The jingle dress

Akinleye, Adesola ORCID: (2011) The jingle dress. [Performance]


The Jingle Dress, choreographed by Adesola Akinleye, is a new and exciting dance show, which celebrates ‘being who you are’ and ‘finding your own special path’. Inspired by Native American beliefs, the show will reveal to children and young people that everyone has their own special gifts inherited from the people and places around them. A jingle dress is a traditional Native American dress that when worn to dance in, makes a sound as you move, people say the dress sings as you dance. Rayleen has been left a jingle dress by her Grandma but her dress does not sing. With the help of her two friends she needs to find her own way to make her dress sing, her own unique dance.

The show is accompanied by workshops, which explore the themes of the show, drawing on Native American and other traditional cultures.
