Laois Arts Office Summer Programme 2013 - Dance Workshop

I'm delighted to share the video of the Dance Workshop at Dunamaise Arts Centre, Portlaoise as part of the Laois Arts Office Summer Programme 2013. The children worked really hard during that week (1  to 5th July) learning 2 dance pieces and creating a dance phrase with my guidance. Their age group was between 9 and 12yrs and their experience in dance was none or little.
At the end of the programme they put great effort by performing to friends and family. Those dance classes in Portlaoise surely challenged them about confidence, self-presentation, communication skills, stamina, teamwork and collaboration, the ability to cope with criticism and learn from it, time management and organizational skills, self-awareness, self-discipline, an open mind and the ability to move beyond boundaries and experience different ideas.I hope you enjoy watching as much as I did teaching them.
