“Engaging, entertaining and accessible.” - The Scotsman
Kenneth MacMillan’s Elite Syncopations is an irresistible carnival of colourful characters.
A smart, sassy and witty romp, dancers in dazzling costumes playfully flirt and vie with each other amid a whirl of 1920s dance hall glitz. Set to a series of popular ragtime tunes, the lively pace and rousing energy will send you home smiling.
“It’s sassy, it’s slick and it shimmies with delicious mischief” - The Herald *****
