DJ Lil’ Koko invited us to dance, perform and teach during her set at the Mardi Gras festivities at Pop Brixton. Dressed in purple, orange and gold we led the parade through the music to the driving rhythm of the Tunnel Chops marching band. Then back at the stage we performed three routines and taught a 20-minute solo Charleston class. We spent the rest of the afternoon dancing with people from the crowd, practising our gymnastics (occasionally being outshone by the kids!) and dropping in the odd surprise routine.
Briston Mardi Gras is such a energetic burst of colour in the grey of winter – what a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Thanks Lil’ Koko for having us. See you next year!
