Danbury Dance Troupe Has The Time Of Their Lives With The Wiggles
This week a group of young Danbury dancers rocked it when they got a chance to dance with the children's entertainment group the Wiggles.
I'm sure you know who the Wiggles are -- maybe you grew up watching them, or your kids watched them. According to a post on the school's Facebook page, this week a group of dancers from Ashurst Academy of Dance got the chance of a lifetime when they had an opportunity to dance with the group at a sold out show in New Jersey.
In front of a crowd of 2,500, four girls from the dance studio, Lucy Lowman (Ridgefield), Caroline Morneau (Danbury), Adeline Gibowicz (Danbury) and Vivian Eaton (Newtown) took the stage and performed a traditional Irish dance piece, a light jig, with Emma Wiggle, who is an Irish dancer herself.
Check out the video from the performance:
The Wiggles are an Australia based group that was originally founded in 1991. They are made up of four members, and other characters such as Dorothy the Dinosaur, Wags the Dog and Captain Feathersword. They can be seen on TV, on Universal Kids, as well as Hulu, YouTube and through iTunes.
The Ashurst Dance Academy is based in Newtown, but has locations in Danbury and Southbury.
