Selected dancers will be the only representatives from the north in a carnival that will feature over 5000 participants.

Successful dancers will have the honour of working with Nadine, a local critically acclaimed choreographer, as well as internationally renowned choreographer Manuela Benini who will travel from Brazil to Derry to host rehearsals.
