Northern Ireland’s leading dance company, Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company is offering local teenagers a chance to participate in a one-day dance event to learn what being a part of a professional dance company is like.

To be held next weekend in the company’s own dance studio based in the Waterside Theatre, the Youth Dance Day is for any young person aged 13 years and over with an interest in dance and performing arts. Echo Echo encourages anyone interested in dance as a hobby or as a career to come along and join in- no matter what their experience or ability level. The youth dance day will start with a thorough warm up of the body to prevent injuries, and then tutor and professional dancer Ayesha Mailey will do exercises in choreography, composition, improvisation, and performance skills with participants working in groups/pairs or solos. The day will end with cool down time.

The Youth Dance Day will take place on Saturday, March 26, from 11am to 5pm and costs £10. There are a limited number of free places available. For more information, email:, phone: 71. 342266.
