After a difficult year for us all, we were finally able to return to dancing and we kicked it all off with one our favourite events – swinging outside at Spitalfields Market.
Scott on the 4th Plinth: Interview with Clive Anderson 2009
In 2009 Scott Cupit took to Trafalgar Square’s famous Fourth Plinth as part of Antony Gormley’s One And Other arts project, stopping hundreds of rush hour commuters in their tracks as he gave an impromptu swing dance class. About 100 students from Swing Patrol came along to perform with Scott. More than 14,000 people applied for their chance to spend an hour on the plinth which was part of Gormley’s vision to create a unique living monument. The Evening Standard voted Scott’s hour as one of the top ten hours due to its interactive nature.
Watch the video to see Clive Anderson’s interview with Scott about his involvement in the project for British Sky TV.
