CREATIVE STEPS | YOUTH DANCE for ages 15 – 25
Central to the ethos of Creative Steps is to facilitate and enable young people to work inventively and imaginatively together – to take creative risks and explore the unknown – and to challenge themselves and others in the creation of original, high quality dance theatre.
Creative Steps participants have produced a number of short dance films and theatre productions, and have performed both locally and nationally at festivals including: Big Bang Festival of Rhythm, Longford Dance Festival, NOISEmoves Youth Dance Festival, Irish Youth Dance Festival and Culture Night. In 2014 members worked with Philippa Donnellan to create and perform Army Ants as part of CURTAIN RAISERS for CoisCéim Dance Theatre production of Agnes at Project Arts Centre.
All sessions run on Mondays from 6.00-9.00pm at CoisCéim Dance Theatre, 14 Sackville Place, Dublin 1. Sessions include Contemporary Dance technique class, choreographic/creative work and rehearsals. Additional rehearsals take place at weekends closer to the time of performances or during projects which run on a more intensive basis.
