Cruinniú na nÓg 2022: Pop Up Dances!

Calling all children, young people, families and dance fans!
Get ready to experience and be part of Pop Up Dances, a nationwide dance project which all young people can take part in, as part of Creative Ireland’s Cruinniú na nÓg on Sat 11 June.

For this year’s activities, we have partnered with 12 youth dance groups who have organised incredible workshops and dance performances. Over the coming weeks the youth dance groups will have Pop Up Dance opportunities at each of their locations, with different groups, and dance styles. (See below for listing).

Look out for these fun workshops and online dance challenges to be part of in the lead up to 11 June. 

Across the country, young people will be sharing their dances with each other, letting us all know what inspires them to move and dance and why all should dance!

We are excited to see all the dance creations, workshops and performances to be shared on 11 June, a day of creativity for children and young people 

Be part of the action and take part! Share what dance means to you and what inspires you to dance.  #PopUpDances  #CreativeIreland #DanceIreland
