Kildare Dance and Movement Summer School 2011

11-15 July 2011

NUI Maynooth Co. Kildare

Kildare County Council is delighted to announce the 5th bi-annual Dance and Movement Summer School.  Join us this summer for a dynamic and energetic week of dance! The Kildare Dance Summer School offers a ‘pick and mix’ programme allowing you to immerse yourself in an exciting range of approaches to dance. Continue your professional development and apply your skills to working in different settings or dance just for the fun of it! Participants can enjoy sessions in creative dance and the unique experience of a Movement Choir.  All workshops are facilitated by experienced tutors. We welcome people of all backgrounds aged 18+. The summer school is based on Laban fundamentals,  however the programme will include other techniques and approaches and previous dance experience is not essential.

Dance and Older People Day Wednesday 13 July 2011

A special addition to this year's programme will be the inclusion on Wednesday 13 July of a day dedicated to dance and older people including a showcase of work by older dancers.  We extend a special invitation to older people and groups to join Summer School on this day to participate in a workshop and/or attend the showcase of work. Bursary awards are also available for older people living in County Kildare who wish to attend.  

Summer School Fees: The Dance Summer School costs € 350 for the week or €70 daily rate, which includes tuition fees and tea/coffee. 

Workshops take place Mon-Thurs 9.30am– 4.30pm, Fri 9.30am -1.30pm
