‘Next Door’ is a large-scale outdoor inter-cultural dance festival that will take place in Belfast on the afternoon of Saturday 19th September. Over 300 local dancers will take to the streets of the city in dozens of pop up performances. Expect to see many different kinds of dance, from Ballet to Belly Dance, Tango to traditional dances, Hip Hop will body pop and Cheer leaders will cheer.
From 1:30pm dance groups will be popping up in unexpected places all over the city. Put down your shopping bags and come join us at 3.30pm in the grounds of City Hall where you a can watch or maybe even jump up on your feet and join in a big dance celebration to live music by Beyond Skin. If you fancy bringing a blanket you could even have a picnic and then take some time to visit the dance photography exhibition in the foyer of City Hall.
This event is part of DU Dance NI’s Dance in the Isles festival. Come help us welcome dance groups from across the UK and Ireland to Belfast for a fantastic weekend of dance activity.
