5 Day Professional Development Programme

THE DOCK, CARRICK ON SHANNON, CO LEITRIM. 22ND - 26TH APRIL 2019

We are thrilled to announce the line up for the fourth annual Leitrim Dance Project week at The Dock Arts Centre, Carrick on Shannon, Co. Leitrim from Monday 22nd to Friday 26th April.

 

The programme is designed for emerging and established professional dancers who want to make dance part of their career and combines skills development alongside a programme of talks with leading dancers and dance organisations and an informal dance club held each evening. 

The programme is ideal for professional dancers who work in any percussive dance style, with a keen sense of body awareness, and a desire to create form in both sound and movement. Participants will be given the tools to create, explore and develop dance works-in-progress while using imaginary and physical guidelines. They will discover combinations of Quebec dancing steps, more complex and varied rhythms and a way to make the percussion of the feet resonate throughout the entire body.

Featuring: Yaelle Azoulay - Antoine Turmine - Cormac Begley - Edwina Guckian - Catherine Young - Roy Galvin - Danny Diamond - Anna Lethert - Stephen Doherty - Pádraig McGovern, Dave Sheridan & Colm O'Donnell - Áirc Damhsa - Sam Moore - Tara Killeen - Irish Traditional Music Archives and more.
