Dance Limerick is delighted to announce 4 exciting dance projects for young people aged 8-12yrs and 13yrs+ during school holidays in February and March. Each week-long programme will take you on a journey of discovery, where you will work in a fun, creative and supportive environment with experienced hip hop and contemporary dancer Rachel Sheil.
You will learn to use movement as a form of expression and are encouraged to engage fully in the creation and formation of dance. The projects will culminate in informal performances at the end of each week.
