DU Dance is delighted to have two youth dancers involved in this international youth dance collective that was formed as part of a project run by Dublin Youth Dance Theatre. The dancers will perform at the Irish Youth Dance Festival in June, alongside 10 others youth dancers from Sweden, France and Ireland. This is a fantastic opportunity for the young people that will enable them to make connections which could open up doors for them in the future.
DU Dance will also send eight young dancers, four from Sutemos and four from Merge Cru to perform at the festival. The group will come together for a week long summer school from 22 June at the Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast to develop a piece for the Festival at the Pavilion Theatre, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin on 29th & 30th June. This is the first time in the eleven year history of the festival that dancers from the north have been involved.
