Sugar dance by Linda Florence


Wallpaper designer Linda Florence created a patterned dance floor of sieved icing sugar at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, which served as a stage for a performance by ballroom dancers.

As they moved, the dancers' feet created new patterns in the sugar, which had been dusted over the floor using stencils.

The sugar dance - officially called the One of a Kind Tea Dance - took place last month as part of the V&A's Friday Late event on 25 January.

    Looks really interesting. So the sugar was actually on the dancefloor, not underneath it? That’s incredible.

    Thats really inventive, I’m curious though, what shoes did they wear since if they were wearing ballroom shoes wouldn’t that have ruined them?
