(AT A) DISTANCE DANCING | Fairview Park
LED BY ANTHEA MCWILLIAMS
Since 2020, Anthea has led (AT A) DISTANCE DANCING workshops in Lisburn Park. We were delighted to welcome her to Dublin, in-person, to guide participants in some big moves & some small moves in the beautiful surroundings of Fairview Park.
WHEN 16, 23, 30 June, 7 July
WHERE Fairview Park, Dublin 3. Meet from 1.45pm at the concrete base of the bandstand – beside the skate-park. CLICK HERE for map.
After a physically distanced group introduction & warm-up, Anthea leads off with some short choreographed sequences that travel along the pathways through the trees accompanied by some lively recorded music. There is time to enjoy some improvisation, strength building, balance, coordination, timing, rhythm, speed, dynamics, breathing all the way of course and fun! The workshops end in a spacious circle for some stretches, reaches, roll downs, breaths and reflections.

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!
