The Strictly Air Ambulance dance competition is a major fundraising event for the emergency helicopter charity the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust and for the 5th year running DPL Production Lighting were asked to provide corporate event lighting and staging to ensure the dancers were always in the limelight.
The Strictly Air Ambulance Dance Show, now in its fifth year is a spectacular night of first class entertainment, starring TV celebrity pro-dancers Kevin Clifton and his dance partner Karen Hauer. Kevin was a TV finalist with Breakfast Presenter Susanna Reid and Karen reached week 7 with Hairy Biker Dave Myers. This fantastic evening of world class dancing sponsored by Medical Aviation Services (MAS) was a huge success, raising substantial funds for Essex Air Ambulanc
This year was the best one yet, with the floor to ceiling drape and star cloth with uplighters, the custom gobo on the dance floor. The dance floor was made bigger by flying the projector and screen so we were able to move the judges table back even further.
Lighting: 2 x follow spots, Mirror Ball, 8 x MAC 301 LED wash, Source 4 750w profiles, 2 x Robe 700AT spot for the custom gobos and 6 x Robe Pointes.
Kim Parker: “We all love working on this event as not only is it raising funds for a fantastic cause but the commitment the dancers put into their routines is incredible. The variety of music chosen by the dancers means we have to create some really complex lighting effects but that is what we love to do!”
Wendy Marcon, Sponsorship and Events Manager: “The sound and lighting for this event are what makes it so incredibly memorable for all who attend. Totally Sound Events work with us right from the planning stages each year and are an integral part of our event team. They do what they do so well and seemingly effortlessly – always a pleasure to work with.”
