Dance Theatre of Ireland, Ireland’s foremost contemporary Dance Company will be holding our annual Summer Dance Intensive for young people in our purpose-built Centre for Dance, located at the Bloomfields Shopping Centre in the heart of Dun Laoghaire. The classes are for those who love to dance – and will be led by leading professional dancers who have worked with Dance Theatre of Ireland.
The course is designed to give young people exposure and experience in a variety of dance styles – concentrating on modern forms of dance. Emphasis will be placed on FUN through DANCE, learning, creating and performing.
The morning sessions begin with a ‘technique’ or warm up class, designed to limber, stretch, strengthen and develop coordination – the elements of good dance technique. The participants will learn a variety of dance routines – in Contemporary, Street (hip hop) and Stage dance to popular and World Music, including excerpts from musicals like Hair Spray, Lion King & HH to Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake &many more as well as create their own routines both individually and with others.
The group will also be led through structured improvisation & games designed to develop each individual’s own movement creating their own dances in small groups.
Each week long course will culminate in an informal showing of some of the dance projects that have been developed. Parents and friends are invited to attend.
