Jake Athanasiades Dance Room's Carnival Dance was just Spectacular! The carnival costumes  were absolutely stunning! Every detail of the costumes had been carefully crafted, with intricate beading, embroidery, and embellishments that caught the light and sparkled as the dancers moved across the floor. The colours were rich and vibrant, with a kaleidoscope of hues that dazzled the eyes. Feathers, sequins, and glitter added to the overall effect, making the costumes seem almost magical in their beauty. The sheer amount of work that had gone into each costume was evident, and it was clear that every dancer had been carefully dressed to create a cohesive, dazzling overall look for the show.

The first carnival vehicle at was truly a sight to behold! It was a large, towering statue that represented the carnival king, with dark hair and piercing blue eyes. The statue was adorned with intricate details and vibrant colours, making it a truly stunning centrepiece of the parade. 

At the back of the statue was a massive spinning golden wheel. The wheel represented the sun and was positioned behind the carnival king, providing a beautiful backdrop for the dancing carnival queen who was twirling and spinning in front of the statue. People crowded around the vehicle, taking pictures and waving, caught up in the excitement of the moment. The sheer size and intricacy of the statue was truly impressive, and it set the tone for the rest of the show, promising a colourful, vibrant, and unforgettable experience for all those in attendance.
