ATTENTION YOUNG DANCERS AGED 15-25!

I’m delighted to announce that Olwyn Lyons and I have been commissioned to lead a new contemporary class and choreography project with CoisCéim Dance Theatre‘s Creative Steps in January 2017. We have a really interesting theme in store and can’t wait to get started. Follow the link for details and spread the word! http://coisceim.com/walk-run-dance-creative-steps/

I have been collaborating with filmmaker, Gavin FitzGerald and Ciarán Gray, director of Company B on a dance film project since this time last year on a dance film project.

Company B is a youth contemporary dance company for boys, a group who take class and rehearse weekly at Dance House on Foley Street, Dublin 3. Last year we were awarded the 2013 Youth Ensembles Scheme grant by the Arts Council to make a dance film. We put together a short video as part of the application outlining our idea, which can be viewed below:

 

The film is now finished and is currently making the rounds at dance and film festivals in Ireland and abroad. Have a look at the trailer below and don’t forget to ‘like’ School Rush on Facebook.
