    'Got The Skiffles' was a Big Dance funded intergenerational community dance project leading to the creation of performances for several outdoor events as part of The Holloway Arts Festival. The aim of the project was to engage participants from the local community to learn, create and perform exciting dance with professionals, for local people, and above all to have lots of fun in the process! The main inspiration for the project was 1950s Skiffle music and the creation of costumes from recycled material by a local sewing group.
    The project was be co-led by three dance professionals, Lorraine Smith (project producer and lead), Anne-Marrit Kinunen and Chris Mead.
