Six feet - Three shoes (**)
2 Spanish and 1 Scottish girls tell the public how they met and alternate their story with some Flamenco and Scottish dances. The dance was good, the girls are very energetic, but I was frankly disappointed by this show: quite disjointed and there is at most 20 minutes of dancing all together. I expected more from a Dance Base performance.

A thoroughly entertaining mash up of Scottish and Spanish dance styles performed by an engaging trio of performers led by choreographer Jen Wren. At times the production came over as perhaps a little too homespun, but there was no denying the energy on display. I was there with my sister who is an Appalachian dancer and she spent the show watching the dancers' feet, particularly in the percussive sections, and from talking with her afterwards I realised there is a universality in percussive dancing that spreads across Europe (and over the Atlantic) that was well brought out by the show.

Absolutely brilliant! One of the best Fringe shows I've ever seen. The mix of Scottish & Spanish dance was spectacular & amazing to watch along with some wonderful guitar & fiddle playing, singing and storytelling. Don't miss it!

Moving and sad, happy and joyous. At the beginning, Wren encourages the audience to clap along, stamp feet or whatever. You will not be able to resist, I guarantee. 6 Feet, 3 Shoes is a super forty minutes or so.

Edinburgh Guide (3/5 stars) 49 days ago

This is performance about friendship, about culture and about change. Three performers; Charlotte Matthiessen, Leticia Piruletas, David Connah and Amy Geddes, one Scottish and two Spanish. The show illustrates how these three came together and intrigued by the other's culture and their approach to dance, life and well, everything. They...
