Tonight was the 9th annual Massachusetts Library Association Book Cart Drill Team competition. The Robbins Library Rockin’ Robbins Book Cart Drill Team have been regular competitors since the first annual competition back in 2008, but have never nabbed the elusive first place trophy… until tonight!
We chose Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) by Eurythmics as our song this year, and took inspiration from the original video when creating our routine.
This year’s entries were judged on technical ability (uniformity, organization, precision, degree of difficulty, unique moves), artistic impression (choreography, music, crowd appeal, costumes, cart decor), and videography (creative shots, angles, timing).
What is a Book Cart Drill Team? From the DEMCO website: “People from all over the United States put together drill teams to represent their libraries. From just three people to as many as sixteen, librarians practiced dance moves with the aid of their book carts! Fun formations, music and crazy costumes made the competitions spectacular!”
We had a great time making the video & hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it!
(No librarians were harmed in the making of this video.)
