Dance Limerick's Summer Dance Fusion project will offer a unique opportunity for young people to experience an intensive two-week dance project incorporating exciting fusions of dance. The project will be led by Dublin Youth Dance Company's Justine Doswell and Limerick based Street Dancer Tobi Omoteso. No previous dance experience is required.
The participants will work in a fun, creative and supportive environment and learn basic technique and movement vocabulary as well as developing physical strength, co-ordination and confidence. The energetic and lively daily sessions will focus on a dynamic fusion of Contemporary dance, that combines many elements of different dance genres, in partnership with urban culture's latest street and hip hop techniques. Under the guidance of the facilitators, the project will take inspiration from Limerick City's streets and architecture and will emphasise playfulness and "drifting" around urban environments and how they make us feel and behave, connect or disconnect with our physical, social and emotional environments.
In addition to the 2 week daily studio sessions there is a rehearsal day on Sunday September 17 from 12-4pm followed by a short evening performance on Friday September 22 (Culture Night).
Through a combination of performance platforms, residency opportunities, master classes, talks and lectures, Dance Limerick will advocate for artistic dialogue and exchange. In collaboration with dance artists across a range of practices, Dance Limerick will promote the creation of new and innovative work and will devise programmes of access, engagement and participation for the wider public.
Based at the premises of the former Daghdha Dance Company, Dance Limerick houses offices and a fully equipped studio space along with a separate performance venue known as the Daghda Space
