Mamma Mia, what a night

Night of 70's song, dance and dress at Conference Centre

250 Kimberley women danced to the music of ABBA.

 

“I have never seen so many bad hairdos and flares in one room.” said Jennifer Roberts, principal of the Kimberley Independent School.

Last Saturday the wild women of Kimberley and the Kootenays cast away their responsible daytime personas and flocked to the Kimberley Conference Centre in creative 70’s outfits to dance the night away watching the iconic movie, Mama Mia! Two hundred and fifty glamorous “Dancing Queens” hit the floor for what turned out to be an hilarious celebration of all things ABBA.

“Anna and Frieda live again,” laughed Roberts. It was great to see so many women dancing and singing at the top of their voices among friends.

As the organizers of the event, the Kimberley Independent School sends a special thank-you to all the parents and community members who helped make the night such a success, and to the Kimberley Conference Center for hosting a seamless event.

Rachell and Sarah from New Image Hair Salon, created an on-site beauty salon providing 70’s hair dos and make-up by donation. Locks were crimped, shaped and teased for three hours adding enormously to the atmosphere and fun.

Kimberley Independent School would like to thank the following vendors for creating an authentic Greek market and providing the lovely extra service for the Mamma Mia Ladies – Ginjer Jar, Irie Bodywyrks, Purcell Organics, Asha Robertson -dirt-light-shadow, The Real Mackenzie Photo Booth and the KIS PAC clothing swap. Photos of the event can be viewed on the Facebook page of the school, and the Conference Centre.
