Dance spectacular to take place at World Cup
8:00am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
RUGBY league fans heading to World Cup matches in Warrington this autumn will have something of a grand surprise to accompany them along the way.
Five hundred dancers will transform the town centre on October 27 before Samoa take on New Zealand at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.
And fans will be able to enjoy the 40 minute Window on Warrington show which promises performers aged between three and 87 as well as pyrotechnics, lights, and music.
Stacey Goodall, from Woolston, is creative director for the show.
“This is such a fantastic opportunity to get Warrington on the map.
“It will be really amazing to have this take place in the town centre, it will be a real demonstration of the town’s history,” she said.
Starting close to the skittles at Market Gate, the performers will parade fans down Horsemarket Street towards the stadium.
Intended to reflect the cultures of Warrington and Samoa, which will be based in the town for the duration of the October and November tournament, the performance will reflect similarities between the both including industry, water, and storytelling.
Stacey, who runs Fusion who already dance at Wolves home matches, says practices are going well.
“It will be nice to offer a different type of entertainment. The World Cup will celebrate the place rugby league has in our town, we are very proud of out time.
“It will be great to celebrate all the artistic talent we have in the town as well,” she said.
The two high schools, seven primary schools, 20 community groups, two universities and dance groups are all training separately but are coming together for large scale practice sessions in the town centre.
The next will be in mid September.
