conveniently held every 4 Years in Virginia. Then straight afterwards we all danced at the hullabaloo festival outside the scope arena, this was a taster of the acts in the tattoo. The dances we performed included rhythm & blue, wintry Sunday reel, blood on the loch and our flash mob which were all hits with the crowds. Shortly after this we had yet another quick change before the opening night of the Tattoo in front of a full house. Being the most important night of the Tattoo the pressure was on to put on the perfect performance. Everyone exceeded expectations and the entire show was spectacular. Energy levels were high and we all celebrated by dancing amongst some of the other international performers who we have now made friends with. Hopefully the video from tonight is the one you will all see at home, but for now we are off to bed for another full on day tomorrow.
