A new term starts for the intergenerational group in Ballycastle: Alternative Energies.

Alternative Energies

Intergenerational Dance Project in Ballycastle

Our Intergenerational Dance Project takes place weekly and brings together young people aged 15-18 years with elders 65+ living in the Ballycastle area

** Due to circumstances we have had to make some changes to this term.**

Workshops will now be on a WEDNESDAY 4pm – 5:30pm in the Sheskburn Recreation Centre, 7 Mary St, Ballycastle BT54 6QH


Workshops will start again on Wednesday 24th January and we would love to see some new young people there.  Come along and give it a go!

At a time when there are few situations that bring people of different generations together, the project seeks to address this lack of connection, advocating the power of dance as a vehicle for personal, social and community cohesion. 

For young people, the experience of being involved in this unique project supports personal development and many youth leadership programmes.

The workshops are free and the group are enjoying working, talking and creating together, devising performances and events that will resonate with people of different ages.
