Primary Schools Dance Festival 2019
17th May 2019
Our 11th annual Primary Schools Dance Festival took place at Belvoir Players Theatre on 15th & 16th May 2019. The festival offers children of primary school age the opportunity to perform in an exciting, supportive, non-competitive context. It is open to any style of dance and all levels.
158 children aged 4-11 performed to a combined audience of more than 270.
During the the festival pupils and teachers were able to share their work with other schools in a professional theatre setting.
We were also delighted to invite Palmira Rendilheiro, from Cape Town, South Africa as our special guest artist for the second year in a row. Palmira performed a fusion of contemporary dance and jazz which delighted the audience.
Paula Bittles of George Best Belfast City Airport presented certificates to the children following their performances.
Well done to all the young dancers, their teachers, parents, support staff, and the enthusiastic audience.
We would like to extend a special thanks to George Best Belfast City Airport Community Fund for providing funding for this project.
