More Details:

New Moon Dance Company are working in collaboration with Green Spaces for Health (Cork Healthy Cities), Bishopstown Foróige, Cork Migrant Centre and Nano Nagle Place in the delivery of outreach workshops for 10-18 year olds which will culminate in a unique outdoor 'Pop Up Dance' performance on the streets of Cork at Coal Quay. The company has worked with eco-social artist Ashleigh Ellis through Green Spaces for Health also to explore the use of plant dyes and create eco art. These new skills have resulted in the creation of unique costumes.

This initiative aims to be inclusive and to share different approaches to dance. The participants include children attending an afterschool project who are very keen to engage with dance but don’t get the opportunity to attend dance classes as well as young people living in Direct Provision. 

Pop Up Dances is a dance project led by Dance Ireland, the national resource organisation for professional dance and a nationwide network of 12 youth dance companies who will deliver Pop Up Dance performances and workshops at each of their locations, with different groups, and dance styles.
