International Dance Day Tea Party
To celebrate International Dance Day, we were delighted to be joined by so many familiar and fresh faces in a wonderfully madcap TEA DANCE PARTY live on Zoom. Led by Philippa, we were joined by special guest – flautist Lina Andonovska playing live! Not only is Lina a fine flute player of world renown, but she’s also an accomplished Flamenco dancer. From the comfort of your homes we found our dancing shoes, put the kettle and danced!
DAY | Wednesday 29 April
TIME | 2.00 – 3:30pm
Drop-in Dance Classes – Dublin
PLEASE NOTE that in light of government advice, our classes and other participation projects have been cancelled until further notice.
An enjoyable and relaxing way to stay in shape, each class combines easy stretch exercises and dance sequences which help to maintain flexibility, strength, balance and coordination. Bring a partner or come alone and have fun dancing to music of all styles. No experience necessary – everyone welcome. Each class lasts for up to 1 ½ hours including break.
No booking – no registration – just drop-in and dance!
The Wednesday dance classes for people aged 50+ began at St Teresa’s Church in 2007. Initially set up to run for three 8 week terms annually, the classes, due to their popularity now run all year round. Our new location at The Carmelite Community Centre – 56 Aungier Street offers a calm and light-filled space in which to dance. Strange though it may seem the sun always shines on a Wednesday afternoon between 2 to 3.30pm (yes it’s true we’ve counted the times!), but then perhaps that’s because we all have a sunnier outlook after dancing!
