Derry’s award-winning Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company has a fresh and funky Dance Summer Scheme for children starting next month.

Starting on Monday, July 2, to Friday, July 6, the professional dance company welcomes children aged 5-12-years-old to their dance studio in Derry’s Playhouse Theatre for one week.

This year the creative classes will be taught by local professional dancers Kelly Quigley and Janie Doherty.

This time, the class will be slightly different as it will have a hip hop edge, mixing authentic music and moves from this style with Echo Echo’s usual movement games and sequences.

The Echo Echo dancers ensure the classes are fun and an opportunity for children to express themselves through movement.

They will teach the kids choreography as well as encourage their imaginations to improvise and create.

The summer scheme is open to boys and girls of all abilities and there is no need for any previous dance experience.

The children will get the opportunity to show off what they learned in a short performance on the last day of the summer scheme. for family and friends.

The 5-7-year group is from 10am to 11am each morning and costs £20 for the full week.

The 8-12 year group starts at 11.30am and runs until 1pm costing £30.
