5 Day Dance Development Programme for Adults & Youths

THE DOCK, CARRICK ON SHANNON, CO LEITRIM.

13th - 19TH APRIL 2020

We are thrilled to announce the line up for the fitfh annual Leitrim Dance Project week at The Dock Arts Centre, Carrick on Shannon, Co. Leitrim from Monday 13th to Friday 17th April 2020.

 

The programme is designed for dancers who want to further their development in percussive dance or have hopes to make dance part of their career. The course combines skills development alongside a programme of talks and workshops with leading dancers and dance organisations and an informal dance club held each evening. 

The programme is ideal for adult and youth 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. 

Note: Youths must be between 10 - 14 years.

Featuring: Mairi Rankin - Maelody Cameron - Mac Morin - John Scott - Myles O' Reilly - Edwina Guckian - Liam Scanlon - Áine MCGeeney - World Academy of Irish Music & Dance - Philip Delamere - Áirc Damhsa and more.
