ABOUT SUMMER DANCE FUSION

Summer Youth Dance Fusion youth project offers a unique and inspirational opportunity to young people aged 13+ to experience an intensive two-week dance project incorporating an exciting fusion of dance styles. The project will be led by Dublin Youth Dance Company's Justine Doswell and Limerick based Street Dancer Tobi Omoteso. The opportunity will be open to all, with no requirement of previous dance experience.

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 celebration, the new creation will be performed publicly on Culture Night, Friday 22 September 2017. There will also be an informal showing on Friday August 18th for family and friends on the completion of the initial two-week period.
