The Door in 2019
CREATIVE DANCE WORKSHOPS
From 29 April to 24 May, Philippa Donnellan and Emma O’Kane led a series of taster dance workshops with Dun Laoghaire Active Retirement Group, Ozanam House Active Retirement Group, Fatima community group/FGU, and Newcastle Active Retirement Group. Informal and energising, these workshops invited participants to dance together, exchange stories around the theme, and create a few original moves of their own.
“…. we all enjoyed the Dance Workshops with Philippa….and we had great fun and came out feeling relaxed and happy” – Gabrielle Lowe, DLR Active Retirement Group Coordinator
“I thought I’d only go the once to see…but I’ve loved every minute and came to every class.” – participant
“really enjoyed the process, it was good to push myself” – Fatima Groups United member
DANCING THROUGH THE DOOR | TEA DANCE 2019
On Sunday 26 May at the Pillar Room, Rotunda Hospital in Dublin over 100 people came together to dance and show choreography created during the workshops. The informal presentations offered some powerful experiences, from stories of rejection and exclusion to unexpected celebratory embraces, and triggered some insightful responses by members of the public.
In 2019, THE DOOR was also supported by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.
