Ink Dance takes over Sheffield Festival Tramlines

Sheffield based dance team Ink Dance performed to hundreds of local people at the city’s biggest and most successful inner city festival this weekend and the performance has been hailed the best show yet.

Performing to crowds, Ink dancers aged 12-27 performed in the Peace Gardens in the Sheffield City Centre as part of the city’s Tramlines festival. It would be the dance group’s fifth time taking to the festival’s stage after the team made their first appearance back in 2013.

This was the first year that INK’s younger team, Ink Movement Academy (IMA), performed at Tramlines. IMA, with dancers aged 12-18, performed an impressive set to the audience which included lots of energy, choreography and precise execution.

Following IMA, Elite, who train every Sunday afternoon with choreographer Michael Lowry, took to the stage. The set had a commercial vibe with lots of head whips, impressive transitions, tight choreography... and sass!

Founded by lead choreographer Suzy Dyson in 2012, Ink specialises in hip hop and commercial styles showcasing performances all across the city. Ink provides a fun, welcoming and progressive training environment for young people to perform, dance and develop as dancers.

Ink are now preparing for their next summer performance at Pride Festival and are set to bring something new to the stage as Ink’s new team ‘Protege’ make their debut. Protege specialise in jazz and commercial heels styles and promise to bring something different to the floor this weekend.

Catch Ink Dance at Pride Festival at 1:20pm at Endcliffe Park on the main stage this Saturday (29 July).
