Today was the 11th annual Massachusetts Library Association Book Cart Drill Team competition & the Robbins Library Rockin’ Robbins Book Cart Drill Team snagged yet another first place trophy!
This year we performed to Dead or Alive’s You Spin Me Round (Like A Record). We feel especially on trend this year, because as we were putting the finishing touches on our entry, Jimmy Fallon’s shot for shot re-creation of the music video aired. We feel like our creative interpretation is a bit more fun, but we’ll let you be the judges of that!
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 hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed making it!
