This January saw eight different primary schools from all around Derry come through our doors here at Echo Echo.
The dance workshops are designed to connect Primary Five classes from schools that wouldn’t normally get the opportunity to work with each other. The workshops have been led by four ensemble members of the company: Kelly Quigley, Ayesha Mailey, Zoe Ramsey and Janie Doherty.
The project got off to a great start and all the classes are making new friends and busting cool, groovy moves in our studios. Next week they will all come to see our winter fairy-tale ‘Lost in Frost’. Exciting stuff!
Thank you to all the schools for your hard work, energy and enthusiasm over the last couple of weeks.
This project has been supported by Derry City and Strabane District Council Good Relations Fund.
If your school is interested in working with Echo Echo just get in touch on the phone or online!
