This youth dance class will begin with greetings and a fun Hip-Hop based warm-up with light stretching. We will learn choreography to an energetic upbeat song and focus mainly on relaxing and enjoying the body. Footwork and Hip-Hop techniques will be shared to improve coordination and agility. This class will focus on letting go of the need to be perfect, and changing that focus to embracing the joy one can get from dance.

This workhop is part of John Scott’s irish modern dance theatre [IMDT] Dancer From The Dance festival this June and July. Drawing on national and international attention to Irish choreographers North and South of the border and to the greater Irish diaspora. Following huge critical success in New York and at home in Dublin last year, the festival aims to celebrate age, gender and ethnic diversity of Irish dance artists. In response to Covid-19, Scott takes his five-day dance festival to an online platform featuring the best of Irish contemporary dance in this second iteration of his wonderful celebration of dance that honours the diversity of Irish choreography from the four corners of the world.
