Dancehall archiveDancehall charts the story of Doncaster from the dancefloor. Bringing to life dance floor crazes and fashion trends from across the decades, Dancehall shares real hidden stories of Doncaster's people. First dances at the Co-op Ballroom through to smooches at Top Rank. Boy on one side of the tracks meets girl from the other at Romeo and Juliet's, whilst The Beatles play St James's baths, the Sex Pistols storm Outlook and Bowie rocks Silver Street. Broken heels at Seventh Heaven to broken hearts at Parklands. From dancing through wars hoping soldiers would come home to keeping going through the strikes. It's the moves made through sixteen Prime Minister's and massive social change. It's throwing down shapes when your horse won at the St Leger and Dads awkwardly dancing at that street party for the Queen's coronation. It's children in Saturday morning classes stepping on stage for the first time, and revellers on Saturday night floors having one last drink. With a soundtrack playing the music of our time, spanning the last eighty years and featuring a professional cast alongside a large community ensemble, Dancehall dances through the decades to revive memories and relive Doncaster's history. The show builds on the success of Cast's first home-grown productions, The Glee Club in 2013 and Barry Hines' Kes in 2014, incorporating stories from the heart of the community.
