Calling all young dance enthusiasts aged 6-12 years olds to come dance for Cruinniú na nÓG 2021. Curated by Kerry County Council Dancer in residence Catherine Young, classes will run May 6th to May 27th over Zoom each Thursday and will culminate in a dance film with the participants.
The participative project, titled ‘Our Animal Grooves’ invites children aged 6 to 12 years old to discover the animal world through dance and movement. Children will be encouraged to dance, imagine and look closely at living creatures from different environments. Through the art of dance, children will explore animals small and large, from the sea, farms, zoos, jungles and beyond.
At the end of the series of workshops, a film collating the collective creativity of the dance participants will be shared on the 12th June as part of Cruinniú na nÓg, the day celebrating creativity for children and young people.
The workshops will be facilitated by dancer, choreographer and educator Monica Muňoz. Originally from Barcelona, now based in Ireland, Muňoz has worked as a dancer throughout Europe for over 20 years. She is passionate about facilitating dance for all ages and has created dance programmes for all generations.
The workshops are scheduled for Thursday afternoons over zoom for the month of May commencing May 6th for 4 weeks and will facilitate 3 different age groups. To register your child please email firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate the appropriate age group; 6-8 years; 8-10 years or 10-12 years.
This project is supported by Creative Ireland and Kerry County Council.
